Easter Cheers

I saw this on Pinterest and thought it was adorable and delicious looking! I hope or "hop" you like it too!  I have a companion cocktail I'll post tomorrow!

For the cocktail:

Rim a martini glass with thick simple syrup and then dip into dyed green coconut flakes, then adorn with a little marshmallow peep!

Prepare the glasses ahead of time and put them on a tray decorated with jelly beans and other seasonal delights for a stunning effect.

For the cocktail:

1 1/2 ounces cherry vodka

1/2 ounce Triple Sec

3 ounces half and half or milk

Shake with ice until chilled, pour into decorated glasses, garnish with peep and serve!


  1. Perfect! Thanks for sharing and happy Easter. Hope you are surrounded by loved ones and friends. Our Rhode Island son and daughter-in-love are arriving this evening.


  2. What a great idea and so perfect but I'd have to just use a smoothie recipe. Have a wonderful Easter.

  3. Too much pink! LOL. Sounds pretty good but I confess I've never been a fan of marshmallows. :)

  4. Oh WOWSERS,that looks yumma dum dum. Mmm mmm mm I think I'd like one of those right now! Susan

  5. Hello Mary:
    We have long thought that the cocktail hour should make a come back in a big way, and this delicious looking glass based on cherry vodka looks exactly right for any fun occasion. And, we imagine, it tastes rather good!!

  6. Oh, never tried cherry vodka! I'd love to have one, thanks :-)

  7. I've nver had cherry vodka either . . . I don't suppose you have a recipe for making your own do you, Mary? :)

    And can I just say how very pretty this is. Enchanting.

  8. I knew I should have PEEPED in for a visit. I love the coconut on the rim.


I'm thrilled you've stopped by and I always enjoy your comments! Thank you!
