Easter Cocktails

Our Easter Bunny (AKA: cocktail reporter is back with her discoveries for Easter cocktails in Birmingham. Taylah tells us there's more to Easter than eggs and bunnies!

Chocolate cocktails are popular all year round and with Easter just around the corner, Birmingham’s best cocktail bars have set to work creating even more devilishly indulgent Easter specials for us!

Alvar Bar in Hotel La Tour are bringing us some bubbly with their Elderflower Royale, an exciting mix of elderflower vodka, sugar syrup, lime juice and, of course, champagne! You’re probably going to fall in love with this indulgently delicious Creme Egg cocktail too...but fear not, they’ve shared their recipe with us so you can make it again at home too!

Crème Egg

  • 20ml Black Rum
  • 15ml Madeira
  • 10ml Coffee Liqueur
  • 40ml Cream
  • 2 drops of Chocolate Bitters
  • 10ml Chocolate liqueur

Place all ingredients in a shaker, strain into a martini glass. Drizzle the chocolate liqueur over the top and garnish with a chocolate button.

The Bitters ‘n' Twisted group have launched an exciting Easter Cocktail Hunt for April too – customers buy a cocktail at 4 different venues (collecting a stamp for each one they purchase), and at the 5th and final venue they can get a free cocktail! A free cocktail from one of Birmingham’s best cocktail bars...it’s a no-brainer!! Each venue has created 2 or 3 quirky Easter specials for the occasion.

Look forward to delicious delights like Eggselent – Mozart chocolate, Kinder Egg sugar syrup, Chambord, Frangelico and Cahaca – from Bodega, White Rabbit – Monkey Shoulder, Amaretto, white chocolate syrup, milk and cream – from New Inn, and Raspberry Ripple – Absolut Raspberri, Haymans Old Tom Gin, Apple Juice,  Lemon Juice, Fresh Raspberries & Butterscotch Schnapps – from The Jekyll and Hyde.

It's not just at Easter that you can get your chocolate cocktail fix in Birmingham. Head over to Colmore Row and visit The Bureau for their delectable Chocolate Egg - Brugal Anejo rum, Frangelico hazelnut liqueur, caramel syrup & chocolate bitters shaken with a whole egg, then served straight up with grated 70% coco chocolate.

Then just a few doors away we have Chung Ying Central with their creative zodiac cocktail menu. For the year of the Rooster they’re serving up You Must Be Yolking – vanilla Stoli vodka, Baileys, milk and cream – which they’ve based loosely on a Cadbury’s Creme Egg...perfect for when you’ve ran out of Easter eggs!
