Easter Cocktails

Hi everyone,

Happy Friday! As Easter is quickly approaching, I thought that today would be the perfect day to share some fun and festive cocktails with you. These all have a strong candy theme to them, so that being said, let’s get into it.

The first cocktail we have is Speckled Egg Mimosas. This is a very pretty cocktail and has a great mix of sweetness and freshness.

What You Need:

  • 1/2 cup of sugar
  • 2 cups of water
  • 8 blackberries
  • 1 bottle of champagne
  • 1 bag of speckled egg candy
  • 1 handful of edible flowers

What You Do:

  • So the first thing you’re going to do is grab a pot and add water, then bring that to a boil. Once your water is boiling add in your sugar and stir until the sugar has dissolved. When your sugar has dissolved add the blackberries and muddle. Simmer for 3-5 minutes then remove from heat.
  • Allow your syrup to cool and once it has strain into a pitcher.
  • Then grab your glasses and place 3 speckled eggs in the bottom of each glass. To that add one shot, or 2 ounces, of the blackberry simple syrup to each glass and fill the rest of the way with champagne.
  • Garnish with the edible flowers.
  • Serve and enjoy!

The next cocktail we have is Cotton Candy Margaritas. Although cotton candy can be very sweet, this isn’t a drink that’s too sweet.

What You Need:

  • 3/4 cup of tequila
  • 1/2 cup of fresh squeezed lime juice
  • 1/2 cup of cream soda
  • 1/4 cup of orange liqueur
  • 1 package of cotton candy
  • Ice
  • Lime wedges

What You Do:

  • In a mason jar, combine your tequila, lime juice, cream soda and orange liqueur. Shake that very well, making sure it’s well combined.
  • Take your glasses and fill them about 3/4 of the way with cotton candy and pour the drink over until the glass is roughly half full.
  • Top that with ice and stir to combine.
  • Garnish with a lime wedge.
  • Serve and enjoy!

The second to last cocktail we have is Blood Orange Mimosas. I love a good mimosa and this one is super fresh. This recipe does make a pitcher.

What You Need:

  • 10 to 12 blood oranges, juiced. This makes about 2 1/2 cups of juice
  • 1 bottle of chilled sparkling wine
  • 8 to 10 pieces of blood orange peel, twisted for garnish

What You Do:

  • The first thing you’re going to do is take your blood orange juice and pour it in your pitcher. I would recommend doing this a couple hours before serving so you can keep it chilled in the fridge until you’re ready to serve.
  • Then add in your chilled sparkling wine and stir combine. Pour into your glasses and top with your twisted blood orange peel.
  • Serve and enjoy!

The last cocktail we have is the Pink Jelly Bean. This cocktail is a really pretty color and super simple to make.

What You Need:

  • 1 ounce of vanilla vodka
  • 3 ounces of chilled ginger ale
  • 1 teaspoon of grenadine or maraschino cherry juice
  • Ice
  • Pink jelly beans

What You Do:

  • The first thing you’re going to do is take your glass and fill it with ice. Then pour in the vodka, ginger ale and grenadine/cherry juice and stir to combine.
  • Then take 3 or 4 pink jelly beans and put then on a skewer. Place that in your drink to garnish.
  • Serve and enjoy!

That about wraps it up for this post, if you guys have any favorite Easter cocktails I’d love to know what they are.

Until next time, have fun making drinks and I hope you all have a great Easter :).
