With one of the longest winters behind us – finally – I’m craving some light and fruity flavours. And with the weekend a mere hours away, my mind’s on cocktails. If you read my post on creating an elegant and easy Parisian Brunch, you know that I owe you a cocktail for brunch. And have I got the perfect one! My Gin and Jam Fizz, is easy, fruity and perfect for brunch.
Long weekends are synonymous with cocktails around here, so with the Easter long weekend just days away you know I have a cocktail to help you celebrate and enjoy the extra time off with family and friends.
Since Easter celebrations often include brunch, you wouldn’t be wrong to expect a mimosa-esque cocktail, I do love mimosas made with Prosecco. But I thought I would shake things up and instead celebrate with the prettiest Raspberry Rose and Gin Cocktail. Simple ingredients and just a few steps, this cocktail has the potential to quickly become your go to when entertaining and brunching!
As I settle in to write this, I’ve just returned from taking my niece and nephew to see Santa, my second Molasses Spice Cake of the season is baking (the first one disappeared far too quickly!) and Elf is playing in the background. It is safe to say I am in Full. Holiday. Mode. And while I hadn’t planned on writing another post before the new year, I couldn’t let the season pass without sharing some holiday cheer. A Pomegranate, Pear and Prosecco Cocktail. So simple and full of bright, fruity flavours, it’s the perfect solution to the very cold and snowy conditions we’re experiencing in Calgary.
