Cocktail Enthusiast is hosting this month’s Mixology Monday on October 24th. The theme is “morning drinks.” Breakfast cocktails were the norm in the nineteenth century, when cocktails were a common beginning to one’s day. The drink’s purpose was to help the imbiber recover from the past night’s indiscretions and to steel their resolve for the coming day.
We’re all familiar with bloody marys, mimosas and bellinis, but what else constitutes a breakfast drink? We’re looking for corpse revivers, eye openers and hair of the dog – drinks that jump start your morning, absolve the prior night’s sins or just taste really good with eggs and bacon.
Maybe you like to fortify breakfast smoothies with gin. Or perhaps you’ve concocted an alcoholic sangrita that pairs nicely with migas. Regardless, let’s see some morning cocktails. To participate, simply —
1. Find or create a cocktail for morning consumption. Be as creative as you want, utilizing common breakfast ingredients like orange juice and coffee, or branching out with bacon-infused spirits, eggs or stomach-settling bitters. The drink doesn’t have to be your original creation, but if you borrow, please credit your source.
2. Post your cocktail recipe and a photo on your blog, including some details on the drink. In your post, include the MxMo logo and a link back to Cocktail Enthusiast and Mixology Monday.
3. Post a link to your submission in the comments section of this post or send it to me via email. And if you don’t have a blog, no worries. Just email me your recipe and photo following the above guidelines.
The due date is Monday, October 24th. We’ll say 11:59pm Pacific Time. Spread the word, and get mixing! We’re looking forward to everyone’s submissions.
UPDATE: MxMo has come to a close. Check out the Morning Drinks Roundup.
Here is my submission, just in time.
