    I would offer mimosas, bloody marys, and hard cider (preferable Magners because it isn’t too sweet).

    I would probably do mimosas, bloody marys, and hard cider too. 

    Harpoon Cider and Bantam (if you can get it, it’s made in MA and I’m not sure how widely it’s distributed) are my favorites, so much better than anything else I’ve tried.

    My guess is that mimosas and bloody marys will be by far the most popular. I like both, and I tend to order based on what I’m eating. Something savory, like an omelette or bagels and lox- mimosa. Something sweet, like french toast or waffles- bloody mary.

    I would drink only mimosas and hard cider out of your list, but bloody marys do make sense for brunch (I just don’t like them).

    Mimosa and Bloody Mary!  These are classic but I like the idea of hard cider as well:)

    Can I come to your wedding?!? Mimosas are my absolute fav. I think they’re top of the list! And white wine pleases a lot of people. I’m not a big fan of Bloody Marys. personally, but they are a very traditional brunch drink. I, personally, love hard cider, but it it probably the lest brunchy, but might be good for typical beer drinkers. But honestly, as long as you have mimosas, I’m a happy camper!

    for brunch i would serve mimosas and blood marys. they are brunch drinks.

    but if the venue won’t let you serve red wine, are you sure they are going to let you serve bloody marys?

    @gromble:  MIMOSA’S!!!

    Also, I LOVE sangria.  It’s a nice daytime option.

    @gromble:  I’d say bloody mary’s/ mimosa’s. I wouldn’t count beer out though.. My FI LOVES having beer with his brunch, as do a few other guys I know.

    Just a thought!

    How about coffee with Bailey’s? That’s a fab breakfast drink. 🙂 Or any kind of coffee/alcohol combo would be fun.

    I suggest replacing the bloody mary with a Caesar, because BMs can be so bland sometimes. I would do caesars, mimosas, and a non-sweet hard cider like Waupoos. I would even consider a white wine sangria, and specialty coffees.

    I love cider 🙂 (not like white lightning though! lol) we have an amazing strawberry and lime cider which I could drink for England! 😀 but most ciders are such lovely refreshing summery drinks
