Boozy Brunch Cocktail Drinks that go Beyond the Common Cocktails
It’s time to reimagine Boozy Brunch Cocktail recipes. The blissful summer season is approaching and with that comes daytime sipping! If you’re bored by the traditional Mimosa and over the garish Bloody Mary’s complete with a full breakfast on top masquerading as a garnish, it’s time to step out of the traditional brunch cocktails box. Below are some fresh options that go beyond the common cocktails!
With selections like a refreshing Morning Margarita with blood orange juice from Corralejo Tequila, a creamy White Russian from St. George Spirits, a twist on the Aperol Spritz from Cutwater and much more, your morning get-together is bound to be different from the rest. Pair these with brunch classics such as pancakes, eggs benedict, French toast, and more.
