Toasting The End Of #BrunchWeek With A Prosecco Mojito

Welcome to the second annual Brunch Week hosted by Terri of Love and Confections and Susan of The Girl In The Little Red Kitchen! Join us May 5th through 10th while we celebrate the deliciousness of brunch and to prepare for Mother’s Day and summer brunching season. We have 32 bloggers bringing you their best brunch game, from cocktails to eggs benedict to donuts, there is something for everyone this week. Our amazing sponsors have donated some great prizes for a gigantic giveaway, so make sure to enter!

It’s hard to believe that it’s the end of another Brunch Week – first of all, many thanks to Terri and Susan for organizing everything and a another round of thanks to some of the best bloggers out there who participated.  I was so thrilled to discover new blogs as well as work with blogs that I have enjoyed for some time.  I always say that the food blogging community is an amazing one – full of talented people with hearts of gold and a common love of food and I’m honored to have been included in this year’s Brunch Week fun.  So – with that – let’s raise our glasses and toast the organizers who kept our rowdy bunch in line, were there with recipe advice, inspiration and encouragement and, I need to say this – if these two ladies ran the world, I’d be cool with that – they are that awesome!

One important thing to any brunch is a fabulous brunch cocktail and as many of us are headed to all points Miami next week for Blogher Food, a mojito had to be made.   I have been wanting to play with a champagne type mojito for a while and, after a couple tries, this Prosecco Mojito is a tried and true.  It’s refreshing and full of classic mojito flavors but with a bit of a twist.  There’s something magical about the combination of lime and mint that brings memories of warm beaches, fun times and friends.  Add to that the familiar *pop* of the prosecco bottle, and you know a party is in the making!

When you want to make a brunch cocktail that will wow the crowds – this is the winner!
