Tie One On Tuesday

C'mon parents, you can level with me, you need a little cocktail to get through that Easter egg hunt coming up this Sunday. It's okay, we won't judge you. You're among friends. As a matter of fact, I will help you make up  cocktails to get you through the day.

Raise you hand if you like peeps? Again, we won't judge you. Now, raise your hand if you want a peep cocktail. That's what I thought!

Where's My Peeps Cocktail
2 ounces fluffed marshmallow vodka
1/4 ounce vanilla syrup
1 ounce light cream (not heavy whipping cream)
Pour vodka, syrup and cream in a cocktail shaker with ice. Shake and serve in a chilled martini glass, Serve with a peep on the side. 

Little girls in pink and white dresses are just too cute for words unless they are dive bombing, kicking and punching their way to that hidden Easter egg. For those little princesses, you need the Pink Torpedo. 

Pink Torpedo (via yumsugar)
 2 cups vodka, chilled
1 1/2 pints strawberries, hulled and sliced
2 teaspoons granulated sugar
One bottle sparkling wine or sparkling water, chilled 
In a large bowl, stir together the vodka, two-thirds of the sliced strawberries and the granulated sugar. Cover with plastic wrap and let stand at room temperature until the vodka turns pink, about 6 hours.
Fill glasses with ice. Strain the vodka and divide among the glasses.
Add a splash of limoncello to each glass and top off with the sparkling wine or sparkling water. Garnish with the remaining strawberry slices.

Who doesn't love eating the ears off the chocolate bunny rabbit? You know you love it but then you feel guilty cause the bunny no longer has ears and just sits and stares at you until you eat that candy eye. Here's a chocolate bunny with none of the guilt (unless you have about six of them, then....yeah, you might feel guilty)

Chocolate Bunny Cocktail
1 tsp Cherry Liqueur
2 oz Brown Creme de Cacao
1oz Vodka
1 tsp Chocolate Syrup
Shake vodka and Creme de Cacao with ice. Strain over ice in a cocktail glass.
Pour chocolate syrup and cherry liqueur on top, as a float.

Ahh....don't you feel more relaxed? No more screaming, no crying, no kicking-and that's just the guy in the bunny suit. These beverages will relax you will the chaos known as the Easter egg hunt unfolds around you. You're welcome!
