I do not know if it is the light or because my energy level is optimal, but I really prefer to receive for brunch. It must also be said that I love lunch and that it inspires me to be able to offer savory and sweet dishes at the same time. Except that today, I’m not talking about food. Nope. In fact, I’m presenting you 3 really wow cocktails to serve at your next family reception. * Mother’s Day is approaching dads, so take notes!
3 brunch cocktails
At brunch, I’m used to serving rather classic cocktails. Mimosa is one of my favorite drinks. But to change my old habits, I have developed other ideas for festive and really delicious cocktails that you will love to share with your family.
Strawberry / basil float
The strawberry / basil float is drunk, but can also be eaten with a teaspoon. I suggest you let it sit for a few minutes before serving so that the sorbet has time to melt and mix with the wine. You’ll see, it’s divine!
To make this cocktail, you will need a White Zin rosé Woodbridge by Robert Mondavi Wines, de tonic, strawberries, strawberry / basil sorbet (version House or store) and a few basil leaves.
In each glass, put 1 scoop of strawberry / basil sorbet, add 100 ml of wine and 50 ml of tonic. Finish by decorating with fresh strawberries and basil leaves, then serve.
My second suggestion is actually a homemade raspberry lemonade with a hint of white wine. To prepare this cocktail, mix 40 ml of lemon juice, 80 ml of wine, 30 ml of raspberry syrup, crushed ice, frozen raspberries and a few slices of organic lemon. If you find this cocktail too sweet, add less raspberry syrup and vice versa.
This lemonade is perfect for brunch but also great for cooling down guests on a hot summer day. A recipe to keep!
To finish, I present to you my slightly polished smoothie.
We pass 1 cup of a mixture of peaches / pineapple / mango frozen in the robot with 180 ml of Pinot gris Woodbridge by Robert Mondavi Wines. Then pour into our glasses and decorate with peaches and pineapple slices. Simple and divinely good!
Woodbridges wines by Robert Mondavi
I’m a big fan of white wine and I discovered with my culinary tests that there really is a Woodbridge white wine for everyone – Pinot Grigio with a lively and refreshing taste, Fruity and lively Sauvignon blanc or the White Zinfandel rather light and versatile. Try them all to find the one you like!
