A Few Brunch Cocktail Essentials You Need To Know About


In the United States, one out of every ten restaurants serves Mexican food, definitively making it the most popular type of international cuisine in the country. We're proud of our food, but we know that one of the cornerstones of having the best brunch is cocktails.

The best brunch spots in Miami always take the time to create thoughtful cocktails to pair with brunch. It'd be impossible to name every single beverage out there, so we've opted for three classic favorites.

Let's kick this brunch off the right way.


Authentic Mexican restaurants worth their salt know that the Paloma -- not the Margarita -- is one of the most universally loved Mexican cocktails. We'd argue that the best brunch always starts with a Paloma. Tequila, freshly squeezed grapefruit juice, lime juice, and a little sugar. Shake. Strain over new ice. Top with club soda and voila. You can have the rim salted, sugared, or plain, that's a matter of personal preference.

Death In The Afternoon

Made famous by Ernest Hemingway, a notoriously enthusiastic drinker, this beverage isn't for the faint of heart. Death In The Afternoon is chilled absinthe, topped with champagne. Served in a champagne flute, it's an invigorating beverage, but certainly a slow sipper. Being incredibly potent, Hemingway's advice was to drink three to five of these slowly, but we're going to strongly urge against that. Sip with caution.

Aperol Spritz

Every cocktail list needs something lighter. Aperol is an Italian liqueur with a bright citrus flavor. It's low alcohol volume and tastes like a delightful mix of bitter and sweet citrus. Pour Aperol and Prosecco over ice in a wine glass. Add a little soda water on top and garnish with an orange slice. Delicious and far less potent than the previous options, the Aperol Spritz is wonderful for brunch cocktail pacing.

Feeling thirsty yet? Make sure to take the time to check out cocktail lists while you're at brunch. We probably didn't have to remind you. We're certain that when you booze your own adventure it's always prudent to have your wits about you. Clink and drink responsibly. Cheers
