Boozy Lemonade Two Ways.

mikes hard lemonade brunch cocktail recipes 16

I mentioned it in Friday’s post, but this Fall weather has me in major nesting mode. I’ve been cleaning like crazy and opting to have friends over rather than go out. My favorite thing to do on a Fall weekend is to cook up a storm and have friends over for a casual boozy brunch. Brunch turns into afternoon cocktails and my friends end up staying all day.

Today (in partnership with Mike’s Hard Lemonade), I’m sharing two easy fall brunch lemonade cocktail recipes that I’m obsessing over right now. The first is an updated twist on the bellini (light + refreshing), and the second is a bit boozier (bourbon is involved). Both are absolutely delicious – and so easy to make… perfect for all of your Fall entertaining. And the fresh herbs will have your space smelling like the local farmer’s market.
