Easter Brunch Cocktails

blogTraditions… everybody’s got ‘em. And while most traditions are in place for good reason, something tells me sparkling wine and mimosas on Easter is just begging to be broken.

Easter may not truly be about egg hunts, a generous, gift-loaded bunny or chocolate, but those sure do make it fun. Easter is about rising up from a bad situation; it’s about hope and revival. So let’s apply that theory to Easter celebrations everywhere!blog2

You’re officially invited to break out of your Easter brunch habits and go for something refreshing. This Raspberry Beer Cocktail is sure to infuse some life back into your Easter soirée. Beer-tails are such a tasty way to elevate a dinner party, a casual brunch, Saturday grill-out or even a wedding. Just find flavors that echo each other well (sour limes and tart raspberries, anyone?).blog4

The smell of the fresh raspberries, combined with the zing from the lime in the Corona, finished with the sweet lemonade made this drink absolutely irresistible. Seriously, it was good. Feel free to garnish with Peeps instead of biting their heads off like we did when we concocted this beauty.

Here’s what to do:

Ingredients

1/2 cup + a handful of raspberries, fresh or frozen

2 bottles of corona, chilled

1/2 container frozen raspberry lemonade concentrate, thawed

1/4 cup Tito’s Handmade Vodka

Directions: In a large bowl, pitcher or container, stir together ingredients. Serve over ice.           Garnish with raspberries. Serves 2.
