“Brunch” and “Sunday” go together like orange juice and Prosecco—really, they were made for each other. We’ve put together some of our favorite brunch cocktails for you, including no-fail classics as well as new twists on old stand-bys. Cheers to brunching!
Let’s take a classic cocktail and give it a local spin. Mimosas are synonymous with brunch. Our favorite take on this bubbly beverage is to add an extra part of Tattersall Orange Crema with your dry bubbles and fresh squeezed orange juice.
- 4 Parts Dibon Cava
- 1 Part Tattersall Orange Crema
- Splash of fresh squeezed Orange Juice
For a twist: You could always substitute Tattersall Grapefruit Crema and grapefruit juice if you don’t mind some tartness!
Breakfast Old Fashioned
A few times a year our Liquor Buyer Tom throws a fancy brunch where every person is in charge of a different part of the morning/afternoon. His is always his Breakfast Old Fashioned. Maple syrup and bourbon: who could say no?
- 2 Parts Eagle Rare 10 year Bourbon (cherry vanilla forward)
- 1 Part Sortilege Maple Liqueur
- 5 Dashes of Fee Brothers Walnut Bitters
- Garnish with an orange peel
For a twist: Make a Brandy Breakfast Old Fashioned with Copper & Kings toasty vanilla-forward profile!
Bloody Mary, duh…
Bloody Marys are the quintessential brunch cocktail. It’s the best way to start the day, especially if you had a rough night the evening before. Here at France 44 we thoroughly enjoy a few different bloody Mary mixes, including Cutwater Bloody Mary Mix. Previously known as Ballast Point Bloody Mary Mix, this mix is jam-packed with flavor–most notably horseradish. Another crowd-pleaser is Nan’s Bloody Mark Mix, which is so tomato-forward you could almost make a sloppy joe with it!
- 2 Parts Skaalvenn Vodka
- 5 Parts Cutwater or Nan’s Bloody Mary Mix
- Garnish with a celery stalk and a thick strip of bacon
For a twist: Substitute Aquavit for a spicy take! Use Tattersall if you enjoy caraway, or Skaalvenn if you don’t mind a little black pepper and anise.
