Easter is a special time for many people to check in with their habits, come together with friends and family, and celebrate their faith.
And if you are a fan of celebrating Easter with festive treats and beverages, you may be interested in learning more about creative Easter cocktails!
These Easter cocktails are bright, spirited, and highly popular for Easter parties and events throughout the spring.
Check out my list of Easter cocktails below.
Mimosas are the perfect addition to a celebratory Easter brunch. You can make them more robust by adding less Champagne and more juice or start your Sunday with a bang by adding more Champagne than OJ.
Either way, it's a delightful, cheery Easter cocktail that goes perfectly with brunch items like eggs benedict and French toast.
The Pink Bunny
The Pink Bunny is a cute and relevant Easter cocktail because of the bunny theme surrounding Easter.
It's essentially a twist on the classic gin and tonic, with a touch of frozen pink lemonade to give it a brightness and sweetness that is to die for. Of course, adding pink sugar and an adorable pink marshmallow bunny on top makes it even more festive.
A Mint Julep is one of my favorite cocktails for Easter because of its sweet and earthy flavors as well as its smooth and velvety texture.
I love the balance between the strong, caramel Southern bourbon and the cooling, fresh mint leaves.
Cottontail Martini is not only a great Easter cocktail but a tasty choice for all of the springtime, given the delicate combination of savory coconut rum and sweet pineapple.
White is a color we often associate with clarity, purity, and freshness, so this crisp white beverage is an inviting drink to serve at an Easter cocktail party.
If you want to bring a slightly edgier drink to the Easter potluck, bring one called Bloody Mary is a bold and satirical idea that some might find comical.
Whether people are intrigued or offended, they'll likely be unable to resist the savory, spicy goodness of this tomato- and vodka-based drink.
If you gave up alcohol for lent, there's even more reason to give one of these Easter cocktails a try, and a classic French 75 is a great start because of its strong, inviting gin taste.
The lemon juice gives it a sweet brightness that fits in with other springtime cocktails, and the Champagne automatically gives it a celebratory feel.
It should come as no surprise that there will be multiple bunny-themed beverages on this list of Easter cocktails, and the Drunk Bunny is one of my favorites!
This drink combines sweet Malibu rum and citrusy strawberry lemonade, making a delightful and refreshing seasonal cocktail.
The Royal Hawaiian is a fantastic Easter cocktail choice, especially if you're celebrating Easter in a tropical vacation destination.
The key flavors are the punchy yellow siblings - pineapple and lemon - which sweeten up the gin in this cocktail for a balanced taste. Also, the purple syrup atop the yellow drink makes it perfect for Easter events!
Cadbury Creme Egg Shots
Cadbury Crème Eggs use these popular Easter-time chocolate candies as a vessel for taking milky vodka shots that are simply irresistible!
They are simple to concoct and hilarious for Easter parties with fun friends and family.
Peeps Raspberry Lemonade Cocktail
Another Easter cocktail that takes advantage of Easter-specific treats is Peeps Raspberry Lemonade Cocktail.
It's a delightful, colorful vodka drink that has fresh, citrusy, and berry flavors throughout and pink bunny marshmallows as cute garnishes.
Easter Bunny Shot
If you liked the sound of chocolate egg shots but appreciate the bunny imagery more than the egg imagery, you can use hollow chocolate bunnies instead!
It's so fun to fill these bunnies with vodka, Irish cream, and strawberries for enjoyable party shots on Easter.
A Gin Rickey is one of my favorite Easter cocktails for its unique blend of gin, lime juice, and sparkling soda.
It carries a slightly bitter and sour taste, but those are balanced by the refreshing carbonation, making a Gin Rickey an excellent way to end the Easter day.
The Paloma is a classic Mexican tequila-based cocktail that is fantastic for Easter celebrations due to its bright flavor and color.
It's the perfect combination of tart and sweet due to the grapefruit juice, lime juice, and agave syrup, making it a great thirst-quenching Easter cocktail that everyone will enjoy.
Easter Bunny Martini
Another bunny-themed drink is a spin on the classic Martini - an Easter Bunny Martini.
Instead of just vodka, this cocktail calls for Irish cream, heavy cream, and chocolate liqueur to make a more decadent drink. You'll feel almost like you're consuming an adult chocolate bunny treat, hence the name!
Heavenly Lemonade Mimosa
I love classic Mimosas that incorporate Champagne and orange juice, but sometimes it's fun to switch things up with the juice involved, especially for holidays!
Pink is a thematic color for Easter, so swapping orange juice for pink lemonade is a great choice, which is exactly what this Heavenly Lemonade Mimosa calls for.
A Pina Colada is one of my favorite holiday cocktails, so I was excited to find this festive Easter version - a Bunny Colada.
It keeps the coconut and rum flavors of the classic, but instead of pineapple, it incorporates strawberry and lemon flavors for a springtime flavor.
Irish Coffee is an easy-to-make but strong coffee cocktail perfect for Easter celebrations.
It's a classic hot cocktail with Irish Whiskey, which is ideal if you're celebrating Easter in a colder environment.
Easter Egg Cocktail
Blue Curaçao, white creme de cacao, and a little half-and-half are all you need to create a bright blue Easter cocktail that'll look gorgeous in the hands of your Easter party guests.
This drink is creamy and delightful, with a sweet and comical jelly bean garnish. If you don't have jelly beans, you could also use edible Easter-themed sprinkles!
The Pink Cherry Blossom
A Pink Cherry Blossom is one of my favorite spring cocktails due to its tart lime flavor, bold cherry kick, and subtle gin background.
It turns out a soft, light pink color that's perfect for a daytime event, especially if you add a couple of decorative white flowers.
Kir Royale is a simple Champagne specialty that incorporates crème de cassis, a blackcurrant liqueur.
It's a light, luxurious cocktail with plenty of fizziness to make you feel bubbly enough to celebrate Easter. A Kir Royale looks beautiful in an etched glass with pretty garnishes like fruit or a sugar rim.
A Peach Bellini is a fantastic Easter cocktail that's easy to make and looks precious in tall, slender glasses.
It's made with fresh peaches and Prosecco that combine to create a unique mimosa-like beverage. Make sure to use ripe peaches to ensure the ideal taste and consistency.
Elderflower Prosecco Cocktail
Elderflower is one of my favorite cocktail ingredients due to its floral and slightly tropical nuanced flavors. And when you combine this with Prosecco, you get the perfect bubbly Easter cocktail.
This Elderflower Prosecco Cocktail is a fantastic, balanced combination of sweet, minty, and tart, ensuring everyone at the gathering will fall in love with it. It's a great cocktail for the spring, but I also like to drink it in the summertime since it's so refreshing.
The Rosemary Grapefruit Refresher
Like elderflower, rosemary is a dreamy, floral ingredient that can bring out the best in a cocktail.
This Rosemary Grapefruit Refresher is perfect for Easter - it's light and refreshing, with a hint of evergreen rosemary and a citrusy grapefruit flavor. It's balanced out with some club soda for a refreshing, bubbly feel that calms down any taste of the vodka.
Mojitos are always a hit throughout the year, but when you add watermelon to the mix, it brings a unique springtime twist to the classic.
This Watermelon Mojito is a wonderful option for Easter since it keeps the lime, mint, and rum combo but adds sliced watermelon and simple syrup for a sweeter and slightly sour flavor.
This cocktail is a great cocktail for larger parties because it's easy to stir together in a large punch bowl.
Easter is a good time for prayer, reflection, and community. But it’s also a great holiday opportunity to celebrate life with family and friends, and making Easter cocktails is a great way to do that!
