Easter brunch, late lunch, or early dinner — you must celebrate with cocktails
 
This Easter, how about raising a toast with a Bunny Boiler Maker or a Creme Egg Cocktail? These are just some of the festive innovations to regular cocktails that bartenders are serving up on Sunday. For instance, there’s the Creme Egg mojito, which has been created by mixologist Jack Williams, is a mix of chocolate and rum liqueur. To make it, a mint sprig is first bruised in a glass with some rum and chocolate liqueur. Sugar syrup and limejuice are added to the mix, as is some crushed ice, a crushed Cadbury Creme Egg. It's topped off with more crushed ice, soda and half a Creme Egg. The decadent drink has a calorie count of 987!
 
If you want to stick to cocktails of the regular variety, you can’t go wrong with a Bloody Mary or a classic Mimosa to accompany Easter brunch.
