Brunch has always been a favorite pastime of mine. It enables me to fend off my hangover and discuss what got into my girlfriends last night. Brunch is the last ditch effort to pretend like you don’t have to drag yourself into the rat race tomorrow and simultaneously try NOT to kill yourself. So drink it up ladies because this is the last chance before Monday morning shows its sorry behind. BOOOO MONDAYS BOOOOOOO!
I’ve got cocktails here to freshen up brunch because lets face it, if we had to consume one more Andre based mimosa we were going to rip off our Shellac nails without the help of acetone.
Wakey Wakey Eggs and Bakey
This one is for all my mixologists
- 1½ oz. bacon infused gin
- 1 oz. egg whites
- ½ oz. fresh lemon juice
- ½ oz. honey syrup
I loved this drink because it reminded me of a Pisco sour, a personal favorite of mine.
To create bacon infused gin, simply place a few pieces of bacon in a bottle of gin and let it sit in the fridge over night. For honey syrup mix hot water, honey, and sugar together until the sugar is completely dissolved. To make the cocktail put everything into a shaker filled with ice and shake. Pour into a glass and serve with eggs any style.
Island Hydration (sort of)
To help with that impending hangover try this coconut water cocktail.
- 2 oz. pineapple juice
- 1 oz. coconut water
- 1 oz. white rum
This recipe is super easy. Just pour the ingredients into a glass filled with ice. Enjoy!
In college when you were caught doing the saunter of shame you were referred to as a shaker. Even though we have our BA’s some of us still commit this act over the weekend.
- 1 oz. Stolichnaya Blueberi Vodka
- 2 oz. prosecco
- 5 blackberries
First off all for those of you who don’t know what prosecco is it’s an Italian sparkling white wine. It’s the key ingredients in Bellinis. My girlfriend Sam introduced it to me and I’ve never looked back. It’s better than American sparkling white wine and still cheaper than champagne.
Muddle the berries, add the vodka, and shake. Then pour into a glass filled with shaved ice and add prosecco. Also try not to leave your jewelry at his place.
The Bitter Hottie
Did you spy your crush or ex with another girl last night? If so you may be in desperate need of the bitter hottie… only because it matches you so well. You’re sexy but you’re pissed. It’s ok girl, he was only a junior level associate anyways
- 2 oz. IPA
- 1 oz. Sriracha sauce
- 2 oz. limejuice lime
- 2 oz. bitters
Pour all ingredients into a glass filled with ice. Sip Away.
Happy Brunching, ladies and remember, no judging. No one can be blamed for her actions after 5 whiskey ginger ales.
