Drinks for Two #9: Easter-ning into Spring

So you're hosting an Easter family gathering and everyone's looking to you for a creative drink to reflect the Easter merriment.

Cadbury Easter Egg

3/4 oz. Cream de Cacao
1/2 oz. Bailey's Caramel
Fill 10% Cream

When someone mentions "Easter" do you think of the resurrection of Christ? The circle of life? The blooming spring flowers? No, you think of Cadbury easter eggs in all their chocolaty goodness.

Peep Cocktail

3/4 oz. Rum
1/2 oz. Triple Sec
Fill Grapefruit juice

It's just not Easter without the lovable marshmallow chicks that you always buy but never really enjoy eating. Some traditions just aren't meant to be understood. At least you can still enjoy the drink version of the puffed sugar nausea.
