So I can’t take credit for this lovely meal because Ben made it, but since I haven’t posted any recipes lately or drink recipes um…well ever, I thought I’d take a picture. Last Saturday was Valentines Day so Ben took me out to brunch at a beautiful little spot in in Chicago called Trencherman where we had beermosas and amazing food. I had the lemon pancakes, yum! Ben wanted to see if he could recreate the beermosas and he did, using 1/4 a grapefruit juiced mixed with 1 tablespoon of honey combined with an IPA beer. We used Anti-Hero by Revolution Brewing, but you can use whatever you prefer. Just mix the honey grapefruit juice mixture in with the beer and that’s it. I usually don’t like IPA’s and I am not a fan of grapefruit but for some reason these things mixed together taste amazing to me! Just give it a try if you are reluctant, I was at first too but I found my new favorite way to drink beer!
The sandwiches are also by Ben, he’s such a good cook! 🙂 He made cheese omelets and put them on wheat toast with tomatoes and kale. It was a perfect brunch for a chilly morning. Now we’re off to go to a Blackhawks game. We’ve never been to one and Ben got tickets at work so I think we’re off to a fun day!
