How to Make an Easter Basket Cocktail

Published March 30, 2013 by

Can’t make it to Disney for a pineapple Dole whip with rum this Easter?

How about creating your own Easter Basket cocktail from home?

Rim a martini glass with thick simple syrup and then dip into dyed green coconut flakes, then adorn with a little marshmallow peep. Think of it as your very own adult Easter Basket.

Prepare the glasses ahead of time and put them on a tray decorated with jelly beans and other seasonal delights for a stunning effect.

For the cocktail:

* 1 1/2 ounces Cherry Vodka
* 1/2 ounce Triple Sec
* 3 ounces Half and Half or Milk
* Dash Grenadine

Shake with ice until chilled. Pour into decorated glasses and serve.

  • My mother makes an Easter cake every year. Yellow cake with crushed pineapple and white frosting in between the layers, white frosting on the outside, covered with coconut. Then she makes a little nest of green-colored coconut and decorates with jellybeans and peeps. I’m thinking I could recreate that cake as a cocktail, by using your decorations, and a pineapple upside down cake cocktail recipe. (1.5 oz cake-flavored vodka, 3 oz pineapple juice, splash grenadine or maraschino cherry juice). Thanks for the inspiration!
