We all know that mothers are amazing and here at Four Roses, we believe they deserve more than just one day of recognition for all that they do. Spoil the moms in your life—whether it’s your mom, wife, mom-to-be, or yourself—by checking out our Four Roses inspired brunch menu shared with us by Chef Kimberly Brock Brown. We are excited to team up with Chef Kimberly, the first African American woman elected to the board of the American Culinary Federation (ACF), and we know serving up this brunch for mom will make for a weekend she’s sure to enjoy.
For an added bonus, you can pair the meal with our Bourbon Sunrise cocktail made with Four Roses Bourbon. Check out the recipes below and don’t forget to share your masterpieces with us on Facebook, Instagram or Twitter.
