Mother’s Day Brunch: Grapefruit Spritz

mother's day brunch3Hi friends!  It seems like we were just with you since we wrote the April Bonus post just a few short days ago.  What did you think about the Templeton Whiskey Cake?

Mother’s Day is just a couple of weeks away which got us thinking about the perfect Mother’s Day Brunch.  Mimosas came to mind.  Don’t get us wrong, Rhonda loves a good mimosa, but they seem a little ordinary.  We are excited to share a new beverage recipe with you this week. Rhonda is kind of on a spritz kick right now. She had a delicious spritz in England when she went to visit Blind Piglet #1.  Then she came home and made The Cucumber Gin Spritz.  We had some of Seagram’s new Grapefruit Vodka in the house.  We were playing around with different recipes we could try with this citrusy liquor, and the Grapefruit Spritz was born.

Now that you know the backstory, let’s get to the details.  We hear you already.  Not a grapefruit fan?  Is it the crazy cousin in the beloved citrus family?  No worries.  We aren’t huge grapefruit people either.  However, Seagram’s Grapefruit Vodka has just enough citrus taste to give this drink a light citrus flavor without overpowering the drink.  We pinky promise.

This beverage hits the mark for easy, tasty and fresh.  The recipe is soooo easy that you will feel guilty when your mother brags on what a great job you did serving her Mother’s Day brunch. Of course the drink is tasty, we already told you that.  Fresh?  The citrus punch of the grapefruit coupled with an easy garnish of fresh grapefruit has fresh written all over it!

We (Rhonda) served the Mother’s Day Brunch with a Zucchini Onion Frittata recipe she clipped from Southern Living years ago. (It’s a winner.) Frittata only sounds complicated.  Don’t forget that Kerrygold French Toast  or Kerrygold Cinnamon Rolls are also easy, tasty, fresh brunch recipes that will please and impress mothers from near and far.

Now your special brunch for the mothers in your life is covered. You are ready to impress and tell your mother/wife/Godmother how much she means to you.
