By now everyone is excited about the Easter long weekend. You can barely walk down the supermarket aisle without upending a towering display of edible bunnies or causing an avalanche of lolly-filled eggs. Of course, extra days off also allows for longer hangover recovery time, so we might as well combine our love for the sweet stuff with an alcoholic beverage or two.
Here’s our round up of the best Easter-inspired drinks from around the web.
The drink that requires just 5 minutes for preparation. These Carrot Mimosas are a mix of beer

30ml vanilla vodka

The Hopping Bunny
Slice of Fresh Papaya
¼ oz. Agave Nectar
1 ¼ oz. Avión Añejo
½ oz. Aperol
½ oz. Orange Juice
¾ oz. Fresh Lime Juice
Garnish with Fresh Papaya
Directions: Add a slice of fresh papaya and agave nectar to your mixing glass. The amount of nectar you add depends on how sweet you like your cocktails, but usually about a teaspoon will do the trick. Muddle to release the papaya flavor. Add 1¼ ounces of Avión Añejo, ½ ounce each of Aperol and orange juice. Then, top them off with ¾ ounce fresh lime juice. Add ice and give it a good shake.
Strain over ice, and garnish with a fresh slice of papaya.
