3 Brunch Cocktails Worth Making At Home

3 Brunch Cocktails Worth Making At Home

Hello darlings,

As you know, I spend most of my weekend brunching, exploring my town and making little trips to the city to connect with some other bloggers. When I’m not busy doing blogger and brunch things, I love making cocktails at home. Some of my favorites include the mint julep, a spicy bloody and a spiked mimosa! So I decided to share with you 3 brunch cocktails that are worth making for when you’re at home. Whether your just hanging out with family or having friends over for a brunch feast, there’s a little something for everyone!

The Minty Julep


1 ounce of peppermint schnapps

2 cups of crushed ice

2 ounces of bourbon ( BSB by Heritage Distilling)

fresh mint sprig for garnish

Use a highball or julep glass. Add mint schnapps, crushed ice, bourbon and then a dash of water. Add more ice if needed to fill up cup. Stir and top with garnish. If you don’t like schnapps, you can go old school status and muddle the mint!

The Spicy Bloody


1/2 an ounce of vodka (Seasoned Vodka for Bloody Mary’s by Heritage Distilling)

3 ounces of tomato juice

1 juice of lemon

1/2 tsp Worcestershire sauce

5 drops of tabasco



1/4 tsp celery salt

1/2 a jalapeno

spicy bloody mary

You will need a high glass for this. Rub a lemon around the rim of the glass. You can add salt if you’d like. Add ice. Mix tomato juice, vodka, lemon juice, Worcestershire sauce, Tabasco, salt, pepper, celery salt, jalapeño slices and and pour in glass. You can use horseradish as well if you’d like. Add celery, lime and a jalapeño for garnish.

blood orange spiked mimosa

Blood Orange Spiked Mimosa


1 bottle of chilled prosecco

1 bottle of organic blood orange juice

1 bottle of blood orange vodka by Heritage Distilling

Fill half the flute with juice. Add one shot of blood orange vodka. Top with prosecco.


My personal favorite was the spicy Bloody Mary. If you’re feeling something light and refreshing a mint julep is perfect for summer. And of course you can’t ever go wrong with a classic. What are your favorite brunch cocktails? Which one would you try?

  • I don’t drink alcohol, but that doesn’t mean I don’t enjoy my drinks. I’m a huge fan of cocktails (or rather, mocktails) and the Spicy Mary sounded like something I would love as it’s both foody and really brunch friendly. A funny fact is that most people hate celery, but I enjoy chewing on the sticks, haha. Thanks for lovely drink tips for the summer!

  • These drinks look so refreshing! I love Bloody Mary’s (the spicier the better) and mimosas so the last two drinks I definitely will try. Sadly bourbon is just too strong for me. Hehe. Brunch cocktails are my favorite and I will definitely need to try these this summer. Thanks for sharing these cocktail recipes! xoxo, Christine

  • This cocktail looks so delicious! I need to try it! Since my sister brought a bottle of vodka and I didn’t know what to do with it!

  • I love all these cocktails. The mint julep sounds amazing and refreshing for summer and blood orange spiked mimosa is something I def have to try!! It is a great variation from the usual mimosa.

  • Wow this is amazing and super creative. I don’t often drink cocktails just because I don’t really enjoy the taste of alcohol. But I know people find them really refreshing and great for when getting together with some friends. I’ve tried the mint julips before and I have to say that it’s really tasty. The blood orange spiced mimosa also sounds interesting. I don’t necessarily like vodka but I would for sure try the spicy blood. You have some great recipes I’m sure some people will want to try.


  • These cocktails sound so yummy and simply perfect for summer! I definitely see myself trying out the mint julep! I’d have to try it this weekend. Brunch + cocktails sound divine 😀

I’m pretty indecisive in everything and I love that you’ve included drink that you’ve tried and you know they are so amazing!

  • I would love to try the mint julep, it sounds and looks so refreshing! Honestly bloody mimosas have never been my thing and even though i keep trying them I just don’t enjoy them even if I wish I did! A mimosa is always a classic, love to make a mimosa bar with different fruit infusions that you can use!


  • Ah i don’t drink alcohol too, but absolutely love cocktails. The mint one sounds refreshing..My fave is virgin mary- with a healthy dose of spice haha. Need to add Jalapeno..Will try your recipe for next time! 🙂

  • I only recently learned how much I love Bloody Maries when I tried one for the first time out of curiosity and loved it! Spicy drinks in themselves are also super yummy to me, so I am anxious to try that Spicy Bloody Mary recipe, along with the others 😉


  • Fab brunch post babe! Im hosting a brunch at my place next weekend so will definitely will be whipping up a fw of these spicy bloody mary’s for my guests. Thanks for the recipe babe and have a fab weekend. XOWP

  • I’ve never heard for any of these cocktails, but I must admit they all sounds amazing! The one I would make is the last one Blood Orange Spiked Mimosa, chilled proseco sounds sooo good! I’ve never heard or tried it, I hope I will find it somewhere in here.

    Thanks for sharing!
