Easter cocktail recipes for bareboats
Move over mimosa! We’ve got some delightfully cheeky Easter-themed cocktails to tempt your tastebuds this April. And the best part, is that they’re all easily made either by building or in a cocktail shaker, so they’re perfect for your Easter bareboat holiday.
For the kids, have some chocolate or vanilla milk, and lemonade on hand, and you can mix them up some mocktails that look similar.
Chocolate Easter Egg
30ml Baileys or Mozart chocolate liqueur
30ml vanilla vodka
Combine all liquids in a cocktail shaker with ice. Shake, strain and serve, with an easter egg at the bottom of the glass as an after drink surprise.
Hot Cross Bun
30ml spiced rum
20ml butterscotch schnapps
10ml Fireball whiskey
Combine all liquids in a cocktail shaker with ice. Shake, strain and serve. Garnish: cross two straws over the glass and shake cinnamon over to leave a cross.
20ml lemon juice
10ml lime cordial
1 egg white
Add all the ingredients to a shaker and shake without ice. Add ice and shake again. Strain slowly into a chilled glass. Squeeze an orange peel over the drink and then discard it.
Easter Bunny Cocktail
30ml vanilla vodka
30ml White Chocolate Mozart
15ml chocolate syrup
15ml caramel syrup
Add all ingredients, shake and double strain. Before pouring, swirl chocolate syrup around the edge of the cocktail glass. Serve with a smile.
Strawberry Limoncello Spritzer
1-2 sliced strawberries
30ml limoncello liquor
Prosecco, Moscato or Champagne
Long strips of lemon zest
In champagne glasses, add the sliced strawberries. Pour limoncello over the berries, and then fill the remaining glass with the champagne. Top with a few strips of lemon zest.
1/3 carrot juice
Carrot stems or parsley sprigs for garnish
Combine carrot juice and prosecco in a champagne flute and top with sprigs of carrot or parsley.
To get the carrot stems or parsley sprigs to stand upright in the glass, snip a paper straw to about two inches in length, slip two or three stems inside, and set in the champagne glass.
If you want to mix up some of these Easter cocktails on a bareboat, remember to bring your cocktail shaker set, or if you don’t have one of those, an everyday protein shaker will also do the job!
