Welcome to the first day of Brunch Week!
I’ve joined up with some of the most amazing bloggers going this week to celebrate all things wonderful about one of my favourite things-brunch.
Christine from Cook the Story was kind enough to invite me and it has been a ball getting ready. I’ll introduce you to more of this great group tomorrow.
Can you really get better than a late, leisurely breakfast that encourages you to sit and chat and generally enjoy life?
Each day this week I’ll have a different treat that we’ve adopted as our top brunch picks.
Today at 2:00 we’re all have a tweet chat to tell you about a TONNES of prizes that are coming up.
You will want to win ANY of them. Actually I want to win ALL of them. However, even though bloggy love is universal this particular draw is only open to U.S. residents.

I thought I would start the week out with a bang after seeing this on Pinterest. Who’s to argue with that? How about I add some fruit into the mix to make things a bit healthier? Strawberries, honey and sherry blended up make for a pretty pink base. A couple of Napoleon Bee glasses with stripey straw and juicy garnish… Topped with sparkling, dry wine makes for a VERY cheerful way to start (or end) any day. Ok, maybe not a workday. Do yourself a favour and don’t waste the good stuff on this drink, the strawberries are the star. Now, enjoy your Sunday and have another bottle of bubbly at the ready-just in case. When you have a drink this pretty people tend to spontaneously show up. And they do disappear pretty quickly. And don’t forget that there are prizes galore!
- 2 cups fresh strawberries
- 2 T sherry
- 2 tsp honey
- 1 (or 2) bottles of dry sparkling wine
- strawberries for garnish
- In a blender, puree the first 3 ingredients. In a pretty flute pour 3 T of the mixture and then top with dry, sparkling wine.
