Impress Friends this April with a Tasty, Boozy At-Home Brunch

Iced Amaretto Almond Coffee

Spring has arrived in earnest and two holidays synonymous with brunch—Easter and Mother’s Day—are just around the corner. Capture that springtime brunch buzz and impress friends by inviting them to an irresistible at-home gathering that happens to be on-trend.

Plan the menu with these recipes from Nielsen-Massey Vanillas. Whether throwing a dressed-up brunch or a pajama-friendly affair, everyone can enjoy these tasty, Instagram-worth dishes and drinks.

Plan to impress by planning ahead: The night before brunch, spend a little time prepping a sweet dish that will dazzle guests the next morning: Crème Brûlée French Toast. With its creamy, mellow flavor, Madagascar Bourbon Pure Vanilla Extract perfectly accents the other ingredients in the custard, taking this creative twist on a breakfast classic to the next level. Before everyone arrives, just pop it in the oven for 40 minutes. Why not also make some Sunrise Zucchini Bran Muffins with Madagascan Honey or Moist Coffee Cake Muffins? Guests will snap them up and leftovers will make a quick and easy weekday breakfast.

A savory addition: Let’s face it, most people find themselves waking up early on the weekends, if only because they forgot to shut off their weekday alarm. Get out of bed, but only for 20 minutes, to prepare a Slow Cooker Ham and Cheese Strata. Brighten up the salty flavors of the ham and cheese by adding a hint of Pure Lemon Extract. Put it in the crockpot and curl back up under the covers. When guests arrive later, this savory brunch dish will beckon.

Something extra in your coffee: Kick the meal off right with Iced Amaretto Almond Coffee, recipe below. Embrace the weekend by putting morning coffee on ice and giving it a boost with Pure Almond Extract and splash of Amaretto. Check out this video from our Facebook page to see the process.
