Every Saturday and Sunday morning/afternoon diners flock to their favorite restaurants and cafes to enjoy the sunshine and a taste of their favorite brunch dishes. Brunch, which is a portmanteau word made from breakfast and lunch, first started in England in the early 19th century. It wasn't until the 1930's that the weekend phenomenon came over to America.
Today brunch is normally served with alcoholic beverages, making it totally acceptable to spend the morning day-drinking. While Bloody Marys and Bellinis are a breakfast favorite (and sometimes used as the hair of the dog) the real winner of brunch is the mimosa.
The Bottomless Mimosa
A mixture of champagne and orange juice, this concoction is a favorite to get a little tipsy while enjoying an Eggs Benedict. And when restaurants offer "bottomless mimosas," you can expect to spend a few hours with friends enjoying this sweet beverage.
Always Fits (the company that brought us Golden Girls Hot Sauce) has released their newest product and it's for brunch-lover's everywhere. The Personal Mimosa Glass. Shaped like a champagne bottle, this glass holds over 940 ml of the beverage-about 8 full-size mimosa glasses.
This is the perfect gag-gift for anyone who brunches (yes, using it as a verb), loves to call the day after Saturday, "Sunday Funday," knows the brunch menu by heart or just loves the thought of having a bottomless brunch. Simply add an equal measurement of champagne and OJ into the glass and sip throughout Sunday brunch.
We highly suggest buying one of these for your next boozy brunch and sharing the bottle among friends. You could even make your own brunch buffet at home serving up favorites like french toast and our very own Lemon Yogurt Parfait.
You won't need to wait in line for a brunch spot and it'll be fun to host your own Sunday Brunch.
