Written By: Geoff Kutnick at

Brunch. Such a positive word, emotional even.

It implies waking at your leisure, meeting people you care about and gorging 50 percent more than a normal meal, because hey—it counts as two right? And we all plan to actually burn the calories considering we have the rest of the day. Well, we’ll get to that after the food coma nap. And a House of Cards binge watching session. OK, let’s just schedule the calorie-burning thing for tomorrow. drink recipe for brunch
