It’s nearly spring, and with it comes warm weather, fresh fruits and veggies, and new flowers blooming. Easter weekend is the perfect time to shake off those winter doldrums and celebrate! What better way than with cocktails that pair wonderfully with everything from brunch to dinner? Get inspired with our list of 25 cocktails perfect for Easter!

Hosting Easter breakfast or brunch? You’ve gotta have mimosas! We love jazzing ours up with the addition of fun fruits and unexpected pops of color. Bloody marys are nice too, and our recipes have extra nods to the warmer weather by using tomatillos and carrot juice. Long day planned? You can take your drinking through the afternoon with fruity and low ABV slow sippers like our basil lemonade or St. Germain spritz. Having a bigger get together? Sangria or punch is easy on you, and both are huge crowd pleasers. Plus they look great in a big pitcher or punch bowl on your outdoor BBQ table. Missing the Easter candy? Try our chocolatey mudslide or cottontail margarita to get a sweet fix. If you’re serving ham or lamb for dinner, our classic cocktails like an old fashioned or cherry sazerac will stand up well to savory red meat.

Whatever you serve, you’re going to want the perfect meal to stand up to the big flavors of these cocktails— check out our lists of Easter brunch, dinner, and dessert recipes for ideas! Not a big drinker but still want to celebrate? Check out our list of mocktails perfect for any occasion.
