1. Mini Egg Martini

For an Easter cocktail that really leans into the theme with gusto, we love the Mini Egg Martini. Begin by crushing a handful of mini chocolate eggs using a pestle and mortar, then scoop the crushed eggs onto a small plate. Take a martini glass and lightly brush the rim with honey using a pastry brush. Dip the rim of the glass into the crushed chocolate eggs to create a decorative coating, and place the glass in the fridge to chill until it’s time to serve.  

To make the cocktail, combine 1 oz crème de cacao, 1 oz cream liqueur, 1.5 oz SKYY Vodka, a teaspoon of honey syrup, and ice in a cocktail shaker. Shake until frosty, strain into the prepared glass, and serve.

Stir until the flavors are well combined, then pour the mixture into serving glasses. Top it off with club soda and you’ve got yourself a unique and refreshing batch cocktail to serve this Easter.
