I was shopping the other day and came upon this delightful marshmallow skewer. The delightful pastel colored marshmallows are so Eastery, don’t you think?
I found mine at TJ Maxx, but if your store doesn’t have them, they could be easily made with skewers and fancy marshmallows. As soon as I saw it, I knew that some fun Easter drinks were destined to be in my future.
I pulled off a pretty marshmallow and two of the Licorice Allsorts.
A quick cut with a pair of kitchen shears and some blue tipped cocktail sticks and my drink garnish is ready!l
I moistened the rims of two champagne glasses with lemon and dipped them into some chopped up sprinkles.
The sprinkles go along with the licorice Allsorts and give the drink a fun Easter look.
Blue Curacao gives the pretty color to this Easter drink. It has a slightly bitter orange flavor and is used in other cocktails like the Blue Hawaiian and Blue Bird. It’s perfect for this Midnight Kiss Cocktail.
Lemons add a nice tang, as well!
They get added to vodka, and champagne go in a cocktail shaker with some ice. A few quick shakes and you have the pretty Easter Midnight Kiss, just ready to be garnished with the Easter treats.
As is the case with so many holiday cocktails, the garnish can make or break it. See dozens for Halloween cocktail garnishes for ideas for another holiday.
Time to taste test!
The drink is tart from the champagne and has a nice smooth finish from the vodka. Look at the pretty rims! Every sip gives you a bit of crunchy sweetness.
The only problem with this cocktail is that you might not remember where the Easter eggs have been hidden if you have too many!
