Mimosa Bar

Providing a mimosa bar at brunch gives your guests the freedom to create their own cocktail, and is the perfect opportunity to try something new!

  • Fresh raspberries, strawberries and blueberries
  • Herbs, including mint, rosemary and sage
  • Juices, including orange and grapefruit (fresh-squeezed is always the best option)
  • A variety of California champagnes: KORBEL Brut, Sweet Rosé and Brut Rosé

Red, White and Blue Trifle

Whip up this summer-themed creation to treat guests to a flavorful breakfast that packs a punch.


  • 8 cups prepared angel food cake, cubed
  • 1 cup blueberries
  • 1 cup raspberries
  • 1 (16-oz.) tub frozen whipped topping, thawed
  • ¼ cup Jack Daniel’s Original Recipe Tennessee Honey®
