Is there anything better than brunch? We think not. It’s not quite breakfast, and it’s not quite lunch, but it’s the perfect in-between stage where you can get away with eating yummy breakfast food while also sipping on some delicious cocktails. After all, it’s 5 o’clock somewhere. If you’re the kind of person that loves to go for brunch, you’ll probably already be well-versed with the yummy drinks that are normally on offer. They compliment the food well, they taste divine, and they are the perfect drinks to put a smile on your face. Yes, these are the best brunch cocktails.
Let’s be honest; no brunch would be complete without a Bloody Mary. While it may seem like one of the strangest concoctions on the drinks menu, this collection of tomato juice, vodka, spices, and a few sprigs of vegetables is pretty special. It’s hot and spicy, but it’s also cooling and refreshing. What could be better than that? Well, it seems as though this drink won’t stunt your diet too much either, because you’re still getting some of your 5-a-day.
If you’ve never had a Mimosa before, then you seriously need to head down to your favorite brunch destination and fill your boots with it. That’s because a Mimosa gives you the chance to have champagne late in the afternoon, all in the name of brunch! This cocktail is made by mixing champagne and citrus juice, although it’s mostly served with orange juice. It’s the perfect balance between breakfast and adult time, and that’s exactly why we love it.
There are many people in this world that can’t function without coffee, and we feel you on that one. Caffeine makes the world go around, but that doesn’t mean that you can’t transform your coffee brunch experience into something a bit more special. An Irish Coffee is one that is topped with whiskey and whipped cream and can be served either hot or cold. This means that you still get your caffeine hit, but with a little extra boost.
There’s a high chance that you’ve already tried a Bellini because it’s one of the most delicious cocktails on the market. While you can drink this cocktail at all hours of the day, it matches perfectly with the light-but-filling food that you eat during brunch. Just imagine sipping this peach drink with some avocado on toast in front of you. Maybe even a few rashers of bacon and a poached egg on the top. Yes, we’re sold!
There’s nothing better than drinking something fruity in the morning, and we’d go as far to say that the Melon Patch is one of the best fruity cocktails out there. This vodka-based drink contains vodka, triple sec, club soda, and melon, and is extremely refreshing. It’s normally served in a tall glass, which means that you can savor every sip as you also enjoy your brunch. Of course, you also need a large side of gossip. No brunch would be complete without gossip.
If you’re the kind of person that’s just as obsessed with brunch as we are, you’ll know that there’s nothing better than sipping on gin and juice as you catch up with your best friends. That’s why these brunch cocktails are perfect for every brunch occasion.
