Remember, the key to a successful soirée is having fun, so don't be afraid to experiment and put your own twist on these recipes. With these cocktails in hand, you'll be the ultimate host, and your guests will be talking about your fantastic autumn Easter gathering for years to come.


Can I prepare these cocktails in advance?

Most of these cocktails can be prepared in advance, with the exception of the ones that include sparkling ingredients, such as Prosecco or soda water. For those, it's best to add the sparkling components just before serving to maintain their fizz.

How can I make my own lavender syrup?

Making lavender syrup is simple! Combine equal parts water and sugar in a saucepan, and add a few tablespoons of dried lavender. Heat the mixture gently until the sugar dissolves, then let it cool before straining out the lavender. Store your homemade syrup in the fridge and use it to add a lovely floral touch to your cocktails.

How can I perfectly garnish my Easter cocktails?

Garnish not only levels up the look of your cocktails but also adds to the overall flavour. You can use fresh herbs, fruit slices, edible flowers, or even shaped ice cubes to make your cocktails stand out.

When choosing your garnish, consider the flavours in your drink, and select something that complements or contrasts them. A sprig of rosemary would work well with the Autumn Bunny, while a sprinkle of crushed chocolate easter eggs would make the Carrot Cake Martini extra festive.

So, go on and have a blast! Let these fantastic Easter cocktails light up your autumn gatherings, and don't forget to share your own cocktails and experiences with us.
