A Fun Champagne Cocktail For Parties Or Brunch
Spring is a really busy time of year for my family, like a lot of families I know. Between both of the kids in baseball and soccer, school, work, birthdays and holidays…spring is like a blur to me.
So any short cuts we can take on dinner, drinks, entertaining – anything to make our lives easier we’re going to take it. This drink I made for Food Fanatic is the perfect example of taking a short cut but not cutting corners on taste.
We have so much going on that a lot of the time we combine parties together. My birthday is only a few days apart from my son’s birthday…and my mother in laws birthday and my anniversary. Throw in Mother’s Day and Father’s Day and other family members having birthdays and you won’t see us come up for air until July.
It’s all good stuff – don’t get my wrong, party after party. But combining them works out for us so that everyone with all their different schedules can be together.
How To Make These Champagne Cocktails Ahead Of Time
A great thing to do at these “combo” parties is to set up your bar ahead of time. That way you have out something for everyone and they can all help themselves. You as the host will be busy enough and you also want to be able to enjoy your own party.
In addition to your usual bar set up, it’s nice to have a signature cocktail also. Bellini bars are always a hit with my friends and family, whether it’s a brunch or an evening event. No one ever turns down a bellini – guys or girls.
This Jam Toast Cocktail is a twist on your usual bellini recipe. Instead of using fresh fruit purees you stir a spoonful of jam into your champagne. If it’s a brunch chances are your going to have a few different flavors of jam out anyway and if you buy the good stuff it’s all fruit so why not save yourself the step!
Just grab a few bottles of your favorite champagne or prosecco and set them out with some of your favorite jam flavors to stir in.
And don’t forget to have a toast! You can have toast, croissants, muffins and biscuits set out at your party or brunch, too for spreading the jam on!
Don’t forget to head over to Food Fanatic for this recipe and also tons more!
