Is it me or did this week fly by? It seems to have passed in the blink of an eye. I’m looking forward to spending time relaxing with family, celebrating a friend’s birthday, and Sunday brunch on the patio. Hopefully, I will get my wish…
Typically, I prepare old favourites and signature brunch cocktails, however, I’m going to try mixing it up this weekend. I’m not certain which brunch recipes I will make yet other than the French Breakfast Puffs and Rustic French Toast, those are pretty firm on the menu.
1 ounce London dry gin
1/2 ounce St-Germain elderflower liqueur
1 ounce fresh grapefruit juice
1/2 ounce fresh lemon juice
1 large basil leaf, for garnish
Fill a cocktail shaker with ice. Add all of the remaining ingredients except the garnish and shake well. Pour through a fine strainer into a chilled coupe and garnish with the basil leaf.
When thinking about brunch recipes, Blueberry Ricotta pancakes came to mind, I’m not sure why as I never thought about them before; however, once I began searching for recipes, this one was I knew had to be on the menu. Raspberry compote would be equally as good!
