Easter Cocktails

Serve Pastel Colors With Spring-Like Garnishes

 

Serve seasonal pastel cocktails for Easter with recipes courtesy of Martin Miller’s Gin.

The names of the cocktails may not be Easter-like, but when you think that a drink called the Easter Bunny consists of 1-1/2 ounces dark Crème de Cacao, 1/2 ounce vodka, 1 teaspoon chocolate syrup and 1 teaspoon cherry brandy—that’s just an alcoholic Easter basket!

These cocktails provide a little sweetness with a lot more sophistication!
