Ideas for Your Easter Brunch Every Bunny Will Love

Oh friends!  We have been buuuuusy this week.  It is amazing that we even have time to get this post written and sent off.  Soccer has been ruling our lives this week with games rearranged because of storms, games in the wind, driving back and forth!  But it is Easter weekend and we have several items on The Blind Pig that would be perfect for your holiday breakfast or brunch.

Day DrinkingWe shared this drink with you last week. It is made with Carpano Bianco and grapefruit soda.  It is low in alcohol content and would be a great addition to an Easter brunch.

Cucumber Gin SpritzThis cocktail is also light and would be a refreshing addition to any morning gathering.

Gold Medal Coffee

Of course this would be perfect for the coffee drinkers in your entourage.

Mateo’s Bloody MaryThis easy to make Bloody Mary compliments nicely with bacon and egg dishes.

Rosa SpritzAny spritz is a winner for brunch in our book.

Christmas Morning BreadAlthough we showed you this bread at Christmas, it would make a delicious choice for Easter, as well.

Kerrygold Cinnamon RollsThese rolls are a little time consuming, but well worth the effort.

Kerrygold French ToastYummo!  Enough said.

Wow WafflesWe shared these delightful fluffy waffles with you a few posts back.  Remember, you can also use this recipe for pancakes!

We wish you and your family the best this Easter.  We have some other great posts to share with you in the next few weeks!

A Spritz of Spring

cucumber gin spritz

Hello friends!  We are enjoying Spring in full bloom.  Our flowers are blooming, the lawn is turning green, and our trees have bright  leaves and buds.  We know that some of our readers in the Midwest are longing for Spring, but they are still dealing with Winter.  This week’s light and fresh beverage will have you feeling like it’s Spring in no time.

You may notice that we are introducing a new spirit into our Blind Pig repertoire.  Our newest member is Malfy Gin.  This yummy spirit comes to us via the Amalfi Coast in Italy.  Malfy Gin is one of the only true Italian gins. Although most people think gin originated in England, its true beginnings were in Italy.  The Amalfi Coast is one our favorite spots to visit in the whole world.  We stayed in the village of Sorrento in an refurbished castle.  We had the most amazing pizza in Sorrento in a little outdoor cafe.  Our photos were from the pre-digitized photo generation, so we found this photo to help get you in the mood.

The Cucumber Gin Spritz is a light, refreshing drink made with Malfy gin, prosecco and club soda.  The added crisp freshness of muddled cucumber and a cucumber ribbon around the circumference of the glass gives the drink a cooling and energizing zip.

 

Although the Cucumber Gin Spritz takes a little more effort than many of our other recipes, there is no need to worry. It’s not too difficult.

To start, cut 5 round slices from the cucumber to muddle in your shaker.  Shave a long thin ribbon of the cucumber to save as a garnish for later.

If you don’t have any simple syrup on hand, you will want to make some of your own.  We gave you some recipes for simple syrup in our Mojito post.

After muddling the cucumber, add 1 ounce of gin, 1/2 simple syrup and ice to the shaker.  Shake.  Strain the mixture into a serving glass. We used our bar strainer, but you may want to use a strainer with a thinner mesh.

Top off with about 4 ounces of Prosecco and add a splash of club soda. Ahhhhhh!  So tasty!  So easy! So fresh!
