Easter Cocktails: Egg-celent Drinks For Adults

Throwing an Easter party? While the kids are away (hunting eggs perhaps?) the adults will play.

Here are some great Easter themed cocktails:
  1. The Blue Cottontail:
Here’s a bright and springy drink that will leave your guests begging for the recipe.
Ingredients Per Cocktail:
1-1/2 ounces vodka
½ ounce triple sec
¼ ounce blue Curacao
Flamed orange peel (for garnish)
Shake all ingredients well, serve chilled with the flamed orange peel over the glass.


  1. Pink Bonnet:
This drink not only includes an egg white in honor of the Easter spirit but also is pastel pink and perfect.
Ingredients Per Cocktail:
1-1/2 ounces gin
½ ounce simple syrup
¾ ounce lemon juice
2 dashes of crème de framboise or grenadine (this give it the beautiful color)
White of a small egg (you can use a pasteurized egg or two tablespoons of egg white substitute- the egg attributes to the cloudy coloring)
Shake all ingredients before adding ice to break up the egg white and create the cloudy color of the drink. Add ice and shake again. Serve with mint leaves if desired.

Ingredients Per Cocktail:
1 ounce vanilla vodka
1 ounce cream
1 ounce white chocolate liqueur

2 ounce white crème de cacao
A splash of half and half
