Spring Brunch Ideas for Pairing with Sweet Wines
Spring is here friends, and what’s not to love about that?! The sun is out longer, birds are singing, flowers are blooming, and we’re … brunching. Oh man, are we brunching. Because even if we didn’t enjoy flowers, or birds, or sunny days, a glass of chilled sweet wine and yummy eats is our idea of a divinely good time. We have a feeling you agree, which is why we’ve put together this list of spring brunch ideas that pair fantastically with our Electra Moscatos and dessert wines.
Read on, then grab a picnic blanket, cushy pillows (and your friend who plays guitar), and head outside for a sweet spring brunch full of relaxing, flavorful fun!
One of the best things about brunch is that you can mix & match breakfast and lunch foods for a smorgasbord that’s sure to satisfy everyone in your group. Mini quiches or egg bites are a great spring brunch idea for those who prefer some proper breakfast foods in their mix. There are endless ways to season quiche, and pretty much all of them go well with a crisp glass of Electra Moscato. Electra’s light & sweet peach, citrus and melon flavors are a nice complement to the rich, savory flavors of quiche/egg bites.
Speaking of eggs, you can’t go wrong with dishing up deviled eggs during spring or Easter brunch; they’re a classic food staple for gatherings! Whether you prefer yours whipped up with some sweet relish and paprika, or with a bit of kick using bacon and jalapeños, deviled eggs are even better enjoyed with a glass of chilled Electra Moscato Rosé. Its versatile strawberry and dragonfruit sweetness pairs well with sweet, savory and spicy deviled egg recipes.
Don’t forget to include some greens! A mixed green salad is another versatile spring brunch idea because it’s light, fresh and adds balance to a mix of heavier and sweet food options.
Cold cuts and macaroni salad are a perfect picnic option; if you’re serving brunch on Easter, go with ham for giving guests a taste of tradition. Red Electra Moscato’s cherry-berry and pomegranate flavors pair wonderfully with meats, whether you decide to bake a ham, serve cold cuts, or throw some ribs on the grill.
You know what else any Electra pairs well with? Cinnamon rolls! Electra Moscatos are all light with a hint of effervescence for a crisp, delightfully sweet finish that complements, rather than competes with, the sugary goodness of cinnamon rolls. Technically breakfast-y, definitely delicious, this spring brunch idea will get you extra kudos from guests.
It’s basically a brunch rule that there must be mimosas on the menu! Essensia Orange Muscat and Elysium Black Muscat dessert wines are marvelous mixed with sparkling wine – no extra fruit juice needed thanks to the rich flavors and aromas in these wines! If you love orange, apricot and honey, add Essensia to your bubbly, and for those who prefer dark berry and rose flavors, Elysium will make your bubbles extra blissful.
We hope this list of spring brunch ideas has you inspired to get out and soak up some sweetness and sunshine this season. What other brunch foods would you serve with sweet wines from Quady?
