Come Party With Me: New Year's Day Brunch — Drinks


After a long night of New Year's Eve parties, there is only one thing that will make guests feel better: Bloody Marys. Nothing beats the classic hangover drink's power to make a headache disappear. If there is leftover champagne, mix it with orange juice for mimosas. Have lots of sparkling and still water on hand, and make a refreshing nonalcoholic water cocktail with pineapple and rosemary. For these recipes,

I should have known this website would promote and glorify alcohol. That is just terrible. I would never drink alcohol, and neither would my husband. A grown adult should be well past the age where they want to use a mind-altering drug. It sets a terrible example when websites, publications, TV shows, etc. promote and glorify this toxic, mind-altering drug. And alcohol IS a drug. Ask any doctor! Just because its legal doesn't make it right. You wouldn't smoke pot, would you? Yet people think nothing of using a mind-altering drug in the form of alcohol. Pot smokers call booze-drinkers hypocrites, and they have a point! They are after the same psychoactive effect. And that is not a good thing to do! Also, alcohol is a TOXIN. It significantly raises the risk of breast cancer in women, poisons cells, has been linked to heart, brain and liver damage and more. But even if it were healthy, just the fact that alcohol is a mind-altering drug makes it wrong. It just really upsets me that there are sites like these which promote and glorify alcohol. We can hardly chastise our youth for underage drinking, when grown adults make alcohol look so fun, glamorous, romantic, sophisticated and fun. A grown adult should know better and not drink.

With bloody marys, you get your daily amount of veggies and your alcohol all in one.

That Pineapple Rosemary water looks good. It reminds me of Maui! I'd change the rosemary to mint though.

I used to serve a lot of Mimosa's at brunches held at the Country CLub I used to work at. Apparently, rich people can't wait past noon to get drunk.
