Apple Brunch Punch

Please share

Move over mimosas, brunch has a new drink! Apples, bourbon and prosecco team up for a refreshing breakfast drink.

A good adult brunch requires a good drink.  Of course the thing that immediately comes to mind is a mimosa.

Don’t get me wrong, I love a good mimosa but I feel like you all know how to do that already.  So I thought it would be fun to give you another option.

That is when it struck me!  Why not do an apple version instead?

 In fact, the idea of using apples with Prosecco or any sparkling wine for that matter seemed perfect.  Using apple juice instead of orange juice makes the drink feel lighter, brighter and not quite so heavy.

Apples and bourbon seem to pair so well together, so I thought it would be fun to throw a little of that in there too.  You know, for good measure and whatnot.  Then to top it all off I grated an apple as finely as I could to give it that fresh and fancy feel.

If you are in the mood for a different adult drink, try making peach blueberry wine slushies. They are refreshing, fruity, and really tasty.

For a family friendly drink, try making coconut cream pie Italian sodas. Or whip up a batch of slushy peach punch.

Grated apple in a drink - now that's an idea! Sounds like the perfect drink to toast with at my brother-in-law's rehearsal this fall.

The hubby would die for this! You know, anything with bourbon LOL. Once I decide which of your brunch dishes to make first, I'll serve this with it! :-)

Hi Carlee, when I see drinks like this I really wish I enjoyed the taste of alcohol, but other than the odd glass of sweet red wine or fruity cider when the mood takes me I really don't enjoy it. It does look good though and I will pin for future reference, 'cos you never know!

I really don't drink often either. It just isn't "my thing." But I do enjoy trying a drink like this every once in a while! Thanks, Debbie!
