This post is sponsored in conjunction with #BrunchWeek. I received product to develop recipes. All opinions are mine alone.

     How are you guys enjoying #BrunchWeek so far? I am loving it! My must make list is growing by the minute.  We are having breakfast for dinner every day for the foreseeable future and then for a few more weeks after that!  As a kid, brunch meant one thing; belgian waffles.

   Of course they had to have strawberries and whipped cream on them too! We used to go to a brunch buffet at the country club up the street some Sunday mornings and that was a must have on those days.

   I would certainly not snub my nose at waffles with strawberries and whipped cream now either.  In fact I would very happily accept.  But as these things go, my brunch expectations have changed slightly.

   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! Rainier Fruit Company sent some delicious Lady Alice Apples.  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.

   This is a perfectly fresh and fun way to stay refreshed while eating a Parmesan Polenta Bowl for instance, or a fun savory waffle creation I have coming later this week.

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!
