If you're like me, you're not the hugest fan in the world of a Bloody Mary (sacrilege, I know!) This cocktail is a great alternative for those boozy brunches: Gordon's Breakfast has a nice blend of sweet and spice, and lets you customize it to your liking by adding relative amounts of syrup or sauce.
