Treat Yo Self Brunch Recipes!

Treat yo self and your friends to a sweet spread of cucumber cups, scones bar, and grapefruit rosemary sparklers! Recipes below!

|Grapefruit and Rosemary Sparkler|

For the rosemary simple syrup:
1 cup water
1 cup sugar
8 sprigs rosemary

For each cocktail:
3 oz grapefruit juice
2 oz Korbel Brut
1 ½ oz rosemary simple syrup
2 dashes Angostura Orange bitters
Ice cubes
Sliced grapefruit to garnish
Fresh rosemary sprig to garnish

Make the simple syrup: in a saucepan, combine water and sugar. Heat the mixture, until it simmers and the sugar has fully dissolved. Add fresh rosemary sprigs and allow to simmer for another 2 minutes. Set aside to cool completely, remove rosemary sprigs, and store in a clean jar.
To make the cocktail: add some ice, grapefruit juice, rosemary simple syrup, and bitters. Shake vigorously, then pour into a glass with new ice, top with Korbel Brut, and garnish with a sprig of rosemary and grapefruit slice.

|Cucumber Cups|

Pimento Cheese & Bacon Cups:
4 tbsp roasted red pepper, diced
1/2 cup monterey jack cheese, shredded
1 pkg (8 oz) cream cheese, softened
1/3 cup mayo
1/2 tsp garlic powder
5 slices cooked bacon
2 cucumbers

Smoked Salmon & Cream Cheese Cups:
several smoked salmon slices
1 pkg (8 oz) cream cheese, softened
3 tbsp capers
3 tbsp dill, chopped
1/2 shallot, thinly sliced
2 cucumbers

Cut and scoop cucumbers to form small cups. Place on paper towel to absorb moisture. Mix pimento cheese ingredients, expect the bacon, in one bowl. In another bowl, combine the other ingredients, except smoked salmon. Scoop a small spoonful of each mixture into the cucumber cups. Top the pimento cups with bacon pieces and the other with smoked salmon pieces.

|English Scones|

3 ½ cups all-purpose flour
¼ cup + 1 tbsp granulated sugar
2 tbsp baking powder
½ tsp kosher salt
½ cup milk, at room temperature
½ cup buttermilk, at room temperature
2 eggs, at room temperature
⅓ cup unsalted butter, cubed and softened
assorted jams and cream


Preheat oven to 450°F. In a mixing bowl, mix flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt together. Then incorporate softened butter, until the mixture appears like crumbly light sand.
In another bowl, mix eggs, milk, and buttermilk. Pour into the dry ingredients, and mix just until combined. Be sure not to over mix.
Turn dough onto a clean, floured surface. Coat your hands with flour and knead the dough to spread and flatten into a rectangular disc. Use a cookie cutter or knife, to cut out your desired scones shape. You may gather the leftover dough to form more scones.
Place the scones on a silicone mat or parchment paper. Brush the tops with some buttermilk. Bake for about 10 minutes, or until the tops are golden brown.
Remove from oven and allow to cool on a rack.
