Easter 2020 is certainly going to be a little different for everyone around the world this year. With COVID-19 cases increasing daily and the Stay At Home order in full effect, there will be no big gatherings with loved ones this Easter. In our house, our Sunday finest will be replaced by sweat pants and PJs and prime rib dinner replaced by a microwavable meal (or whatever Grubhub will bring us).
However, I absolutely will still be enjoying a spring cocktail or two this weekend and so I have complied this list of some of my favorites.
*Disclaimer - You will not find any Peeps any where near my cocktails! That s**t is nasty!
1. Frozen Peach Bellini
The perfect compliment to Easter brunch and super easy to make. I like to add a touch of Peach Schnapps too for a little extra sumin sumin.

This white fluffy cocktail tastes as sweet as it looks. The coconut rum and pineapple combo adds a tropical touch, perfect for sipping on a rainy Easter Sunday, dreaming of the day we can travel to far off lands once more.

This one is a fave for two reasons. Firstly, the carrot and ginger juice tastes so fresh and healthy I can almost convince my self this cocktail is good for me. Secondly, this drink packs a punch and so is perfect for taking the edge off Aunt Susan's constant questioning of when we are going to have a baby, which inevitably happens at every family gathering. This year there will be no gathering but the questioning will still come in the form of a Zoom call and we will be ready for it with this margy.

Gin and grapefruit are a match made in heaven. It really is a perfect combo of the botanicals in the gin, the tart grapefruit balanced by the sweetness of the fragrant rosemary simple. This cocktail is just heaven. It is one of my all time faves. If you are feeling fancy, add a splash of prosecco instead of the soda water. BOOM! Winner!

I was going to keep the list to my fave 5 but how could I not include a chocolate cocktail for Easter. This drink is so over indulgent, chocolaty, boozy deliciousness but Easter calories don't count right?
