Hosting the Perfect Brunch Al Fresco

The pleasant weather and full bloom of spring make it the perfect time to move your brunch outdoors. But hosting a fabulous brunch al fresco requires more than building upon the relaxed and festive atmosphere that’s naturally associated with outdoor dining.

Wow your guests with one (or all) of these four fun, hand-crafted spring cocktails the next time you host brunch al fresco.
