I love Easter.
I love waking up to a rousing game of hide and seek against a basket full of chocolate and candy.
I love the hunt.
I always win.
My first year home from college, I spent a good two hours looking for my Easter basket.
I thought EB was just challenging my new-found college smartie-ness.
It turns out, there was no basket.
My sweet dreams melted into bitter, bitter chocolate.
And I do mean bitter.
There may have been some pouting.
And threats against the bunny.
I got three baskets the following year
But as I get older, I crave less of the sweet, sugary stuff.
Candy is dandy but liquor is quicker.
Drinks aren’t for kids!
They’re for 28 year old bunny lovers.
THE BUNNY CHASER
3 oz. coconut water
1.5 oz. amaretto liqueur
1.5 oz. tart cherry juice
squeeze of lemon
Combine all ingredients in a cocktail shaker filled with ice.
Hop around with shaker.
Pour into a martini glass.
Makes 1 martini
That tastes like a jellybean!
Tidbit: Make it a cocktail (or healthy energy drink!) by omitting the amaretto and adding a drop or two of pure almond extract.
