We can’t think of anything better than a relaxed weekend meal, but it’s important to stay sharp — so why not spritz up your at-home brunch game this summer? Whether you’re expecting company or just want some delicious grub, the Reunion team has collected a few brunch pairings your family can make and eat at home. Read on for recipes to try — and suggested drinks to accompany them.
Scrambled Eggs and Mimosas
This iconic duo tempers the richness of hearty eggs with the refreshing tang of citrus and prosecco (or champagne). Fill champagne flutes halfway with your chilled bubbly beverage of choice, and allow the bubbles to settle before topping each glass with orange juice. Entertaining a crowd? Make a mimosa pitcher so everyone can get in on the sharing!
You’ll need butter and whole milk to achieve a fluffy texture for your sumptuous scrambled eggs. Add six eggs, a dash of milk, and salt and pepper to a mixing bowl; whisk to combine. In a large nonstick skillet, melt two tablespoons of butter on medium heat. Pour the egg mixture into the pan and immediately begin pulling the edges toward the center using a spatula. Continue repeating this technique until mostly cooked, then switch off the burner and cover. Serve in your dining room while still hot with mimosas and good company!
Blueberry Pancakes and Negronis
The bitter kick of negronis will enhance the soft sweetness of these blueberry pancakes. To make the pancakes, sift together one cup of flour with baking powder, baking soda, and two tablespoons of sugar. Mix one egg, two tablespoons of butter, ¾ cup of milk, and two tablespoons of vinegar into your dry ingredients. Ladle your batter onto a greased griddle on medium-high, leaving space between each pancake. When the tops begin to bubble, add a few blueberries and then flip to finish cooking!
To make negronis you need gin, Campari, and sweet vermouth. Put equal amounts of each ingredient into an ice-filled shaker and shake well for a minute or so before straining into chilled tumblers. Take them out to your patio to enjoy along with your decadent syrup-topped blueberry pancakes.
