These 10 Easter cocktails will keep everyone relaxed and satisfied throughout the holiday.
- Menning Mimosa
This recipe from Martha Stewart uses 6 tablespoons of orange juice with chilled Prosecco to create a sparkling brunch favorite. Add 2 tablespoons each of orange liqueur and lemon juice, and garnish with a mint leaf. Serve it up in a tall champagne glass.
- Prosecco Lemonade
Mix your favorite sparkling wine with lemonade and a splash of vodka to give this bright drink its punch. You can adorn it with fresh berries or a sprig of mint. Keep it chilled in a pitcher over ice and allow guests to help themselves as needed.
- Champagne Sorbet
This adult version of the classic Root Beer float can be the perfect treat to accompany your meal, as a drink or a dessert. Add whatever flavor you please with a scoop of sweet sorbet over a glass of your favorite champagne.
- Carrot Margarita
If you want to serve a cocktail that even the Easter bunny would love, consider a carrot-inspired margarita. With 4 ounces of carrot juice, 2 ounces of tequila, and a bit of Grand Marnier, you’ve got a one-of-a-kind drink your guests can never forget.
- Grapefruit Paloma
With a cocktail shaker, mix up fresh grapefruit juice and tequila to prepare this Mexican classic. Rim the glass, using lime juice and a bit of salt, and then drop in a slice of fresh grapefruit to make it even more refreshing.
- Peep Mojito
If you’re going for festive, then this is one of the most whimsical Easter drinks you can serve. Made with flavored vodka, lemonade, and club soda, this citrusy concoction is best garnished with a Peep marshmallow and a touch of mint.
- Moscato Limeade
The best Moscato wine comes together with a classic cherry limeade in this bold interpretation. Use any fruit flavoring you like with a lemon-lime soda and your choice of fantastic wine. A bubbly drink never tasted this good.
- Jellybean Sangria
You can put that basket of jellybeans to good use with this bright cocktail. Chop up whatever fresh fruit you like and mix it with red wine and brandy. Drop in a few well-chosen jellybeans to add even more flavor and sweetness, not to mention a fun Easter flair.
- Peach Bellini
Puree a few peaches with some water and sugar to create the base for this fruity cocktail. Add sparkling white wine to bring the drink together. If you don’t like peaches, you can substitute strawberries or mangoes.
