Summertime Brunch Cocktails

Fresh, fizzy concoctions for languid, lazy days.

The Blooming Fizz cocktail.

Among the many reasons to love brunch are the cocktails: Bloody Mary’s, Mimosas and other fun, refreshing concoctions typically not found on evening drinks menus.

And while the midday breakfast is perennially popular, there’s something so special about summertime brunch, when cafe tables spill out onto sidewalks and the sunny, languid days pair perfectly with ice-cold drinks, like the Blooming Fizz and Cherry Chiller listed below. Created by Kim Haasarud of the beverage consultancy Liquid Architecture for Moët & Chandon Champagne, these cocktails are fruity, fizzy and well-suited for anyone planning an at-home summertime brunch soiree.

We invite you to find inspiration in the brunch cocktail recipes below and create your own delicious concoctions:
