Post-Prom Brunch Ideas: Delicious Recipe & Mocktail Pairings

After the pre-prom party, the actual prom and then the after-prom party, it's time to kick back, relax, recoup and relive all those great memories made the night before. 


In our minds, there's no better way to do just that than with a post-prom brunch, complete with lots of yummy recipes and matching mocktails.

Since this is a special occasion, skip the same old and go for a brunch recipe that you wouldn't ordinarily make. We've collected quite the library of brunch recipes, so we figured we'd help narrow down the menu.

Below are our top 5 post-prom brunch recipe pairings. They're simple, yet special and come equipped with a mocktail to finish off the meal perfectly.

French Toast Casserole & Strawberry Kiwi Punch

This first recipe pairing, a French toast casserole and Strawberry Kiwi Punch, brings lots of sweetness to the celebration. While individual servings of French toast can be a bit of a pain to coordinate for a crowd, the casserole approach makes it extra easy. Compliment the savory cinnamon and nut flavors in the toast with a refreshing strawberry kiwi punch. Our recipe uses champagne, but just swap the booze out for sprite or club soda for a mocktail version!

Funfetti Waffles & Pomegranate Iced Tea

Funfetti waffles are the epitome of a celebratory brunch and we bet everyone will LOVE having these guys on the menu. It's easy to make a batch of the batter and then whip up waffles for everyone if you've got a maker. Pair this colorful brunch recipe with our homemade pomegranate iced tea for a fun, yet restorative meal. 

Zucchini Muffins & Frozen Strawberry Clementine Mocktail

Mini zucchini muffins can be made ahead of the brunch and pair pretty perfectly with this strawberry clementine mocktail. Add an extra touch of fun and celebration to your post-prom brunch by incorporating our easy DIY pom pom stirrers into whatever drink you pour and wrapping muffins in colorful paper with a ribbon tie - make sure you pick school colors to make them out of!

Parmesan Pea Frittata & Angosoda

If your group is more daring and a bit more sophisticated with their palates, consider serving this chic combo. A Parmesan and pea frittata brings a sweet, salty and savory flavor to the post-prom brunch, perfect for pairing with the more bitter and tangier Angosoda mocktail. When served together, the two taste great and also look gorgeous, too!

Ham Strata & Apple Julep

In our final pairing for a post-prom brunch, we're keeping it classic, but adding a twist. While most people simply toss chopped ham and cheese into their scrambled eggs, we recommend turning those same ingredients into a chic strata. Be sure to pair this yummy dish with our Apple Julep, too - it's a take on the classic Mint Julep, but a little sweeter and sans alcohol.
