Got Signature Drinks??

At Haus of Kelley, we love the concept called signature drinks. We get excited when clients want to customize their drink menu to something festive that matches the theme of the event.

Having a signature drink at your event is a creative and fun way to keep the guests engaged. It is also a great conversation starter because no conversation has ever started with salad.

Drink Name: Coceaux Mangeaux

Recipe:

2 oz Coconut Rum

1 oz Amaretto

1 oz Mango Juice Blend (*We used Simply Tropical)

1/4 teaspoon Grenadine

Put ingredients into shaker with ice and shake well. Strain into cocktail glass. Top drink with cotton candy. Be sure to gently place the cotton candy on glass so it will not touch the liquid (it will dissolve if done incorrectly)

The Strawberry French Toast Stack

This week I decided to make french toast for brunch and add a strawberry topping. In between that is!! Check out the recipe and give it a try.

-XOXO

Makes about 2-4 Slices

Strawberry Topping

Strawberries

Sugar

*Dice or Cut Strawberries (to your style) and add sugar (I added 1 Tbsp). Set aside.

*Minimum 30 mins – 1 hour for juices to extract

Ingredients

2 Eggs

1 Tsp of vanilla

1/4 cup of Milk

1 Tsp Sugar

1 Tsp of Cinnamon

Bread (Artesano was chosen for this recipe)

Combine ingredients except bread in a bowl and whisk. Lightly press/cover bread with the mixture one by one.

Turn Skillet on medium heat and add butter or oil (butter is my preference). Add mixed bread slices to Skillet and fry until golden brown (about 1-2 mins on each side).

Take two slices of the french toast and add the strawberry topping in between each slice of bread.

I dusted the top with powder sugar but whipped cream would be great on top as well. Enjoy!

The Albert Burger

I set out on a gorgeous Saturday to have Brunch With my husband and siblings. I discovered a quaint neighborhood bar located in Inman Park called The Albert. Let me assure you that the food is so delicious and we ate every bite of it. My favorite menu item is The Albert Burger. It’s no surprise that I’m a huge pimento cheese advocate and this Burger gave me pimento cheese life!! Topped with bacon and pickled red onion. Now I know why The Albert is the favorite neighborhood bar in Inman Park. Give The Albert a try on your next visit to Atlanta.

Grant Park Market

Located in the historic Grant Park neighborhood is a new Market and it is adorable. I love this concept of a community grocery store and cafe. And the decor has a sleek and fashionable style that is jaw dropping. The best part is the Gather space where breakfast, lunch, dinner and Mimosas are served. The Grant Park Market is what the community needs right now!!

The Andouille Sausage Omelette

Today I wanted to cook an omelette but with a Nola twist. I decided on andouille sausage with a cajun remoulade sauce. Paired with a couple pieces of bacon (my dog Brody had the 3rd piece!) and orange slices and this Brunch was good to go. See the recipe below and give it a try.

~XOXO

Ingredients:

2 Fresh Eggs

Andouille Sausage (as much you’d like!)

Holy Trinity Seasoning (Onion, Celery, Bell Pepper)

Garlic Clove

Munster Cheese (1 slice)

Creole Seasoning

2 Slices of Bacon

Chop holy trinity seasoning and garlic clove until diced fine. For this Omelette I used 1/4 each vegetable for chopping. If you chop too much seasoning, don’t worry you can use the seasoning for other recipes. Chop the andouille sausage into small dices. In a medium skillet on medium heat, fry up the bacon until done and set aside. In the same pan sauté the holy trinity, garlic, and andouille sausage until done. Add Munster cheese slice.

Mix the eggs in a bowl and add the creole seasoning or seasoning salt (about a pinch) no more than 1/8 teaspoon. Add butter (unsalted) to the pan. Add egg mixture and allow the eggs to form a ring around the sausage mixture. With a spatula, fold the eggs towards the sausage in a repeated motion as the eggs cook. Do the same to the opposite end of Omelette. Gently fold the eggs over and slide onto the plate.

Cajun Remoulade

1 cup of Mayo

1 Tablespoon of Dijon Mustard

1 teaspoon of holy trinity seasoning

1 teaspoon of lemon juice

1 teaspoon of creole seasoning

1 pinch of Cayenne pepper

Mix all ingredients and drizzle over Omelette.
