It's 11 A.M. Somewhere: The 7 Prettiest Brunch Cocktails for Summer

Brunching on the weekends has practically become its own sport. We’ve already made a strong case for skipping the frenetic insanity that is the trendy hot-spot breakfast queue in favor of an at-home breakfast in bed. If you’re of a like mind, and culinary DIYs on a Saturday are squarely in your wheelhouse, we’re here to up the ante with some next-level cocktail pairings. 

If you’re not into executing a full-blown spread, feel free to Postmates over the meal and hone your attention on the proper libations. We’re not knocking mimosas. They’re welcome at our breakfast table forever and always (especially these beyond-OJ mimosa recipes). Nevertheless, at times the cessation of demands from the workweek often calls for unwinding with an adventurer’s spirit. If you’re in the mood to shake things up, we’ve assembled a list of our very favorite (and utterly Instagram-worthy) cocktails that are sure to get you out of bed. Earl tea infusions. Prosecco pairings. Seasonal-fruit embellishments. The gang’s all here. Get ready to hit snooze and say cheers.
