I’m racking my brain trying to figure out what to serve as far as beverages.
And what I am thinking is this:
Having those cool little drink dispensers (like for iced tea and stuff) and having different drinks from that with signs.
The drinks that I am thinking about are:
-Sangria (like in Four Weddings…LOVED that idea)
-Bellini (in the dispenser too, would this work?)
What other options should I consider? It will be in June and be hot, so I figure that having colder beverages would be best.

@Rosie Girl: second the mimosa!
spiked lemonade is always good.
what about pink champagne with frozen strawberries in it?

@Rosie Girl: I agree with mimosas!

When I think of brunch, I think bloody mary.

Lemonade champagne punch:
4 (12 ounce) cans frozen lemonade concentrate
1 1/2 quarts water
2 liters ginger ale, chilled
1 liter sparkling water, chilled
1 (7/8 quart) bottle dry champagne, chilled
(or something of the like)
SO YUMMY! And refreshing and yes, could be kept in dispensers.

I wanted non alcoholic options. That’s why I chose lemonade and iced tea. =] But I will be having maybe Sangria and Bellini’s (which is like mimosas but with peach instead)

I highly recommend pineapple mimosas. Just substitute orange juice for pineapple juice. It’s even better than the traditional kind and isn’t as heavy. So good!

iI am concerned the champagne in the bellini or mimosa would fizzle. How about a strawberry margarita or mango mojito? I love the idea of sangria, lemonade, and ice tea. The sangria gets better as it sits there just marinating!

I was gonna say mimosas too!!! It goes very well with the brunch idea 🙂

Iced coffee bar? All you need is a big jug of chilled coffee, a variety of creamers and sweetener options and ice.
For the lemonade, you could add frozen berries and juice for flavored lemonade as your ‘signature’ drink. It would be different, and really nice for a hot day.

Ahhh okay well non alcoholic options:
Stawberry Lemonade – with fresh strawberries
2 ounces lemon juice (or the juice of 1 lemon)
1 ounce grenadine
1 ounce carbonated lemon-lime beverage
1 ounce sparkling water
- 4 cups drinking water
- 2 cups fresh fruit (watermelon works great)
- 1/4 cup sugar
- 2 teaspoons lemon or lime juice
- lime or lemon wedges for garnish
In a blender combine water and fruit. Puree until smooth. Pour mixture through a sieve into a pitcher or serving container. Stir in lemon or lime juice and sugar. Add additional sugar to taste. Garnish with a lemon or lime wedge.

Nice! Thanks so much! I’m thinking of having a water dispenser, with just bits of fruit to look nice. Lol. And now I’m concerned about the Bellini as well. I’m thinking about white wine instead of champagne. Hmmm…
