Boozy Brunch is in Bloom with Ruby Slipper's Spring SpecialsNew Orleans, LA  (  There’s no time like springtime, especially when enjoying the “joie de vivre” of a boozy brunch – the kind guests savor at Ruby Slipper. As the home of the New Orleans-style brunch, Ruby Slipper is always creating craveworthy new dishes to celebrate the season’s flavors – and spring is perfect for fresh, new indulgences.

“Every spring, we add lighter seasonal flavors like citrus and berries to complement our new dishes,” said Ruby Slipper Culinary Operations Partner Marla Chua. “When we take those elements, add inspiration from our Cajun and Creole roots and infuse with our spirit of decadence, you get new menu items that brunch fans will fall in love with.”

Now through April 30, all Ruby Slipper and Ruby Sunshine locations will feature these spring-themed specials, guaranteed to satisfy every guest’s brunch cravings:

  • Lavender-Lemon Seasonal Beignets ($7.25): New Orleans-style beignets with lavender cheesecake, lemon curd, whipped cream with purple sugar crystals and powdered sugar.
  • Almond Berry Pancakes ($12.50): Housemade sweet cream batter with cinnamon and sugar. Topped with almond créme, macerated strawberries, whipped cream and powdered sugar. (Add Applewood-smoked bacon for $2; add side cake for $4.50.)
  • Pineapple Ham Benedict ($15.00): Mike’s hot honey-glazed Applewood-smoked ham served over a grilled buttermilk biscuit, pineapple-cherry relish, topped with two poached eggs, finished with hollandaise and garnished with chives.
  • Gin Blossom Lemonade ($11.50): Miles’ Gin, Monin lavender syrup, lemonade and fresh lemon.
