Love Breakfast but Enjoy Cocktails More? Try These!

These mixed drinks are perfect for National Breakfast Month.

By Cari Jorgensen

September is National Breakfast Month. Rather than give you a list of Mimosa, Bloody Mary and Bellini recipes, we found 10 cocktails that perfectly represent breakfast (even if just in name alone).

All good breakfasts start with coffee, tea, milk or juice.

Casino Coffee

Ingredients:
½ oz brandy
½ oz dark crème de cacao
½ oz amaretto almond liqueur
5 oz hot black coffee
1½ oz whipped cream
1 tsp sugar

Garnish:
Grated chocolate

Preparation:
Pour the coffee, brandy, crème de cacao and amaretto almond liqueur in an Irish coffee cup. Sweeten to taste. Float the whipped cream on top, then sprinkle with grated chocolate.

Fireside Tea

Ingredients:
1 oz dark rum
5 oz hot black tea
1 lemon wedge
1 cinnamon stick
1 tsp sugar

Preparation:
Pour the tea in a heat-proof wine goblet. Sweeten to taste. Add the rum, lemon wedge and cinnamon stick.

Chocolate Milk

Ingredients:
½ shot Droste chocolate liqueur
½ shot milk
1 dash amaretto almond liqueur

Preparation:
Pour the milk first. Then pour the chocolate liqueur on top, followed by a dash of the amaretto almond liqueur. Do not mix it.

Pineappleless Pineapple Juice

Ingredients:
4½ oz Southern Comfort peach liqueur
1 splash Bacardi 151 rum
3 oz 7-Up soda
4 oz orange juice
4 oz Coca-Cola

Preparation:
Pour the peach liqueur to the first line of a 16-ounce Solo plastic cup. Add the rum, sodas and orange juice. Swirl briefly.

Perhaps pancakes go best with your drink of choice.

Buttered Pancakes

Ingredients:
1 oz peach schnapps
1 oz Captain Morgan Original spiced rum
6 oz Pepsi cola

Preparation:
Fill a highball glass halfway with ice cubes. Pour in the peach schnapps, rum and Pepsi. Stir well.

Maybe you’re in the mood for eggs.

Green Eggs

Ingredients:
1 oz vodka
1 oz Irish cream
½ oz green crème de menthe
6 oz milk

Preparation:
Fill a cocktail shaker halfway with ice cubes. Pour in the vodka and Irish cream. Add the milk and green crème de menthe. Shake well. Pour the mix into a highball glass that is half full with ice cubes.

If you don’t have too much time to eat, you can always grab some toast, fruit or a slice of banana nut bread.

Cinnamon Toast

Ingredients:
1¼ oz Captain Morgan Original spiced rum
6 oz hot apple cider

Preparation:
Using cinnamon and sugar, rim an old-fashioned glass. Add the hot apple cider and spiced rum.

Fruit Basket

Ingredients:
3 parts crème de bananes
2 parts Captain Morgan Parrot Bay coconut rum
1 part triple sec
1 part blackberry brandy
3 parts orange juice
2 parts pineapple juice
fill with apple juice

Preparation:
Mix all ingredients in a bowl or pitcher. Pour into an ice-filled glass. Garnish with your choice of fruit.

Banana Nutbread

1 oz Frangelico hazelnut liqueur
1 oz crème de bananes
½ oz dry sherry
1 tbsp vanilla ice cream

Preparation:
Put half a glass full of crushed ice in a blender, followed by all of the ingredients. Blend briefly. Pour into a double cocktail glass.

But whatever you choose, you can’t start the day without breakfast.
