Recipes: Ladies’ Brunch

Here are the recipes that I made for my ladies’ brunch! Enjoy and feel free to ask any questions!

Bloody Mary Mix

  • 3 tablespoons dijon mustard
  • 3 tablespoons worcestershire sauce
  • 2 tablespoons prepared horseradish
  • 2 tablespoons hot sauce (like Tabasco, Tapatio)
  • 2.5 ounces lemon juice (~2 lemons)
  • 1.5 ounceslime juice (~2 limes)
  • 2 tablespoons olive brine
  • 1 teaspoon celery seed
  • 2 teaspoons fresh ground black pepper
  • 2 teaspoons kosher or sea salt
  • 64 ounces tomato vegetable juice

Combine all ingredients together in a carafe or pitcher. Add vodka to each individual serving to keep mix fresh!

Fruit Purees for Bellini Bar

  • Fresh blueberries (I used organic)
  • Fresh raspberries (I used organic)
  • Fresh mango (I used organic)

In a blender, puree each fruit separately and strain through a fine sieve into separate containers. To make bellinis, pour a small amount of pureed fruit into the bottom of a champagne flute and top with champagne. I didn’t think that the fresh fruit needed any added sugar, but it is nice to have some simple syrup available if anyone wants a little added sweetness. Any fruit can be used for these! Get creative – strawberries, blackberries, etc.
