Philly's Best Brunch Cocktails

By Antonia DePace | September 28, 2020 | Food & Drink


After all, you can’t beat a boozy brunch.

1. Bloody Mary at K’Far

Order your bloody mary at Michael Solomonov’s Israeli cafe before snagging an outdoor seat. Made with all of the usual ingredients of the popular brunch bevvy, what makes this cocktail special is the addition of schug: a spicy green Israeli condiment.

2. Cocktail Pouches at Bud & Marilyn’s

Enjoy the weekend weather with outdoor brunch at Val Safran and Marcie Turney’s neighborhood restaurant. New on the menu are 14-ounce cocktail pouches with fun names like The Real Housewife (vodka, white wine, blueberry, elderflower and lemon), Rainbow Punch (raspberry, lemon and fizzy water) and The RGB (gin, strawberry-tarragon, lemon and lime).

3. All the Way Up at Founding Farmers King of Prussia

Complement your eggs Benedict and bruleed grapefruit with the All the Way Up cocktail. A rendition of the modern espresso martini, it’s concocted with Founding Spirits vodka, cognac, cold brew coffee, coconut milk, coffee syrup and egg white—and is sure to kick-start your day.

4. Champagne Pop at The Twisted Tail

Get your hands on this adult popsicle while the weather’s still worthy. Named the Champagne Pop, the icy treat comes in lemon or strawberry flavors that’s then dunked into a glass of bubbly. Pinkies up!

5. Cactus Blossom at Art in the Age

Shake New Liberty tequila, Morris Kitchen grapefruit-honey mixer, dashes of Fee Brothers rose water, aqua faba and salt together with no ice before pouring into a glass and topping with seltzer—at least that’s how they do it at Art in the Age. Decorated with crushed pink peppercorns or dried rose petals, it makes for the perfect refreshing pick-me-up.

6. Froze at Talula’s Garden

Miniature chocolate croissants, French toast sticks and decadent Hog Candy (sriracha candy-coated bacon strips) top some of the favorite brunch hors d’oeuvres at the Washington Square hot spot. As for your beverage, order the froze: French roseĢ with organic fruit juices, local vodka and a hint of organic cane sugar all mixed up into a frothy delight.
