Blame it on our new-found ob­ses­sion with morn­ing feast­ing: switch­ing por­ridge for pou­tine, and boiled eggs for potato pan­cakes with sour cream leeks, poached duck eggs and to­biko wasabi caviar, but even break­fast time has now as­sumed a more elab­o­rate, and, frankly, more al­co­holic pro­file in the alarm­ing shape of the break­fast cock­tail. Ide­ally a week­end treat, they are craftily tak­ing the form of more well be­haved­look­ing morn­ing quenchers – a mi­mosa might hap­pily pass for an or­ange or grape­fruit juice in a flute, an Ir­ish cof­fee as a flat white, or a Ramos gin fizz as a glass of milk. Mean­while, the Nite­hawk Cinema in Brooklyn is of­fer­ing an en­tire White Rus­sian menu at its morn­ing car­toon ses­sions, in­clud­ing the milk- and vodka-based Sonny, topped with Co­coa Puffs. We’ve taken in­spi­ra­tion and cre­ated our own ver­sion us­ing Lucky Charms. Se­rial drink­ing has never looked so in­no­cent.
