Champagne brunch? Why not! If you’re a maple syrup fan, the beginning of spring also signals the start of maple sugaring season. It’s also the perfect excuse to have a brunch party featuring Rhode Island maple syrup drizzled over your favorite pancakes, waffles, or french toast. Make it a celebration and serve delicious bubbly or some fresh juice mimosas to complete the party! We’ve selected a great sparkling wine (ok, so technically not Champagne, but a Spanish Cava) to balance all that sweet, maple syrup goodness.
- Chepachet Farms, Spring Hill Sugarhouse, and Uncle Buck’s Sugar House are all Rhode Island maple syrup producers. Check out farmfresh.com for more local maple syrup!
