Enjoy Easter with a Cocktail

BevMo's suggestions for a fruity, fun Easter Sunday.

BevMo!, with locations in Costa Mesa and Huntington Beach, has a few recipes for an Easter Sunday cocktail.

Inspired by Easter cheer, candy and eggs, the BevMo! recipes include Easter Fizz, Candy Cream Egg Martini and Fuzzy Bunny.

The Easter Fizz

Pour 2 ounces of brandy, 1 egg white, 1 teaspoon powdered sugar, and 1 ounce cream or half and half into a shaker filled with ice. Shake hard until a thin froth forms.

Strain into a lowball or martini glass and dust with a sprinkling of nutmeg.

Candy Cream Egg Martini

Chill your martini glass in the freezer for 15 minutes.  Take the glass out and very quickly drizzle the chocolate syrup across the glass in several directions. Place glass immediately back in the freezer.

Add 1 cup of ice to a cocktail shaker then pour in 1 ounce of  Crème de Cacao, .5 ounce of Godiva Chocolate Liqueur, 1 ounce of Bailey's Caramel Irish Cream and a splash of whipped cream vodka then shake until well chilled.

Scoop a good sized dollop of caramel syrup into the bottom of your glass. This will be the "yolk" of the creamy egg center.

Gently pour your martini over the caramel sauce, and top it off with the mini Cadbury (Candy) Cream Egg on a cocktail pick.

The Fuzzy Bunny Martini

Separate the jelly beans according to color and add jelly beans to mason jars or empty bottles. Fill the mason jars with vodka.

Put a lid on the jars and keep in the fridge for 2-3 days, making sure to give the jars a shake once a day. After 2-3 days strain the vodka using cheese cloth into clean containers.

Pour two ounces of jelly bean infused vodka into a champagne flute and top with champagne. Garnish with jelly beans, and enjoy!

REALLY? For enjoying EASTER? Your Brain - Alcohol is a depressant that slows brain activity down. While one or two drinks makes most people feel relaxed, more alcohol may cause feelings of anxiety, depression, and often aggression. Alcohol’s first effect as it reaches the outer brain is to distort your judgement and lower you inhibition, while producing euphoria (a sense of pleasure). As you consume more alcohol, and it reaches the cerebellum, your coordination and perception are affected, and you can have memory blackouts. As the alcohol reaches your mid-brain, reflexes diminish, you experience confusion, stupor, and may lapse into a coma. Once the alcohol finally reaches the medulla, or inner core of the brain, your heart rate drops and breathing ceases, resulting in death. Research suggests that continued alcohol use can cause depression. Alcohol robs brain cells of water and glucose, the brain’s food, contributing to a hangover the next day. --- http://www.radford.edu/~kcastleb/affect.html
