Holiday brunch with friends and family is a great way to spread holiday cheer. Skip the usual Mimosa or Bellini and serve something truly unique to guests. Blushing Blue uses the deeply lush Blueberry Lavender Syrup. This versatile syrup is lovely sipped with champagne or club soda, but goes the distance as luscious dipping syrup for a few brunch food favorites like pancakes and waffles.
