Easter cocktail recipes for bareboats

By on February 16th, 2018

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

30ml cream

Easter egg

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

(inspired by this)

30ml spiced rum

20ml butterscotch schnapps

10ml Fireball whiskey

30ml cream

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.


Midori Sour


30ml midori

30ml gin.

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

30ml cream

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.


Carrot “Juice” 


1/3 carrot juice

2/3 prosecco

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!
