Best Brunch Cocktail Recipes: 10 Ideas 

If you and your guests like to celebrate like we do, there are definitely cocktails involved. Brunch is the perfect place to practice your mixologist skills with some fun new recipes. If you are on the hunt for new and delicious brunch cocktail recipes, we’ve got you covered. 

Whether you like a fruity cocktail or something stronger in the morning, we’ve got all the best recipes for you and your brunch gang. 

1. Classic Mimosa

One of the easiest, most accessible cocktails you can make is a mimosa. All you need is Champagne or sparkling wine and a juice of choice. Orange juice is usually used, but don’t be afraid to switch it up with a different kind of juice for the sake of creativity.

Of course, if you don’t feel like crafting your own, enjoy a can or two of our delicious Classic Mimosas. 

2. Bellini 

If you are looking for more on the delicate side, we recommend a peach bellini. Bellinis are made with peach puree and Prosecco. Once again, if bartending seems like just another thing on your plate, stock up on our Classic Bellinis

3. Bloody Mary

One of the most classic brunchtime cocktails is a Bloody Mary. It’s the perfect savory breakfast cocktail for any occasion. Most brunch cocktails are made with sweet flavors, but the Bloody Mary is not. If you are looking for a spicy and savory brunch cocktail, look no further. 

4. Tequila Sunrise 

Rise and Shine! This cocktail is sure to wake you up. 

The main difference between a tequila sunrise and a mimosa is that instead of sparkling wine, this cocktail uses tequila. It definitely packs a punch early in the morning, but it’s totally worth it. 

5. Rosemary Gin Fizz 

If you are looking for an herbal morning brew, look no further than a rosemary gin fizz. All you need is a rosemary simple syrup, lemon juice, and gin to get this cocktail going. It’s refreshing, fizzy, and perfect for brunch. 

6. Sangria Lemonade 

You can enjoy this combination of two fun summery drinks year-round. One of the best parts about this sangria lemonade is that you can easily make it all in one pitcher. It has Chardonnay, lemonade, and a splash of rum. 

7. Sweet Tea Sangria 

If you are searching for a Southern spin on a brunchtime classic, you need to make this sweet tea sangria. All you need to craft this sweet tea sangria is sweet tea and prosecco. 

8. Beermosas 

It’s exactly what it sounds like… and it is surprisingly delicious. Believe it or not, beer and OJ is a winning combo. All you need to make a beermosa is your favorite beer and orange juice. Pour your beer into your favorite glass and top it with some fresh-squeezed orange juice. It’s simple and tasty, perfect for brunch. 

9. Java Float 

Nothing better than coffee and booze. If you are looking for a chocolatey way to kick off your morning, java floats are a sweet way to start off brunch. Java floats are a fun spin on a morning cup of joe. Besides, who doesn’t love coffee and alcohol mixed together? It’s a match made in heaven. 

10. Ohza Mimosas

Don’t feel like making cocktails from scratch but still want your brunch booze? That’s where we come in.

These sweet treats are a great breakfast option if you want something that your brunch-goers can grab and go. Muffins come in a variety of different flavors and are fairly easy to make in large quantities.

3. Quiche 

Quiche is a delicious breakfast option that can be customizable, like a casserole. Pack lots of different flavors and textures into this dish. Try adding tomatoes, your favorite mushroom, and any other vegetables that strike your fancy, and be sure to serve with a green salad.

Quiche is also great when you need to feed a crowd, and the buttery combination of the crust with the silky egg is sure to please.

5. Oatmeal

Oatmeal is a surprisingly versatile breakfast food. It’s easy to make in big batches and can be savory or sweet, depending on your preferences. A bowl of oatmeal is also packed with fiber and antioxidants to get your day started. You can top it with berries and other fresh fruit, add nuts like pecans, or drizzle on a little honey. 

Baked oatmeal can also be made ahead of time and baked in the morning if you are trying to save some time and energy. 

Savory Option: Cheesy Oatmeal with Potatoes and Pesto 

Sweet Option: Black Forest Oatmeal 

6. Salad 

If you are trying to lean more towards lunch, salad may be the way to go.
