Besides delicious, brunch should be a few things: easy to make, fun for the whole family and stress-free. While we love a good Bloody Mary or sangria bar in the early afternoon, sometimes you just need a simple cocktail to wash down your pancakes. That's why we love this Pineapple 75, a light and fresh champagne cocktail, that's not-your-average-mimosa. The best part? It only requires 4 ingredients!
1/4 cup pineapple juice
2 tablespoons gin or vodka
Chilled sparkling wine
1 cup ice (freebie!)
In a cocktail shaker, shake ice, pineapple juice and gin until thoroughly mixed; strain into a Champagne flute. Top with sparkling wine. Using a vegetable peeler, cut a strip of lemon peel and curl over rim.
