Traditionally many families will gather for a special brunch while the children hunt for Easter eggs in the yard. Typically a mimosa would accompany a beautiful brunch for the adults of the family. But, some of our friends at Fossil Creek Liquor never lost their sweet tooth and although we may be long past the years of childhood who says adults can’t enjoy our very own Easter treats. For those adults that like to indulge their sweet tooth and don’t want to give up the delights of an extra sweet holiday we have our very own Easter Basket.
1 ½ ounces of Cherry Vodka
½ ounce of triple sec
3 ounces of half and half
A Dash of grenadine
Green food dye
Jelly Beans – We prefer Jelly Belly
Rim a martini glass with thick simple syrup and dip into coconut flakes dyed with green food dye. Fill a cocktail shaker with ice. Next add 1 ½ ounces of cherry vodka, ½ an ounce of triple sec, 3 ounces of half and half along with a dash of grenadine in your cocktail shaker and shake well until ingredients are well chilled. Place your glasses on a tray surrounded by jelly beans and a few peeps. We recommend Jelly Bellys because they are more delicious. Pour the ingredients while straining from your cocktail mixer into the glass. Add one Peep to the rim of your glass and serve while still chilled.
