Brunch with Barefoot Bubbly

Easter is tomorrow and like many, I am in a last minute scramble to get everything we will need for our Easter Brunch tomorrow. Luckily, I was sent a great list of recipe ideas along with a ham and some bottles of the Barefoot Bubbly Prosecco to review and add to my list of great last minute Easter Brunch ideas!

For me, I have found that having champagne to add to a fresh brunch is always a great idea. I mean it is great for using to make those mimosas, adding some fruit to, as well as using in a fresh pink cocktail, which are all perfect for serving at your Easter Brunch or any Sunday Brunch line up!

Being that tomorrow is Easter, I found that adding some chocolate mousse and berry filled chocolate egg cups along with the Easter Ham, and some of the Barefoot Bubbly with berries added to it, will help to make our Easter Brunch come together. I really like how the Barefoot Bubbly Prosecco, is a great compliment to the rich chocolate mousse as well as the fresh berries. I also like that when we add the fresh squeezed orange juice to the Barefoot Bubbly for some mimosas, we can complete the brunch with fresh ham and sides! Making the last minute addition of the Barefoot Bubbly Prosecco, a great choice to have!

So if you are looking for those last minute additions to add to your Easter Brunch table, be sure to pick up some bottles of the Barefoot Bubbly Prosecco and also be sure to check out some of the recipes below!

I like the Tinkled Pink Cocktail drink. It looks pretty and I bet tastes delicious! I made a recipe like the Parmesan Scalloped Potato and Ham Stacks for Easter and it is so easy to make and put in a Muffin tin. Tastes so delicious!
