Easter Basket Cocktail

Mar 20, 2008 · 2037692 views

Gayer than a Cosmopolitan? Yep! It’s not really the drink that makes it gay but rather how it is served.

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, but instead of being filled with candy, it’s filled with booze!

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.

  3. Keep in mind you can add one or two jellybeans to the bottom of the glass for a little easter surprise at the end of the drink!

    I want to make a large pitcer of the martini. Do you have measurements for larger quantities. (Yes, I don’t want to do th math and am hoping you already did!)
