A Casual Winter Brunch

The daylight hours are shorter at this time of year — and therefore all the more precious. Here’s a menu by recipe developer Eric Vellend for a savoury brunch that’s perfect for winter entertaining. More lunch than breakfast, it’s simultaneously hearty and sophisticated.

Brunch Cocktail

Of course a Mimosa is always welcome at brunch, but why not try something new? Look for a drink that goes easy on the alcohol and offers lots of fruity flavours… Just like The Matador!  

Pineapple and lime are delicious — but powerful! They call for a tequila of real character, and Don Julio Blanco delivers. Its very aromatic nose sings beautiful vegetal agave notes, backed up with lemon and black pepper, a spiciness that powers on through the long, long finish and juts out through the fruit juices.
