(Source: Bottiglia Cucina & Enoteca Facebook page)

On Sundays, the promise of brunch is the ultimate motivation to get out of bed. After all, what could be finer than indulging in an adult beverage while enjoying sweet or savory fare (or perhaps a little bit of both) while rehashing the weekend’s exploits with friends?

At Bottiglia Cucina and Enoteca, we take brunch seriously, and we want you to enjoy the best meal experience possible. In order to help facilitate the best possible flavor pairings with your chosen entree, here’s a  handy guide to pairing drinks with items from our brunch menu. Featuring tasting notes and pairing suggestions for some of our most popular brunch menu items, this guide will help you choose delicious combinations, and just may inspire you to try something new.

Bottiglia’s bar menu: a bruncher’s dream. At Bottiglia, we boast a full bar, and our brunch beverage offerings are second to none. Where to start? For cocktail lovers, we offer a robust cocktail menu featuring our creative signature drinks; or, you can order your favorite mixed drink. Is wine your jam? We’ve got red, white, and sparkling wines by the glass and bottle. Is beer more your style? We’ve got you covered, with a great variety of drafts and bottles.

We also have some ideal group-friendly options to get the party started in style. We offer both Sangria Blanco (with white wine, apricot, vermouth blanc, lemon, and sonoma chardonnay tea ice), and Sangria Rosso (with red wine, dry curacao, sweet vermouth, lemon, and hibiscus sangria tea ice) by the pitcher.

Pairing drinks with our brunch menu: Ready to order? Here are some tasting notes and suggestions for pairing a beverage with our classic brunch menu items.

Fresh Seasonal Fruit: If you’re looking for a little detox with your retox, you’ll love our fresh, seasonal fruit, which is served with berry compote and coconut creme. The natural sweetness of this dish pairs beautifully with a Bellini (made with white peach puree and prosecco) or a Mimosa (made with fresh orange juice and prosecco).

Fruit Parfait: If you love our seasonal fruit dish, but want a few more bells and whistles, this is your dish. Fruit is complemented with an unforgettable and unique vanilla buffalo yogurt and granola; eating fresh never tasted so good. Our fruit parfait goes well with a Bellini or Mimosa, or you might consider cocktail we call La Bella Vita (featuring aperol, strawberries, lemon, and prosecco).

Cinnamon Bread Pudding: This bread pudding is anything but boring, with toasted hazelnuts, raisins, and salted caramel. Enjoy it with some bubbly, or try it with our 50/50 cocktail, which features Belvedere unfiltered vodka, vermouth bianco, and Scrappy’s orange bitters.

Smoked Salmon and Bagel: Brunch like you’re in the big apple! Our platter includes an everything bagel, whipped cream cheese, sliced tomato, and salmon. The key is choosing a beverage assertive enough to stand up to that everything bagel seasoning mix. A worthy option? Our Mulo Pazzo cocktail, featuring Avion silver tequila, lime, basil, and ginger beer.

Two Eggs Any Style: We serve eggs in whatever style you like, paired with breakfast potatoes, toast, and jam. With a classic dish like this, a variety of flavors will pair well with it; it truly is a menu item where just about any drink will act as an ideal pairing. For something different, pair it with our Italian Stallion cocktail, which features Casamigos reposado tequila, amaretto, citrus, egg white, and rosemary.

Egg White Scramble: Brunch like a ballerina with this light scramble, which is served with sliced avocado and asparagus. Pair it with something light and bright, such as a Mimosa, or try something new by ordering our Sangria Blanco, a white wine sangria option.

Eggs Benedict: We feature two Eggs Benedict options on our menu. Our Prosciutto Eggs Benedict features poached eggs, prosciutto, and Hollandaise atop English muffin halves; the California Eggs Benedict features roasted tomato, rotisserie chicken, and avocado. While the approaches are both different, the richness of both Benedicts calls for something complementary. An ideal contender is our Citrus Hiball cocktail, which is made with Jim Beam white label bourbon whiskey, lemon, and soda.

French Toast: You’ll love our French toast, which is served with blackberries and an addictive bourbon maple syrup. Make it even better with bubbly, or try it with our Fresca Fizz cocktail, which includes raspberries, along with your choice of Grey Goose vodka or Bombay Sapphire gin, mint, and prosecco.

Pancakes: It’s awfully hard to resist our fluffy pancakes. We have two options for serving. For those who like to keep it simple, we serve them with cinnamon butter cinnamon butter and bourbon maple syrup; for those who want something a little different, we serve them with blueberry, lemon curd, and bourbon maple syrup. Either version is even better when served with our Apricot Sour cocktail, made with Basil Hayden’s bourbon whiskey, apricot, lemon, and egg white.

Build Your Own Omelette: Choose your own adventure by incorporating a variety of mix-ins with your eggs. Regardless of what flavor combination you choose, chances are it’s going to taste great with our Blood Orange Mimosa, which is made with Absolut Elyx vodka, aperol, blood orange, lemon, and prosecco.

Corned Beef Hash: A hearty and satisfying brunch classic! Ours features poached eggs and tomatillo hollandaise. It’s the perfect pairing with a beer, or try it with a cocktail with citrus to “cut” through the richness. A great pick? Our Off to the Races cocktail, which is made with Russell’s Reserve 10 year bourbon whiskey, ruby red grapefruit, lemon, and Peychaud’s bitters.
