New Years Day Spirit Infused Brunch – The Drinks (recipes)
Just because you went to bed on New Years Eve, that does not mean that the celebration has to stop. This little pinup LOVES brunch with friends, and the best excuse for brunch would have to be New Years Day. Nowhere to be, and no real errands to run. Just time to linger over good food with good friends. And since you don’t have any pressing things to get done, why not have a little cocktail?
So, if you had a little too much New Years Eve and are in need of some hair of the dog that bit you, or are more my speed and just want one little drink over a long brunch with friends, I have a few cocktails to start the new year off right.
½ oz. pomegranate liqueur
½ oz. Triple Sec
3 oz. Laurent-Perrier Brut Champagne
Pour the pomegranate liqueur into a flute. Stir in the Triple Sec and top off slowly with Laurent-Perrier Brut Champagne. Garnish with a few pomegranate seeds.
2 oz. hot milk
½ oz. CAMUS VSOP Elegance
1 oz. Maison CAMUS French Roast
1 oz. simple syrup
Foam milk to fill up glass. Brew the French Roast as Espresso, then slowly add the syrup, CAMUS Cognac and hot milk on top. Use a teaspoon to place the milk foam on top.
Stir and serve with three Maison CAMUS Coffee beans for garnish.
1 ½ oz. Sobieski Orange Vodka
½ oz. lemon juice
½ oz. simple syrup
Splash of Aperol (optional, but HIGHLY recommended.)
