Get your hands and creative genius ready for this yum-ful Easter cocktails recipes:
1. Bunny Cocktail.
You’ll need vodka. Choose from a wide range of vodka brands available from Just Miniatures. Check out Tito’s Handmade Vodka for a handcrafted option, The Lakes Vodka for a more contemporary take on a classic, or go traditional with a Russian Standard Plain Vodka. Next, you will also need a chocolate liqueur. Check out the Mozart Dark Chocolate Liqueur for a full out indulgence or the Aber Falls Coffee & Dark Chocolate Liqueur.
Simply add both spirits according to taste in a tall cocktail glass. Add chocolate, caramel and vanilla syrup as additional flavourings as you prefer. Give it a light stir and enjoy.
2. Berry and Citrus Spritzer.
This is one of the easiest and most colourful Easter treats to make. You’ll need a rejuvenating mix of strawberries, blueberries, blackberries, oranges, lime, and lemon. You will also need 2 tablespoons of lime juice and honey, and about a cup of soda water. Prepare about ⅓ cup of Cointreau Triple Sec Liqueur or a Grand Marnier Orange Liqueur.
Choose from these labels of dry rose wine: McGuigan Black Label Rose Wine, Jacobs Creek Shiraz Rose Wine, and Patriarche Syrah Rose Wine Single Serve.
3. Watermelon Piña Coladas.
Since summer is just around the corner, why not go all out on simple Easter cocktails with this beachfront all-time favourite? Treat your household members to this treat that’s guaranteed to be an Easter hit.
To achieve the wonderful flavours in this drink, you’ll need frozen watermelon, and pineapple slices. After several minutes, throw the fruit slices in a blender, add coconut milk, and choose your own poison depending on your kind of tipple. While any type of spirit can be added, rum, whether white or spiced, is highly recommended. Check out The Kraken Black Spiced Rum, Sailor Jerry Spiced Caribbean Rum, and Alnwick Dark Rum.
Blend all ingredients together with lots of ice cubes. Don’t forget to save a few slices of pineapples and watermelons for garnishing.
4. Frozen Peach Bellini.
In case access to fresh produce is proving to be challenging where you are and all you have are canned peaches and a tetra pack of mango nectar, well, guess what? That’s all you need. This is perhaps the easiest cocktail to make from this list of 5 Easter treats DIY.
First, throw those canned peaches and mango nectar in the freezer. Meanwhile, chill your prosecco, make sure you have plenty of ice cubes, and prep the blender. Once ready, simply blend all the ingredients together and serve your drink in a tall glass.
