Ladies Night: Easy Easter Cocktails
March 05, 2018 | Recipes
Now, we know Easter is more fun for the kids but what about all the Mum’s who have been hard at work all week? Just for you, we’ve compiled some of our favourite chocolate flavoured cocktails to enjoy while you unwind.
A Chocolate Lover’s Martini
This easy to make cocktail makes for the perfect drink after a long week or even for an impromptu meetup with the girls. Here’s what you’ll need.
– Cocoa powder (to rim the glass)
– 2 parts chocolate liqueur (and a little more for the rim)
– 1 part vodka
– 1 part half-and-half
To prepare your martini glasses, get 2 small plates and fill one with some chocolate liqueur and the other with cocoa powder. Now go ahead and place the rim of the glass in the chocolate liqueur and then the cocoa powder. When you’re done with them, put them aside or place in the fridge.
Next, fill your cocktail shaker with vodka, half-and-half, and chocolate liqueur. Give it a good shake for 20 seconds. Repeat to make another!
Chocolate & Guinness
What’s better than a glass of stout? A chocolate flavoured glass of stout! The ingredients are minimal but that’s not the case when it comes to flavour.
– 2 big scoops of chocolate ice cream
– 1 teaspoons of chocolate syrup
– 1 teaspoons of chocolate extract
– Ice cold Guinness
Start by adding 2 scoops of ice cream followed by the chocolate extract and chocolate syrup. Now crack open a cold Guinness and fill the glass up. Give it a stir and you’re good to go!
A Chocolate Refresher
We go crazy over anything chocolate mint and we trust you’ll be enjoying this especially if it’s been a really hot day. As always, the ingredients are simple and this one’s real easy to make.
– 1 tablespoon of sugar
– 30ml of bourbon
– 10 chocolate mint leaves
– 1 cup of carbonated water
In a glass, mix the sugar, half a cup of carbonated water, and mint. After that, stir in the bourbon, some ice, and the rest of the carbonated water. If you have any leftover chocolate mint leaves, garnish it for a pretty Instagram picture!
A Sweet Ending
Some people call this drink the Mudslide but we call it the Sweet Ending. After a satisfying dinner with the girls, whip up a few glasses of this sweet and creamy concoction to end the night. Essentially all you’ll need is a blender, Kahlua, vanilla ice cream, chocolate syrup, and vodka.
– 30ml of Kahlua
– 30ml of vodka
– 30ml of Irish cream (optional)
– 1 scoop of vanilla ice cream
– 1 cup of ice
– Chocolate syrup
Start by adding all the ingredients into a blender and blend until it’s smooth. You can add the chocolate syrup into the blender before blending or into a glass before filling it up. Squeeze more chocolate syrup to garnish and enjoy!
