Brunch cocktails

Looking for ideas other than mimosas or bloody marys. Something seasonal would be a plus.

How about champagne or dry white wine, with a dash of Amer Picon.

Perfect! Thanks!

It sounds beautiful, especially with the lemon.

Prossecco/Cava and pomegranate juice - light and fruity.

And Pretty! I am suggesting this to my sister, who is hosting a shower this weekend.

Yes, the color is pink/purple and very easy to serve. A simple garish of lemon peel or fruit makes it look fancy schmancy

Oh LBF, I must disagree! The milk punch makes a fabulous aperitif! And done well, I don't find them overly sweet or cloying. I mean, sure, it's not a martini, but the brandy/bourbon + maple syrup (versus powdered sugar) is soooooo good with the milk and cream. Gah, I love them! :)

Have you ever enjoyed a Milk Punch? They are an unbelievably good cocktail, often served as a celebratory libation. Here's my favorite recipe:

man, em, i love me some milk punch, but i would serve it w/ brunch dessert cuz it's so sweet! do you think irish whiskey would work as a sub for bourbon (which i don't like?)

ATG I really like alot of these ideas but i would counsel you to choose something not very sweet, particularly with egg dishes and other savories. i confess to a predilection for red sangria.....

I like a French 75 (English version) Gin, Champagne, Lemon juice, simple syrup

For a mocktail option, try a Pussy Foot.

I like St. Germaine or Creme de Violette stirred into cava. Earl Grey or black tea infused gin served in sweetened lemonade. Likewise, lavender syrup, gin & lemonade. Grapefruit gin & tonic.
