Harvest Sunrise - Mountain Cravings

Harvest Sunrise

Harvest Sunrise

Today I’m sharing a bright, bubbly, celebratory brunch drink…

…because this morning, we closed on our first home!!

I’m over-the-moon excited and I wish I could cheers each and every single one of you through the screen! We’ve bought our very own miner’s cabin vintage 1900, surrounded by mountains, alongside a creek. It couldn’t possibly be more perfect for us and I can’t wait to share it with you soon.

In the meantime, let’s celebrate with a seriously great brunch cocktail! I’m definitely not breaking up with mimosas – never – but sometimes you want a drink with more body, more flavor, less carbonation.

Enter Harvest Sunrise! Wheaty from Belgian-style Blue Moon and packing a double-punch of orange liqueur and orange juice, it’s the grown-up, classier sister of ‘beermosas’. It’s a little heavier and slower-drinking than traditional mimosas, pairs really well with rich brunch dishes, and it transitions even better to lazy afternoons on the porch.

I love-love-love Grand Marnier but it’s a big splurge for us. While that deep, rich smoothness is really worth it here, Cointreau is your closest bet at a lower price. Avery White Rascal would also be a great wheat beer for this drink!
