Let's celebrate Mom with a beautiful brunch fit for the queen that she is! Below are two recipes hand-picked by us to make a special brunch for your favorite person!

Drink Idea:

The Baby Bellini is the non-alcoholic version of the classic peach and Champagne cocktail from the 1930s called the Bellini. It is perfect for elegant entertaining and has the feel of a great Champagne Cocktail. The taste is close to that of the original but has none of the alcohol, so it's a win-win.

This sparkling peach drink is ideal for brunch and pairs perfectly with almost any food. It's the perfect fancy treat for Mother's Day, and she's sure to love it.

Ingredients

  • 2¬†ounces¬†peach nectar

  • 4 to 5¬†ounces¬†sparkling cider

  • Peach¬†slice, for optional garnish

Steps to Make It

  1. Gather the ingredients.

  2. Pour the peach nectar into a Champagne Flute.

  3. Slowly add the sparkling cider.

  4. Garnish with a peach slice. Serve and enjoy.

Peach nectar will add the most peach flavor. Look for peach nectar in the juice section of the grocery store. Nectar will be more concentrated than peach juice, but you can use peach juice if that is what is available.

Main Dish:

Portuguese style French toast, Rabanadas, are sweet toasts similar to French Toast, but so much better. They can be served on their own or with a drizzle of honey, but they are best served warm. 

Slice your bread the day before you plan to make your Rabanadas so they have a chance to dry out a bit. Alternatively, you can toast the slices in a 225¬į oven for 20 minutes.¬†
