So who loves brunch?

If you asked that question in a crowd, I'd be one of the ones with my hand raised, for sure.  

In fact, brunch may just be one of my favorite meals.  I love that when it comes to what's considered a brunch dish, it's pretty much anything goes.  Whether that be a hearty Sausage, Egg & Hash Brown Breakfast Casserole, decadent Praline French Toast, or something a little more refined like a Pesto Tortellini Salad with Asparagus - they'd all be totally fine showing up on a brunch menu.

Another thing I love about brunch?  It's totally fine to enjoy a brunch beverage or two, too!  I mean, what's more classicly brunchy than a Mimosa, right?

A Royal Mimosa includes the basic Mimosa mix of freshly squeezed orange juice and champagne, but then it also has Grand Marnier and brandy mixed in, too.

Yes, that standard mix of orange juice and champagne is pretty much a brunch menu staple.

But there's another way to enjoy that brunch Mimosa - by kicking it up a notch with an extra splash of booziness, and turning it into a Royal Mimosa.

So, just what makes a Mimosa a Royal Mimosa?

A Royal Mimosa includes the basic Mimosa mix of freshly squeezed orange juice and champagne, but then it also has Grand Marnier and brandy mixed in, too - which amp up the flavor and richness of this classic drink.

Fortunately, a Royal Mimosa is just as easy to make as a regular one.

Simply pour a little Grand Marnier orange liqueur, brandy, and freshly squeezed orange juice into a champagne flute.  And then top the mixture off with some chilled champagne or other sparkling wine.

Add an orange slice for garnish if you'd like, and you're good to go.
