5 Festive Easter-Themed Cocktails For Your Sunday Brunch

Nothing says Easter morning like a nice brunch, and nothing says brunch like some cocktails. When we think Easter morning we think of colorful Easter eggs, chocolate bunnies, jelly beans, peeps and tons more fun things. This year you can spice up your Easter brunch with some fun cocktails by incorporating some of your favorite Easter candy classics into your drink.

Try making one of these 5 cocktails:


1. Easter on Easter Island

A chocolate bunny is an Easter basket staple. Instead of eating it or freezing it and saving it for later, do something fun with it: turn it into a cocktail! Take that hollow chocolate bunny and turn it into a glass that holds your delicious cocktail. This cocktail is the nice blend of sweet and refreshing, perfect for a dessert cocktail during brunch.

Here’s the recipe:

  • 1 handful mint leaves
  • 1 handful Crushed Ice
  • 1 measure coconut cream
  • 1/2 measure lime
  • 2 measures dark rum
  • 2 measures creme de cacao

Here are the directions:
Start by chopping off the ears of the chocolate bunny to create an opening for your glass. Next, add coconut cream, lime and mint leaves into the shaker. Then, add dark rum, creme de cacao and crushed ice to the shaker. Shake well! Lastly, fill the chocolate bunny with some crushed ice, strain and add your mixture into the chocolate bunny and enjoy! Feel free to garnish the cocktail with mint leaves or edible flowers before serving.


2. Easter Bunny Mimosa

The bunny rabbit has become the symbol for all things Easter, hence the Easter bunny. And what do bunny rabbits typically love? Carrots! And what is a brunch cocktail classic? A mimosa! So, we introduce to you: a carrot inspired mimosa. This cocktail is your classic mimosa mixed with carrot juice, making it your new Easter brunch staple. Enjoy your morning cocktail all while getting a serving of vegetables in.

Here’s the recipe:

  • 1 cup of orange juice
  • 1 cup of carrot juice
  • 500ml sparkling wine or prosecco
  • 4 carrot tops for decoration (optional)

Here are the directions:
This recipe typically serves 4 people. Mix all of these ingredients into a pitcher and evenly distribute the mixture amongst the champagne flutes. For a festive garnish, feel free to add a carrot top into each champagne flute.


3. Cottontail Mojito

Every Easter basket is bound to have at least one pack of Peeps in it, right? You know, those sugary marshmallow treats would make the perfect garnish for an Easter-inspired cocktail. If you are looking for a sweet and fruity cocktail on Easter morning, the cottontail mojito is perfect for you.

Here are the ingredients:

  • Bacardi
  • Hibiscus simple syrup
  • Fresh Lime Juice
  • Club soda
  • Garnished with a Peep and Sprig of Mint

4. Raspberry Ripple

Who doesn’t love a cocktail that tastes just like candy, right?! The raspberry ripple cocktail will have you reminiscing of the times when you used to get your Easter basket and quickly eat all of your favorite candy. This cocktail has sweet flavors of raspberry, chocolate and vanilla. If you want to make this cocktail even more festive, you can serve it cold in two halves of a hollow chocolate Easter egg, but a martini glass with some garnish also works just fine.

Here’s the recipe:

  • 25ml Raspberry vodka
  • 25ml Creme de cacao white
  • 10ml ODK vanilla syrup
  • 50ml Half & Half (or substitute with almond milk & oat cream)
  • 1 Egg white

Here are the directions:
Add the raspberry vodka, creme de cacao white, ODK vanilla syrup and half & half into a shaker along with some ice. Shake well. Next, strain the mixture into another cocktail without the ice. Then, add the egg white into the mixture and dry-shake it. (shake with no ice). Lastly, strain, serve and enjoy!
**Don’t be hesitant about using an egg white in your cocktail. Egg whites are often used to make the concoctions foamy and creamy, which is exactly the texture that is needed for this delicious drink.


5. Blueberry Mojito Royale

This fruity and refreshing cocktail is the perfect way to start off your Easter brunch. The Blueberry mojito royale is different than the rest of the cocktails mentioned above: it isn’t overly sweet, sugary or chocolatey, it is refreshing and definitely the pick me up you might need on Sunday. Sure, this cocktail is perfect for Easter brunch, but this cocktail is also perfect for a warm spring or summer day. Add this recipe to your list of cocktails you drink all-year round.

Here’s the recipe:

  • Handfull of blueberries
  • 6-8 mint leaves
  • 1 tbsp sugar
  • 2.5 tbsps of fresh lime juice
  • 50 ml light rum
  • Prosecco and champagne

Here are the directions:
Start by muddling a handful of blueberries, mint leaves, sugar and lime juice together in a glass. Next, fill your glass with crushed ice and pour the light rum over top. Make sure to stir well so that the muddled ingredients can make their way to the top. Next, top off the drink with some chilled prosecco and champagne. Feel free to add however much or however little you want here. For a garnish, try some blueberries, mint leaves or a lime slice.
