This is the season to celebrate the warming weather and spring holidays. Relax and host an Easter brunch with some fabulous food and drink. If you’re hunting (Easter egg-style) for colorful, spring-centric cocktails to pair alongside a savory ham or a springy frittata, look no further than these fizzy glasses that will make you think of warmer weather.
For Easter brunch, we’re thinking drinks that are crisp and refreshing with a touch of fruit to bring you out of the winter blues. These lighter, simple drinks get a shot of color and effervescence to mimic the cheery mood of spring. Put down your embellished eggs, wash your color-stained hands and whip up these celebratory cocktails in a cinch.
Here’s a roundup of our favorite Sunday brunch beverages:
Champagne Cocktail (pictured above)
Champagne gets a sweet fix in this festive cocktail. Simply soak a sugar cube in aromatic angostura bitters, drop in a flute and top with chilled Champagne. The spiral of lemon peel will give this drink an elegant twist.
This crowd-pleasing punch made of hibiscus tea, tart grapefruit juice, pisco brandy and crisp Sauvignon Blanc is a wake-up call that spring is here! Let this concoction chill with mango and orange slices and then serve with sweet berries.
Make the simple orange-and-cream sherbet base the night before and freeze. For easy entertaining, simply scoop into glasses, top with some bubbly and garnish with a strawberry for a delicious take on the traditional mimosa.
