Rapunzel is probably the most boho of all the princesses. She wears flowers in her hair, is barefoot during all of Tangled, and has a pet chameleon. Okay, maybe the chameleon part doesn’t really fit in, but as a pet it’s pretty unconventional, and isn’t that part of being a bohemian? Being a bohemian princess is a lifestyle, including how you brunch. Boho brunches are a thing, and today we’re showing you how to channel Disney’s bohemian princess, Rapunzel, into your next brunch party!
Ready to make some magic? Read on!
Let’s start with toast… colorful, fruity toast, to be exact. Spread cream cheese on toasted wheat bread and top with your favorite fruits and herbs. Simple, yet delicious.
Rapunzel’s Magical Golden Flower Juice
Flower, gleam, and glow! Let your power shine! This boozy brunch would not be complete without Rapunzel’s Magical Golden Flower Juice.
Makes 1 serving
- 1 ounce rum
- ½ ounce vermouth
- 2 ounces freshly squeezed lemon juice
- 2 ounces sparkling water
- 2 ounces lavender simple syrup
- lavender (fresh or dried)
To bring out the floral essence of Rapunzel’s powers, we’re going to start off by making a lavender simple syrup. Bring to boil a small pot, filled with one cup of water and one cup of sugar. Add in a tablespoon of dried lavender. Stir occasionally until all the sugar crystals have melted. Let the mixture cool to room temperature.
To achieve the golden color of the juice, mix the rum, vermouth, lemon juice, and lavender simple syrup in a cocktail shaker. Pour out the juice, and top the glass off with some sparkling water and a sprig of lavender.
Flowers are huge for Rapunzel. Not only did she get her powers from a magical sun flower, but she loves to decorate her hair with them. Use flower cookie cutters to cut blossoms out of melon slices. Layer the shapes together to create your own fruit flower.
On the topic of flowers, fashion a beautiful salad with fresh arugula, spinach, berries, and edible flowers.
We adorned the table with gold sequin fabric as a reference to Rapunzel’s glowy hair. Flower blooms and lanterns are arranged through the spread to reference the magic moment in the movie when Flynn and Rapunzel sat in the gondola and sang “I See the Light.”
I’ve got a dream! I’ve got a dream! I just want to see the floating lanterns gleam!
