Bottomless Brunch: 5 Frozen Concoctions to Complement Your Eggs
Brunch allows you to make heartier and more creative foods than a standard breakfast. It also doesn't carry the time-crunched stress that a workday morning does. But the best benefit of this hybrid meal is that it creates a fun, party-like mid-morning atmosphere to enjoy a few cocktails with your friends or family. Next time you make brunch, try one of these five delicious frozen concoctions along with your bacon and eggs.
1. Ice Cold Bloody Mary
Take a unique spin on this brunch staple by turning it into a frozen concoction. Mix a 3/4 of chopped cucumber, 3/4 of an ounce of lemon juice, 3 ounces of citrus vodka, 6 dashes of Tabasco sauce, 6 dashes of Worcestershire sauce, a pinch of salt, a pinch of cayenne pepper and a pinch of black ground pepper into the concoction maker's glass jar. Add ice, blend until smooth and enjoy. Feel free to use tomato juice as well!
2. Spicy Berry Beverage
If Bloody Marys aren't spicy enough for you, try the Spicy Berry Beverage by adding 3 ounces of tequila, 1 1/2 ounces of lime juice, 3/4 cup of blackberries, 6 teaspoons of agave nectar and 6 slices of jalapeno to the Frozen Concoction Maker®. Load it up with ice, blend and serve with blackberry garnishes.
3. Tequila Sunrise
Wake up to a tequila sunrise! Pour 10 ounces of tequila in the party machine's glass jar with 21.5 ounces of pulp-free orange juice and 2.25 ounces of grenadine. Add ice, concoct until it's thoroughly blended and serve in martini glasses.
4. Frozen Mimosa
Mimosas are likely the most popular brunch cocktail. Make a frozen version of this favorite by mixing 3 ounces pulp-free orange juice with 2 ounces of ruby red grapefruit juice, 1 scoop orange sorbet and 8 ounces champagne in your margarita machine. Pour in champagne flutes and garnish with orange slices for a good looking, delicious brunch beverage.
5. Rasp-peary Smoothie
Fruit is a big part of every brunch, but rather than having yours in a bowl try blending it into a tasty drink. To make the Rasp-peary Smoothie you'll want to pour 1 1/2 cup fresh pears, 1 1/2 ounces lemon juice, 6 ounces of raspberry sorbet and 9 ounces of apple juice into your frozen concoction maker with plenty of ice and blend until smooth. This is a fun option for kids or adults to feel like part of the party with their own non-alcoholic cocktail.
Remember to enjoy your beverages responsibly and follow all drinking laws - and don't forget to look out for your fellow Parrotheads too.
