I still don't know what I want to be when I grow up, but I definitely think that I could make a living out of brunching. I think most people can agree that brunch is the best meal of the weekends and the biggest reason that some people get out of bed on Saturday and Sunday mornings. This past Saturday I hosted brunch for some of my friends to celebrate the weekend, good food, and a new brunch cocktail- the Aperol Spritz.
Along with the Aperol Spritz's I served some of my favorite brunch items - strawberry scones, quiche, and homemade granola with yogurt. I loved spending the morning preparing all this food, especially when later I was then able to sit down with my friends, a plate full of food, surrounded by friends, and a cool drink in my hand.
I will be sharing my brunch recipes later this week but today I wanted to spotlight our morning cocktail. I had never tried Aperol before, but my sister introduced me and told me about the Aperol Spritz. I was looking forward to trying it and found that the bright orange drink was refreshing and bubbly and a great replacement for the standard mimosa and perfect for summer!
3 parts Prosecco
2 parts Aperol
1 dash soda
Ice and orange slice
Add ice and a slice of orange to a stemless wine glass, pour in prosecco, the Aperol, and finish with a dash of soda. Enjoy!
