Bloody Mary. Mimosa. Bellini. What do all of these things have in common (besides being delicious)? They are perfectly acceptable to drink at breakfast time! And since we are firm believers that a Sunday brunch is not complete without a brunch cocktail, we decided to work up and sweet and savory cocktail that is perfect to add into your mid-morning breakfast rotation.
You know how in movies about the 1920s everyone seems to be fabulously dressed and drinking deliciously tantalizing champagne cocktails out of sparkling coupe glasses? Now that we have said that, do you also want to be fabulously dressed and drinking a deliciously tantalizing champagne cocktail out of a sparkling coupe glass?
Well then dust off your Great Gatsby-est attire and get ready for a 20s-inspired drink that will blow your minds!
This week’s Monday Funday drink, Diane’s Strawberry Cheesecake, inspired us to take some of the same flavors, streamline them, and see if something good came out of it. And guess what? Something great did!
This is a very, very special Monday here at The Woman At The Bar, because today’s drink was created specifically for one you!
Diane, one of our wonderful readers, threw down the gauntlet and challenged us to create a drink inspired by her favorite dessert, strawberry cheesecake, and we are not ones to ever turn away from a challenge–so create we did!
This is the first of what we hope to be many drinks created with your input, so if you have a drink challenge for us, no matter how pie (or cheesecake!) in the sky it may seem, send it to our way and we will put on our mad scientist caps and get to inventing!
But for now, we hope that you all (but especially Diane) enjoy Diane’s Strawberry Cheesecake!
Welcome back to yet another Monday Funday here at The Woman At The Bar!
If you can believe it (we know we can’t), we are actually headed down the latter half of summer already. Time, my dears, oh how it flies. So to commemorate this very special time of year–and to momentarily shut our ears and eyes agains the fact that it will soon come to a close–we created a delicious and light summer cocktail, perfect for drinking as the sun sets on a warm day.
A few things up front: yes, we know the World Cup is over and that we should have posted this cocktail last week, and no we do not know anything about soccer or whether Italy or Mexico even played in the World Cup — but what we DO know is that this quickie cocktail is delicious, and really, that is what matters!
