Brunch = Day Drinking
Though the case could be made for the summer season itself, Sunday Brunch is that catch-all that makes day drinking more acceptable.
Because we care about you, Intern Jimi and I* sampled a few of these for you.
Get thee to brunch at Greystone today, served Sundays from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.
Brunch Cocktails at Greystone
Blanco Tequila, Lime Juice, Agave Nectar, Brut Sparkling Wine ($7)
“Like a tequila spritzer”
Jimi’s thoughts: It looks almost too good to drink — almost. Think of this drink as a lighter twist on the classic margarita. The traditional ingredients of lime juice, Blanco tequila, and agave syrup are lightened by a refreshing splash of Brut Sparkling Wine.
Pepper Bloody Mary
Local Chili Infused Vodka, Crispy Smoked Bacon, Pickled Okra ($10)
“An upgraded classic”
Jimi’s thoughts: When I want a Bloody Mary, I want it to be spicy. The chili-infused vodka gives the classic brunch drink an even heat with every sip without overpowering the traditional savory Bloody Mary flavors. Don’t forget to snack on the pickled okra, olive, and thick bacon strip when you’re done. (Editor’s note: Or as you go.)
Coconut Water, Lime, Housemade Grenadine, Prosecco ($8)
“An easy ‘morning-after’ starter”
Jimi’s thoughts: Sweet, refreshing, and satisfying. A light, thirst-quenching drink that is full of flavor. The lime and coconut create a perfect balance of sweet and citrusy flavors, which are enhanced by the effervescent Prosecco. Perfect for a hot day on the patio.
Grapefruit Juice, Agave Syrup, Lime, Zucca, Ancho Reyes, Reposado Tequila ($12)
“All of my favorite things in one beautiful presentation”
Jimi’s thoughts: It’s a mixture of everything that Sara and I love in one drink: Grapefruit, tequila, chilis. The combination of the heat from the Ancho Reyes chilis along with grapefruit juice and tequila make for a smoky, lightly spicy, and delicious drink.
Strawberry Rhubarb Shandy
Rhubarb Syrup, Rhubarb Bitter, Strawberries, Witbier ($7)
Jimi’s thoughts: This is a drink for beer lovers who want to try out a cocktail. You get the all the sweet citrus you would expect from Boneshire Brew Works Tried & True witbier, plus an extra hint of flavor and sweetness from fresh strawberries. It’s a thirst quencher that goes down easy.
Sour Cherry-Yuzu Bellini
Sour Cherries, Yuzu Juice, Rotari Brut Sparking Wine ($9)
“Looks are deceiving — this is light and oh so dry.”
Jimi’s thoughts: (Ed. note: Jimi didn’t drink this because he’s allergic to cherries, and we didn’t want him to die) This may look like the sweetest juice you had from a box as a kid, but the housemade cherry-yuzu syrup adds the color and balanced sweet-sour flavor. Dry sparkling rosé adds the bubbles and dry finish.
