The Abbey Cocktail is an amazing brunch cocktail made with gin and orange juice. Quick and easy to mix for special weekend celebrations or a relaxing Sunday brunch with friends.
Is there anything better than a weekend brunch? Easy appetizers, Belgian Waffles, crispy Bacon, Cheesy Hashbrown Casserole, Buttermilk Biscuits and maybe a Baked Denver Omelet along with a few easy cocktails. It’s one of my favorite things, rather it’s just us and the kids or the entire clan.

What Is Gin?
Gin is a distilled alcoholic beverage made with juniper berries, herbs and botanicals found at any liquor store. A must-have for the home bartender. I keep it on hand for easy cocktails like the Bees Knees.
What is Vermouth?
Vermouth is a fortified wine that has been infused with botanicals. It’s popular for mixing cocktails and pairs well with gin.
What are Bitters?
Angostura bitters are made with extracts of grasses, roots, leaves and fruits dissolved in alcohol, it is ideal for balancing alcoholic drinks. You can usually pick it up at the grocery store in the isle with drink mixers.
