Brunch is a time-honored tradition and a must for summer weekends. Who are we to thank this laid-back bonus meal that defies the rules established by the traditional three-times-daily meal plan?
Some claim brunch emerged as a leisurely privilege for wealthy Brits during the turn of the 19th/20th century and point to Guy Beringer’s 1895 essay “Brunch: A Plea,” in which he argued, “By eliminating the need to get up early on Sunday, brunch would make life brighter for Saturday-night carousers.” Others link brunch’s success in the US to the similarly timed introduction of Eggs Benedict in Manhattan.
Brunch is now a favorite meal that pairs well with a variety of occasions that include Mother’s Day celebrations, weddings, baby showers, birthdays and romantic weekend getaways. Summer, the season of extended vacations, trips to the beach and sunshine-filled days, offers the ideal months for this supplemental sit-down.
Typically, the brunch cocktail of choice has been the Mimosa, Bloody Mary or Bellini. To spice things up, X-Rated Fusion Liqueur, a pink, exotic fusion of ultra-premium French vodka and vibrant blood oranges, mingling with the juices of ripe mangoes and luscious passion fruit. Liven up your summer brunch with a few of the X-Rated Fusion Liqueur cocktails below to help keep it the light-hearted, leisurely privilege it was designed to be.
