It’s brunch o’clock! 
Brunch o'clock!

Straddling between breakfast and lunch time, brunch has become the hottest trend these days… our favorite leisure break! It’s story was framed in the late 1800s by English and its’ fame was escalated after 130 years in the U.S. However, the word itself was first appeared in Hunter’s Weekly content when Guy Beringer asked the public to have only light meals before going to church on Sunday afternoon. He said that brunch gives you a more jaunty temper and you are instantly like an upbeat ‘’looney kid’’. He even suggested the local restaurants and pubs serving beer with a nice plate of delicacies instead of the typical English tea or coffee. However, there was a short mention on the Punch magazine in 1876 saying that when you eat at times which are a bit closer to breakfast, this is brunch…

They say that the famous broker ‘’Benedict, who was working in Wall Street, came up with the delicious dish we all know, back at 1894. The old version of brunch included traditional waffles, the typical English/American pancakes and omelettes, but the modern fare throws us for a loop. Sweet and sour cupcakes, different types of pizzas and mini burgers,
filled or not pancakes with endless toppings, scrabbled/Scandinavian poached/benedict eggs, English typical breakfast dish, Italian scones, Spanish frittatas, amazing types of breads with marmalade/sour cream or chocolate; this never-ending savory list will make you swoon or start packing for your next brunch journey around the world!

We are used to have brunch usually on weekends, particularly on lazy Sundays and that’s because the most of us are workaholic night crawlers or insane party-goers who had terrible morning headaches due to last nights’ cocktail shots! But it isn’t ideal only for the night carousers, we’re all lucky enough to have such an experience in our homes. So, imagine an array of mouth-watering delicacies like a huge foodie masterpiece, embraced by your loved ones and hundreds of cheerful emotions.
The magic in brunch is hidden behind these words: ultimate pleasure, indulgence, fulfillment, enjoyment!

Extra Purple Tip: If you don’t fancy enjoying your delicious espresso/cappuccino or Dominicana (Russian – Caffe Lolita & coffee liqueur) while brunching, then, why not take a sip of a cooling Mimosa, Aperol Spritz, Peach or Cherry Bellini, Bloody Mary, Sparkling Pomegranate Punch or a Gin Lemonade!
