Peachy Vodka Brunch Punch
My good friend Kristen says, “It’s just breakfast unless alcohol is served, then it’s brunch.” Staying true to this saying I would like to share with you my Peachy Brunch Punch.
I enjoy making a weekend brunch for my house guests. Since I live near the beach, when guests come to visit, they are usually on vacation. I tend to be an earlier riser, so that gives me time to concoct something tasty before they finally roll out of bed.
I also enjoy treating them to the local flavors of Brunswick County. This area offers some of the freshest peaches during the summer season, and I like to take advantage of them while they are at their peak flavor and juiciness. Peaches are a rich provider of vitamins A, C and E and offer a rich array of minerals including calcium, potassium, magnesium and iron. They are also low in calories, contain no saturated fat or cholesterol and are a good source of dietary fiber as well. I suppose that makes this a healthy brunch cocktail.
This recipe is similar to a Bellini but includes maple syrup and Tito’s vodka. The maple syrup adds a sweet note reminiscent to the first meal of the day, whereas a traditional Bellini uses sugar or simple syrup. I included Tito’s vodka to kick it up a notch but also because Tito’s vodka is my favorite liquor and is becoming very popular among vodka drinkers.
So the next time you find yourself hosting breakfast for friends or family, remember to serve some alcohol to make it a true brunch.
