Spring into Easter Cocktails
Spring has sprung, the grass is risen, I wonder where the cocktails is…!
Well look no further, because here I’ve put together a list of my very favourite Easter cocktails, and I recommend you try at least one of them. They all pay homage to our favourite furry festive friend, the Easter Bunny. So raise a toast to the chocolate-loving buck, and make sure you have a very Good Friday!
The Fizzy Bunny
This mimosa-style cocktail embodies everything I love about Easter. It is fizzy, wet and alcoholic. Okay, so that’s nothing to do with the religious holiday. But it is sweet, so I’d happily swap it for my chocolate egg. It is easy to make too – you simply pour one part carrot juice, one part orange juice and four parts champagne into a glass with a dash of cayenne pepper and an orange wheel garnish.
This super-cute cocktail will be a hit with guests. The jello gives it a fun, sweet edge, and the cream makes it irresistible. Start by making up the strawberry jello with ¾ cups of boiling water. When t has dissolved, add half a cup of triple sec and a couple of handfuls of ice. Pour into a blender and combine until smooth. Pour into glasses and refrigerate for two hours. Garnish with whipped cream and peeps.
You can’t celebrate Easter without a little bit of chocolate indulgence. This cocktail is perfect for this time of year, mixing my two favourite treats. Fill a glass with crushed ice and then pour in one part Vodka, three parts Crème de Cacao, a tablespoon of Cherry Liqueur and a tablespoon of chocolate sauce, and stir to combine.
This is the perfect Easter Egg for your grown-up friends. The white chocolate feels deliciously decadent, and the Easter bunny would be proud to serve up such a cocktail. Fill a glass with ice, and add a shot of Crème de Cacao White and a shot of Bols Blue Curacao. Top up with Half and Half and enjoy!
White Chocolate Easter-tini
Join the kids on a sweetie-binge with this tasty cocktail. Fill a cocktail shaker with ice and add an ounce of vanilla vodka, an ounce of cream, and ounce of white chocolate liqueur and two ounces of eggnog. Shake and strain into a martini glass and garnish with jellybeans!
