One of the best ways to get through any holiday is with alcohol. A key to creating an Easter drink is using pastel liquors. Chocolate cocktails also work for an Easter drink since chocolate bunnies are a popular Easter treat.
The Easter bunny cocktail is a strong chocolate cocktail. Shake 1 ½ oz (45ml) dark crème de cacao with ½ oz (15ml) vodka over ice. Strain the alcohol over the ice into an old-fashioned glass. Float a teaspoon of chocolate syrup and a teaspoon of cherry brandy on top.
Easter Egg Cocktail
The Easter egg cocktail blends blue and white for a brightly colored drink. Pour 1 oz blue curacao (30ml) and 1 oz (30ml) white crème de cacao over ice in an old-fashioned glass. Float a dash of half and half on top to taste.
This blue-colored drink is a very strong cocktail. Shake 1 ½ oz (45ml) vodka, ½ oz (15ml) triple sec, ¼ oz (10ml) blue curacao and strain into a chilled martini glass. Flame an orange peel over the glass for a garnish. To flame an orange peel, you need to first cut a twist of orange and hold it very carefully so as not to lose the juice. Hold the twist by the side, skin side down, about 3 or 4 inches above the drink. Light a match and hold it between the drink and twist. Snap the orange peel sharply, which will send the oil through the fire and onto the top of the drink. This is flamed orange peel.
Pastel pink is another perfect Easter color and emulsified egg white adds a foamy touch. Shake 1 ½ oz (45ml) gin, ½ oz (15ml) simple syrup, ¾ oz (20ml) lemon juice, 2 dashes crème de framboise and a small egg white without ice. This will emulsify the egg. Shake the ingredients again, this time over ice. Strain into an old fashioned glass. You can add muddled mint leaves as a garnish for an extra touch.
This cocktail uses crème de menthe for a green grass color. Shake 1 ½ oz (45ml) gin, 1 oz (30ml) triple sec, ¾ oz (20ml) lime juice, a dash of anise liqueur and a dash of crème de menthe over ice. Strain into a cocktail glass and serve. For a truly distinctive Easter touch, place a yellow marshmallow bunny on the glass as a garnish.
White Chocolate Easter-tini
This slightly fancier cocktail is a delicious after dinner drink option. Shake 1 oz (30ml) vanilla vodka, 1 oz (30ml) half and half, 1 oz (30ml) white chocolate liqueur and 2 oz (60ml) of eggnog over ice. Strain into a martini glass. Drop a few jellybeans into the bottom of the glass to look like Easter eggs.
Following the theme of bright colors in Easter drinks, this cocktail has a citrus color like a beautiful Easter sunrise. Pour ½ oz (15ml) orange liqueur, 1 oz (30ml) gin, 1 dash grenadine syrup, 1 dash lemon juice over ice in a cocktail shaker and shake well. Strain into a cocktail glass.
