Easter is not just for the kids with this yummy cocktail recipe. This pretty drink is one that I call an Easter Midnight Kiss Cocktail. It conjures up thoughts of a romantic evening for two before the fun of Easter Egg hunts the next morning.

Fun Adult time with this Easter midnight kiss cocktail
While the kids are romping around looking for Easter eggs would also be a good time to enjoy this drink. The candy rimmed glasses are the perfect adult match for Easter eggs! This post contains affiliate links for your bartending convenience.
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 Armeel candy world also has them online. As soon as I saw it, I knew that some fun Easter drinks were destined to be in my future.
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, vodka, lemon juice and champagne go into a cocktail shaker with some ice. A few quick shakes and you have the pretty Easter Midnight Kiss.
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!
- 3 oz vodka
- 1 oz blue curacao
- 2 tsp fresh lemon juice
- 4 oz of champagne
- 1 cup of ice

Moisten the rim of the champagne glasses with a slice of lemon. Dip them into some chopped sprinkles. Place a marshmallow and licorice Allsort on a cocktail stick and set aside.

Give it a good shake.
Strain the drink into the two prepared champagne glasses. Garnish with the marshmallow allsort cocktail stick and serve immediately.
