14 Pitcher Cocktails Perfect for Easter Brunch
Pitcher cocktails are some of the very best drink you can serve at Easter brunch. They are beautiful and flavorful, they don’t take much effort on the hosts’ part (no standing at the counter with a shaker in hand) and they’re just a little more elegant than beer or even wine. Since Easter often marks the beginning of spring — it is also the perfect time to enjoy the end-of-winter citrus and early spring berries in the same pitcher.
Pitcher cocktails are often built on fruit juice and alcohol with some kind of bubbly beverage added to finish. You can mix up the base of most pitcher cocktails well in advance and then just pour on the Champagne (or ginger beer) and add ice just before serving. Having glasses and garnishes right neat the finished pitcher makes for easy self-service.
Next to Easter classics like egg casseroles, slow cooked hams, and robust roast lambs, it is also important that your Easter drinks be a little tart, bitter, or sweet to contrast the rich food at the table. These 16 pitcher cocktails are a cinch to make, pretty on your Easter table, and taste just as vibrant as they look.
