One of the toughest things about social distancing is missing out on all the ordinary opportunities to grab a meal with friends and family. Meeting up for an easygoing weekend brunch with a group of your closest pals is something we’ve given up for a while, and many of us are grieving the fact that we can’t unwind with some good conversation, a plate of Belgian waffles and a boozy brunch cocktail.
But there is some good news: If you’re longing to re-create the magical buzz of a bottomless boozy brunch at home, you can purchase a handy tool that ensures your mimosas will keep flowing — no matter where you’re drinking them.
Check out this bottomless mimosa glass, a container shaped like a Champagne bottle topped with a glass flute, which holds a whopping 940 milliliters of liquid (or almost 32 ounces). Simply mix up 940 milliliters worth of mimosas, pour it into the bottle and sip your way through eight glasses (4 ounces each) worth of brunch cocktail.
Designed and manufactured by BigMouth Inc., these bottles are currently available on Amazon for around $13 plus shipping, which is just a little more than one brunch drink would run you at a nice café. The product is also available at Walmart, QVC and other retailers.
As for what to eat to soak up all that sparkling wine and orange juice, try your hand at a batch of cinnamon roll waffles, made with Pillsbury cinnamon roll dough. You simply cook up the waffles in a waffle maker using the pre-made cinnamon roll dough, and then drizzle them with a decadent cream cheese glaze.
Once again using a Pillsbury product, nab a tube of the brand’s French bread dough and roll it in everything bagel seasoning before popping it into a bundt tin and baking it into a gigantic “bagel,” which can then be used for putting together a breakfast sandwich to feed a small army.
And if you’re just looking to pour a bowl of some fun breakfast cereal to accompany your eight mimosas, check out the recent trend of cookies-for-breakfast with this recipe for homemade mini chocolate chip cookie cereal.
Or order a box of Funfetti cereal when it hits stores later this summer for a little birthday celebration vibe.
Bottom line: Brunch doesn’t have to disappear just because we’re doing it at home every weekend. Enjoy!
