A morning cocktail can be a lovely way to celebrate a special occasion, or just breakfast. It also can be a really good way to escape the monotony of staying home. Bartenders have all sorts of tips and tricks when it comes to making morning drinks. Here at Lyre’s, we wanted to share some insider secrets for ways to make classic breakfast cocktails at home.
One of the most important things to remember about brunch is that people are not going to be having just one item. People are going to be having a morning cup of tea or coffee and probably a glass of water as well. That being said, these classic drink styles have stood the test of time.
The easiest way to make memorable brunch cocktails is to juice fresh citrus. Fresh orange or grapefruit juice tastes completely different than store-bought. It's worth the investment in time.
