What's in a champagne brunch menu?

Brunch is delicious as it is the perfect combination between salty and sweet cuisine. There is therefore always something to find for every taste.

Typically, you will find a variation of the salty dishes such as eggs, bacon and sausages in a brunch. From the sweet kitchen you will typically find croissants or other baked goods, yogurt or fresh fruit.

These are brunch classics for a reason, but that's why it can be delicious to try something new. Especially when you are invited to a champagne brunch, it gives you the opportunity to try some new dishes.

One idea could be to combine the brunch classics with some small, delicate portions that both taste delicious but also look beautiful.

Champagne brunch menu ideas

Small portions are both attractive and tasty. Here are some ideas for some little treats for your champagne brunch menu :

  • Canape with salmon and smoked cheese
  • Fresh asparagus rolled in bacon
  • Mini quiches
  • Mini spinach pie with feta
  • Smoothie Bowls
  • Greek yogurt or chia porridge with honey and fresh berries
  • Rhubarb trifle
  • Fruit salad (with seasonal fruits)

Inspiration for champagne cocktails for your champagne brunch

One must not forget the protagonist of this brunch - namely the champagne. A champagne obviously tastes great as it is, but there are a number of champagne-based cocktails that would be a perfect addition to any brunch.

There are many champagnes you can use in your cocktails - see our large selection of champagne here .

Mimosa

A mimosa is probably the most well-known champagne cocktail out there. A mimosa is a refreshing cocktail and is quite simple to make. It contains only two ingredients: champagne and orange juice. Orange juice is already a well-known brunch staple, which makes the mimosa the perfect champagne brunch cocktail.

Simply pour 1 part orange juice and 2 parts champagne into a tall champagne glass. It should preferably be served chilled.

Bellini

Bellini is another famous brunch cocktail consisting of champagne and peach. It can be made in two different ways, with peach puree or peach syrup.

Using syrup is probably the easiest and fastest way to make a bellini. Here, 1 part syrup is used for 2 parts champagne. The ingredients are poured into a cold champagne glass and stirred carefully so that the drink does not become flat.

The other way to make a bellini is with peach puree. For 6 glasses, you need:

  • 5 peaches
  • 75 cl of champagne

Blanch the peaches by placing them in a bowl of boiling water, then peel off the skin and slice the pulp. Blend the peach flesh until it is completely fine - mash it if necessary. through a sieve. Then put it in the fridge for approx. 1 hour until the puree is completely cold.

Pour a few spoonfuls of the puree into each glass and then top with cold champagne.

Kir Royale

Another delicious champagne-based cocktail is a Kir Royale. Like a mimosa and a bellini, it is also incredibly easy to make. A Kir Royale also consists of only two ingredients: champagne and blackcurrant liqueur.

You just need to pour 1 part blackcurrant liqueur to 5 parts champagne. Stir gently and serve cold. Depending on the season or your own personal preference, the blackcurrant liqueur can be replaced with, for example, a blackberry or raspberry liqueur. If you prefer fresh berries and fruits in your cocktail, you can also try your hand at a refreshing elderflower cocktail with fresh blackberries.
