Easter cocktails that you can make for Easter because it's Easter

It's an important calendar date and therefore the only way to celebrate is with themed drinks. It's true of Christmas, it's true of Valentines, it's true of Sneak Some Zucchini Onto Your Neighbour's Porch Day and now it's true of Easter.

So, if you need some inspiration for drinks to make on Good Friday, Easter Sunday, Easter Monday, or even that random, totally normal Saturday in the middle of it all, here are some appropriate drinks I created to mark the occasion.

Note: Before you even think about reading these recipes, please stock up on Creme De Cacao.
