Brunch Cocktails are Back, Baby
What could be better than rolling out of bed on a Sunday morning, walking down the street to your favorite brunch spot, and ordering a pitcher full of bottomless Mimosas? The only thing that comes close is doing the same with a Bloody Mary.
Once reserved mostly for quiet church-goers and fancy holiday meals, brunch has become a hallmark of Millennial culture in America’s urban centers. People in weirdly diverse demographics, from young professionals to starving artists, have come to view Sunday (and increasingly Saturday) mornings as the domain of day-drinking and Eggs Benedict.
While a lot of brunch cocktails are drawn from the pantheon of hangover cures, there are a number of qualities that we looked for when compiling this list. Fresh fruit juices and champagne are always a good indicator of brunchiness, as is the presence of coffee (be it hot or iced). Low-alcohol drinks are also great, as they’re less likely to knock you out of commission for the day.
So whether you’re hosting a brunch party at home, or just heading out on the town to get a little hair of the dog before the work week starts up again, we hope this drink collection can get your creativity going.
