Egg hunts are for the kids at Easter. This year, hunt out the best cocktail recipes for a grown-up celebration. Below are some of the most intriguing drinks that will make your Easter a “hoppy” holiday.
Bobby Flay’s Grand Champagne Cocktail is a more sophisticated version of a mimosa. Instead of combining orange juice with champagne, this cocktail uses Grand Marnier and sweetens the drink with a touch of honey and in-season strawberries. The resulting drink is a light pink treat that you can sip at your Easter brunch.
Madtini’s White Rabbit Cocktail is a creamy, almond-flavored version of a white Russian. This drink mixes Kahlua, amaretto, white rum, half and half and Irish crème to create the concoction. Try it on the rocks in an old fashioned glass to chill out after Easter activities.
Feast of Fun’s Easter Basket Cocktail is a cocktail that has the look of a pastel Easter basket, complete with a marshmallow chick for a garnish. Presentation is the key to this creamy, cherry-flavored drink. It is served in a martini glass that has been rimmed with green-dyed shredded coconut and a marshmallow chick on the rim. The pink color of this cocktail comes from a small splash of grenadine added for sweetness and color to the triple sec, half and half and cherry vodka combination.
Team Cocktail’s Marshmallow Vodka Martini is a flavorful dessert cocktail. It seems like at Easter, all of the sweet treats are marshmallow flavored or inspired, and this cocktail is no exception. This marshmallow-flavored drink uses marshmallow-flavored vodka, which is sold at liquor stores alongside other flavored vodkas. It uses heavy whipping cream for added body and creaminess and rum for a boost. You can garnish it with one or two marshmallow chicks or bunnies if you desire.
French 75 at The Nibble is a pastel drink that would be perfectly at home as an after dinner delight following a high-class Easter meal. Mix up this basic recipe of gin that you sweeten with a simple syrup and brighten with a touch of lemon juice. Serve it with a flower garnish to heighten the spring feel of this pastel yellow drink.
Enjoy some festive drinks this Easter in addition to your feast when you sip on these tasty cocktails.
