Easter is just around the corner — but when you’re an adult, you don’t really get to hunt eggs or enjoy a chocolate-filled basket anymore. So, how to best celebrate this brunch-y day in a more grownup fashion?
Well, the answer is the drink alcohol that is infused with Easter candy, obviously.
Here are some cocktails that will most assuredly cause you to forget where you hid your Easter eggs. And I mean that in the best possible way. (And don’t worry — you’re definitely still allowed to eat candy, too).
1. These Cadbury Cream Egg shots.
Can a shot really be as simple as pouring booze into chocolate candy?? Apparently so.
This fluffy, sugary cocktail bears a striking resemblance to a bunny’s tail.
3. A carrot mimosa (or two).
Colorful, festive and utterly addictive — drink wisely.
4. This delightful jelly bean martini.
Yes, jelly bean-infused vodka is a thing. You’re welcome (I think).
5. Some boozy chocolate bunny shots.
Again, the combination of chocolate and liqueur is simple, potent and totally effective. You may find yourself wanting more than one.
6. A cottontail martini, topped with a marshmallow.
This decadent coconut cocktail is topped with a single marshmallow, which is just an added treat for everybody.
This refreshing and spicy cocktail makes use of carrot juice, cumin and bourbon — so it may knock your damn socks off.
8. The hilariously-named “Peeptini.”
Honestly? This cocktail is just as simple as garnishing a colorful and sweet martini with a peep — which is a blessing, because who wants to actually drink anything Peep-flavored?
9. A mug of unicorn hot chocolate.
This recipe is non-alcoholic, but it’d be a cinch to add a bit of your favorite booze to this pastel cocktail, which is like Easter candy for adults.
10. This festive spring margarita — a “Carrot Easter-ita.”
Who knew that carrot juice could complement a margarita so well?
11. Some rainbow Jell-O Easter eggs.
Turn these wobbly eggs into Jell-O shots by mixing the gelatin packets with your alcohol of choice.
12. Whip up some boozy watermelon popsicles.
Just another reason watermelon is the best fruit ever: you can infuse it with booze.
13. A fleet of Peep-stuffed Jell-O shots.
These jello shots are infused with vanilla yogurt and topped with Peeps for a sugary sandwich of deliciousness.
