As silly as this sounds, this is absolutely true. Quite possibly one of the most popular aspects of brunch are the drinks offered with meals.
Brunch cocktails match perfectly with your breakfast and lunch menu items, and allow for customers to get the full experience. Here are a few easy brunch cocktails that you can add to your menu:
Drink your morning orange juice or citrus with a bit of alcohol. Mimosas are a classic brunch cocktail that often feature a chilled champagne or sparkling wine, mixed with citrus juice. While orange juice is the most popular, many variations can be made.
Torani, a brand of syrups and sauces, has a great recipe for a Blueberry Lemon Mimosa, which is a delicious combination of lemonade, champagne and blueberry syrup. The brand also has recipes for a Pomegranate Mimosa and a Raspberry Mimosa.
Champagne on its own is also a great brunch beverage, but a more unique way to enjoy it is to use it as a base for a delicious cocktail. Champagne can be very versatile. It can be mixed with flavored liqueurs, syrups, fresh juices and much more.
There is no single way to create a good champagne cocktail because they can be made with a variety of ingredients. Monin’s Passion Fruit Champagne is a simple recipe that makes the perfect spring or summertime drink. With extra dry champagne and a touch of passion fruit syrup, you can serve your customers a unique and refreshing beverage.
Similarly to mimosas, screwdrivers are a great way to serve tasty citrus. Instead of champagne, add vodka to a glass of orange juice. Liven up this classic drink with delicious flavored syrup. Add a hint of berry with 1883 fruit-flavored syrup, or a sweet floral flavor to make your drink match perfectly with the spring season.
