Going out for brunch cocktails might sound like a once-per-month, Saturday morning kind of deal. Of course – brunch tends to be over-priced. You’re paying for the “experience” of a well-dressed, late-morning, small-plate meal with brunch drinks. But having morning drinks at home doesn’t have to be any different. You can have all the same drinks for a fraction of the price (and certainly more food) than any restaurant will give you.How to Think of Brunch Cocktails
Now, let’s get your brunch in order. The first thing you will learn when looking at brunch cocktails is that you have more options than you think. People tend to limit themselves to Bloody Mary’s and mimosas for brunch. But there are plenty of other drinks you can share with your friends in the morning that include beer, champagne, wine and much more. Hell, you could have a margarita or a lone shot of tequila for breakfast if you wanted. However, if you’re creating an experience for friends and family, it’s ideal to create a breakfast atmosphere. Drinks work well for brunch when they have a naturally “sunny” or “fruity” vibe about them. Also, you’re not trying to get people sloshed at noon. Part of this is simply starting the day right. That said, there’s nothing better than a Bloody Mary done right. You also can’t go wrong with a mimosa or tequila sunrise, or any of these other brunch drink recipe you like. Everyone has a favorite brunch cocktail, right? Bloody Marys can go either way. Mimosas tend to be crowd-pleasers. Some of us are even simpler and prefer a classic vodka and orange juice – the famous Screwdriver. Maybe you’ve got a big group and want to share a bowl of sangria with the fam. It will all ultimately depend on what you’re serving and who you’re with. Now, choose one of these morning cocktails and roll with it.
