I am so excited to be a part of this year’s Brunch Week! There are so many great recipes this week which would be perfect for Mother’s Day brunch or any brunch throughout the year. In case that isn’t incentive enough to stick around all week, how about all the amazing giveaways that are up for grabs? Check out all the details and enter the giveaways HERE.

Today is not only the beginning of Brunch Week but also Cinco de Mayo! This combination lead to the decision to make an alcoholic beverage with orange juice to cover breakfast and tequila for the Mexican flair. Obviously I am talking about a tequila sunrise, but instead of using grenadine I mashed up some fresh raspberries using my OXO muddler which created red portion of the sunrise. Brunch just got a whole lot sweeter! And although this recipe is written for one drink, I trust that even when tipsy you will be able to do the math to mix up multiples if necessary.
