2 EASTER BRUNCH COCKTAILS

2 EASTER BRUNCH COCKTAILS

Easter celebrations are best when they start early in the day.  First, the kids find their hidden Easter baskets, then look for the hidden eggs.  And the adults watch the shenanigans while sipping a delicious libation.  I have a suggestion for you today for 2 Easter brunch cocktails that are fruity, sweet, but not overly sweet, and packs a punch.  These are definitely ‘one and done’ cocktails unless you have a nap scheduled before brunch is served.

2 Easter Brunch Cocktails: one a grapefruit mimosa in a champagne flute and the other is a Royal French 75 - a sparkling, lemony gin cocktail.

The first cocktail is a Rose՛ Grapefruit Mimosa.  A very simple take on a classic mimosa, except using pink grapefruit juice.  I like using a sweeter Rose՛ sparkling wine to offset the bitterness of the grapefruit juice.  Plus, I love the pink color for an Easter brunch cocktail.

The second cocktail is a twist on a Classic French 75, which is a lemony, sparkling gin cocktail that is very refreshing.  The twist is using an Elderflower liqueur to sweeten it and add a floral note that is delicious.  Be careful with this one though.  It’s stronger than you think with three types of alcohol.
