I don’t know if you’ve heard, but BRUNCH is making a comeback! I love breakfast, but I rarely have time for anything more than toast or a glass of greens. (Sounds appetizing I know!) So I thought I would kick off the holiday season and throw together a quick brunch for some of my girlfriends before we are all super busy.
My house is in the process of getting decked out for Christmas, so I just started in the dining the room. It took me less than an hour to “decorate”. Some fresh greenery really makes a big impact.
The menu was equally as simple as the decor. I didn’t have a lot of time to make the food, so everything was either frozen, pre-made or fresh. Yep those are just frozen pancakes I heated up and added a few raspberries.
Rosemary is a great herb to have on hand this time of year. You can cook with it or use it in your decor.
I added little sprigs for rosemary to each place setting and had it as an optional garnish for the cocktails.
AND what is brunch without champagne, right?!?
Keeping with the “SIMPLE” theme, I made KORBEL Cocktails.
Cranberry Champagne Cocktail Recipe:
Fill 1/3 of a Champagne flute with white cranberry juice, top with KORBEL California Champagne and garnish with frozen cranberries.
All KORBEL California champagnes are made according to the traditional méthode champenoise, in which the champagne is fermented inside the same bottle from which it is served. The taste of the méthode champenoise style is famous for its delicate nuances and for producing the countless bubbles in every glass…because don’t we all love the bubbles!
For the cocktails I chose KORBEL Brut, but it goes great on it’s on with salty or creamy cheeses. If your guests want to just stick to champagne, try KORBEL Brut Rose or Sweet Rose. The Brut Rose is very versatile and pairs well with most foods. It has a slightly sweet flavor. The Sweet Rose is great to serve with desserts.
Which one would you choose for a KORBEL Brunch?!?
CHEERS to a great holiday season!!
