Parents say restaurant served their kids mimosas

Jeremy and Dawn DeRoo were having brunch at Bazil restaurant in Rochester, New York, when they say their kids were served mimosas. They said when they got home the kids slept all day and seemed to have hangovers on Monday.

The DeRoos say their 7-year-old daughter said the orange juice tasted funny, but her mother tried it and thought it might just be a different brand, so she told her she could drink it.

When the DeRoos heard people at another table complain that the juice tasted like mimosas, they realized there was alcohol in their kids' drinks.

The server apologized and gave the children milk, but the family left the restaurant upset because they said managers never came to their table to apologize for the mistake.

The DeRoos tried calling police but said they were told that mistakes happen, but Jeremy DeRoo was furious. "That's not good enough for parents having kids, drunk and sleeping all day," he told WHAM-TV. "It's not fair. These little kids shouldn't have any alcohol period."

Bazil's owner, Danny Daniele, said he was there that day but wasn't told what happened. He said it was the restaurant's first Sunday brunch, and there could have been a mix-up with the juice containers, which he says have since been relabeled.

Daniele said that when he learned of the incident, he apologized to the DeRoos, and sent them an email offering to refund the cost of their meal. The DeRoos said they don't plan to sue.
