Updated 09/08/19

If you're looking to up your at-home brunch game beyond the simple pancakes-and-mimosas routine, we've got a few fresh ideas. Seeing as eggs are already a staple of many a breakfast spread, egg white cocktails are an easy upgrade to execute with ingredients already-on-hand. From flips to fizzes, the rich, velvety texture of lovely egg white-based libations are a decadent treat befitting any morning indulgence. We've assembled a list of our favorite recipes to shake things up in the morning cocktail department.

We can personally assure you these inventive and delicious concoctions taste every bit as good as they look. Egg white cocktails tend to require a bit more finesse and prep time than your average brunch drink set, but we promise the extra effort is well worth it.
