On lazy weekend mornings, nothing beats brunch. Comforting breakfast meals are made better when accompanied by a cocktail. You don’t have to leave your apartment to have the full experience — treat yourself to brunch at home with these summer cocktail recipes that feature simple, seasonal ingredients.
It’s hard to think of a more fitting summer cocktail than a peach bellini. The drink — made from peach puree and prosecco — is simple to make and so satisfying on a summer day. This post from Cookie and Kate covers a few different ways you can go about preparing a fresh peach bellini. Tip: To make it the authentic Italian way, opt for white peaches over yellow.
When it comes to cocktails for brunch at home, you can’t go wrong with a Bloody Mary. Use heirloom tomatoes for a lighter, fresher version of the beloved cocktail. Or, opt to make things a little more interesting by adding peppers, olives, celery — or pretty much anything else you want to your Bloody Mary.
Traditional margaritas are delicious, but a subtle twist on the classic recipe can take these Mexican drinks to the next level. This recipe incorporates mango, orange juice and chili into the lime and tequila duo, giving way to a unique and tasty cocktail that’s perfect for brunch at home.
If you can’t decide between coffee or a cocktail, have both with this Dublin iced coffee. You’ll need cold brew, stout, whiskey, cream and simple syrup. A sprinkle of cinnamon is the finishing touch of this caffeinated cocktail.
Kombucha is a fermented tea brimming with probiotics, which may be beneficial to your gut health. But aside from its potential health benefits, kombucha is loved for its tart flavors and slightly effervescent consistency. If you have kombucha and vodka on hand, this brunch cocktail recipe couldn’t be simpler.
