Another month seems to have flown by and along with that comes a new theme for Mixology Monday. This month's MxMo is graciously hosted by the group over at Cocktail Enthusiast, spearheaded by Kevin Gray. As the description goes...
'The theme is “morning drinks.” Breakfast cocktails were the norm in the nineteenth century, when cocktails were a common beginning to one’s day. The drink’s purpose was to help the imbiber recover from the past night’s indiscretions and to steel their resolve for the coming day.
We’re all familiar with bloody marys, mimosas and bellinis, but what else constitutes a breakfast drink? We’re looking for corpse revivers, eye openers and hair of the dog – drinks that jump start your morning, absolve the prior night’s sins or just taste really good with eggs and bacon.
