Brunch is by far one of the most versatile and popular meals people gather for year round. However, it seems as the weather begins to get nicer and patios everywhere open up their seating and shade-creating umbrellas, brunch becomes something that is even more common. If you are someone who likes to spend your time with friends and family over midday food and cocktails, you probably do so most often at a restaurant or cafe. But what if you want to host your own brunch? Can you offer those close to you a brunch experience like they would get at their favorite hole-in-the-wall restaurant? We think so! Especially if you shop the large liquor selection at World Beverage. In this post, we are going to give you some insight regarding the most popular brunch cocktails and teach you how truly easy they are to make yourself. Continue reading below to learn more.
One of the simplest brunch cocktails, the screwdriver is a classic that can be made quickly and with a nearly any brand of vodka. A combination of orange juice and vodka is all that this drink is made of. Depending on what you have planned for the rest of the day, you can certainly fluctuate how much vodka you put into your personal screwdriver.
Ah, the bloody mary! A brunch classic that is the personal favorite of people who may have imbibed a bit too much the night before your brunch takes place. Tomato juice and vodka make up the base this revitalizing cocktail, but many variations exist as well. A classic bloody mary, however, includes Tabasco, salt, Worcester Sauce and a touch of pepper in addition to the aforementioned juice and liquor.
If you aren’t quite ready to drink vodka before noon, the mimosa is a great option for you. A simple combination of orange juice and champagne, the mimosa is a brunch staple you can’t really afford to skip. Not a huge fan of champagne? Substitute it with a wheat beer for the recently coined “manmosa”.
You can make this tropical dream of a drink by simply combining tequila, grenadine and orange juice. Pour the grenadine into the bottom of the glass and then layer the tequila and the orange juice. We would also suggest that you garnish with some fresh orange slices or pineapple slivers!
If you want to take your brunch to the next level, you may want to try out a Bellini. Sort of like the fancier version of a mimosa, a Bellini is just Prosecco, white peaches and fresh peach puree combined in a champagne or wine glass. This drink is deliciously refreshing, so much so that we doubt you will be able to have just one.
For those who enjoy a steaming cup of coffee with their brunch, an Irish coffee offers the perfect amount of earthiness from the coffee and bite from a splash of spirits, normally whiskey. This drink will put a little hair on your chest and wake you up without a doubt.
This drink is fairly light on the alcohol, but for what it lacks in booze, it makes up from in fruit. Simple throw your favorite summer fruits into the bottom of a glass, add peach schnapps and orange juice, mix and you have a very refreshing summer cocktail that won’t be too much for you to handle.
