So Easter is obviously best known, by Christians, for the celebration of Jesus’ resurrection. By now you’ve either just been enjoying a day off or you’ve probably gone to church, hunted for Easter eggs & baskets, ate some ham and am now wondering how you are going to make it through the rest of the day with all the family. Have no fear…we have found a great cocktail to help make Aunt Edna’s stories more bearable, and will also help deplete the never ending supply of everyone’s favorite Easter candy…the Peep!
So grab these supplies, you most likely have them around the house, because obviously you like martinis, and get to shakin’.
We present you the Peep-Mopolitan!
1 1/2 oz. Absolute Citron (Any citrus vodka will do)
1/4 oz. Cointreau
3/4 oz. Cranberry Jucie
Fresh Squeeze Lime (to taste)
Shake vigorously…or as we like to say…shake the shit out of it.
Pour into a martini glass and add a peep!
If you want to fancy it up a bit you can sugar the rim with red or pink sugar and then float the peep on top!
Now enjoy this tasty and refreshing drink and get back to family…don’t worry…you don’t have to see them again until the next major holiday and by then we’ll have plenty more drink recipes to get you through the day!
