3 Brunch cocktails that are better than a Mimosa


Step up your weekend day-drinking rituals with 3 cocktails that are better than the ordinary Mimosa.

Brunch cocktails don’t have to be sub-far. There is actually a great history of morning pick-me-ups in the cocktail canon, as well as some anytime sippers that work just as well at 11am as 11pm. These drinks are worth returning to over and over again — even if your “eggs benny” is not.

Tom Collins

Essentially a grown-up version of lemonade, this drink simply consists of gin, carbonated water, sugar, and lemon juice, sometimes with a maraschino cherry dropped in for fun. It’s refreshing and bubbly, without any cheap champagne in sight.

Sherry Cobbler

This classic American cocktail is in the midst of a bit of a revival. As far as simple brunch drinks go, this mix of sherry, simple syrup, and ice with an orange slice for garnish is about as delicious as it can get.

Irish Coffee

If you can’t decide between coffee or a cocktail at brunch, this is the drink for you. Made with strong hot coffee, whiskey, sugar, and topped with a layer of cream, this classic eye-opener is perfect for brunching with a slight hangover, especially in the colder months.
