The joke with all of my friends is that we deserve champagne on the first day of school to celebrate surviving the summer. That joke got me to thinking, mimosas perhaps? What about swapping the champagne for prosecco and diluting it a bit. And making it peachy! So I came up with these great cocktails for a mom’s morning celebration, whether it’s the first day of school or just a regular Wednesday.
Both drinks call for peach liqueur or schnapps. I filled champagne flutes with 2 fingers of peach schnapps. Then I filled them 3/4 full with prosecco. One I topped off with orange juice and the other with cranberry juice. Super simple and sparkly. And they would pair perfectly with any form of brunch food.
The orange juice drink I have playfully named the Peachy Sunrise and the cranberry cocktail is the Perfect Lady. Because what lady doesn’t drink something pink and bubbly? I hope you all and your mommy friends enjoy your first mom’s morning without kids at home. Or really any morning, for that matter!
