A Mimosa and a delicious Brunch go together just like milk and cookies. Brunch is a fun way to join friends together, spend special time with family, or to share a meal with a special friend – and it does not have to be an evening occasion!
Brunch is a combination of breakfast and lunch very common in the United States and Canada. The term “Brunch” was first introduced in Great Britain by newspaper reporters, because they headed to work early in the morning, prior to breakfast time. They were hungry and ate a meal prior to the normal lunch time, thus the name “brunch”.
Brunch is typically eaten in the late mornings between 11 am and 1 pm, close to lunch time but still before lunch. I think the picture above is my favorite brunch item – Eggs Benedict along with fresh fruit!
Brunches were made well-known to the world as they were served in many restaurants and resorts on Sundays and holidays. Many brunches are in buffet style and others have menu ordered meals.
The meal usually offers breakfast foods such as eggs, sausages, bacon, ham, fruits, pastries, pancakes and waffles. Depending upon where this meal is served, you may have the opportunity to order and enjoy quiche, large roasts of meat or poultry, cold seafood like shrimp and smoked fish, salads, soups, vegetable dishes, many types of bread, and a huge array of desserts. Mimosas are popular brunch cocktails. Have you tried one lately with your brunch?
A Mimosa is a cocktail-like drink composed of one part champagne (or other sparkling wine) and one part thoroughly chilled orange juice. It is traditionally served in a tall champagne flute with a morning meal or a brunch. Try it, you’ll really like it!
3/4 cup champagne, chilled
1/4 cup orange juice
Mix three parts of champagne or another of your favorite sparkling white wines to one part of your favorite orange juice.
