Easter is about a lot of things: history, tradition, religion, family. Picnics on the lawn. Egg rolls and egg hunts (and major nostalgia). Pretty church dresses (or Crocs). Brunch with your besties.

But let us not forget drinking. Nothing goes with Easter brunch quite like an Easter cocktail. After all, this is often a family event, and where there’s family, there’s drama. And where there’s drama, there should be cocktails.

So even if your Easter Brunch plans are casual, you need a good, fast cocktail recipe on hand.

So what makes a good Easter cocktail? Think, light, spritzy, colorful, berry-ful. Champagne’s a common base, but you can get fancy with Prosecco, or simple with white wine. Or go creamy with half-and-half, vodka, and marshmallows. Yep. Here are some must-try recipes:

Limoncello Citrus Sangria

Put some speckled egg candies in some champagne flutes. Add champagne. Drizzle simple syrup. Add blackberries and an edible flower for garnish. Beautiful. Thanks to The Effortless Chic!

So whether your spring favorites are buzzy and berry-full, creamy and sweet, or pastel and bubbly, you are now set for the perfect, breezy brunch!
