Oh Burger King ... trying to get all fancy schmancy on us. The fast-food chain is testing out a brunch menu at stores in Massachusetts and Florida. Yes, brunch. Better make those Mother's Day brunch reservations now.

And they're even serving mimosas ... whoo! Delicious orange juice splashed with champagne Sprite. Wait, what? Sprite? Hate to break it to you BK, but that is NOT a mimosa.

If they do decide to go the brunch route, here are some other brunch drinks that I'm sure they'll be screwing up:

  1. Bellini: My favorite brunch beverage. Normally made with peach puree and champagne. BK version: Peach drink and tonic water. It still has bubbles!
  2. Bloody Mary: Vodka, tomato juice, hot sauce, Worcestershire sauce, lemon juice, and a stalk of celery or shrimp. BK version: Ketchup mixed with Sprite and their house hot sauce.
  3. Latte: One part espresso, three parts steamed milk with foam on top. BK version: Coffee with creamer.
  4. Sangria: A fantastic mixture of fruit and wine. BK version: Fruit punch.

What do you think about Burger King's brunch idea? What's your favorite brunch drink?
