Who doesn’t love brunch! And more importantly who doesn’t love brunch cocktails? It is the perfect meal in my opinion, you can order a breakfast dish or a lunch dish, it’s acceptable to order a cocktail at 10am, and it’s a great excuse to gather with friends.

Well if you are a fan of brunch like I am you’ll be happy to know April is National Brunch Month (who knew?) and I will certainly be celebrating.

I like brunch so much, this year I am shifting away from Easter dinner and hosting Easter brunch for my family which of course will include a mimosa and bloody Mary bar, plus one or two of these brunch cocktails.

Thanks to our friends at Cantera Negra Tequila, Bib & Tucker Small Batch Bourbon and Gray Whale Gin, for sending us recipes for the perfect brunch cocktails.
