Cocktail Hour – Easter Brunch

This week’s cocktail hour, I’m featuring two classic brunch cocktails in honor of the Easter holiday this weekend.

On the lighter side is the mimosa.

Stoli-Bloody-Mary-newestIf you want a more hearty cocktail, may I suggest a Bloody Mary.

Bloody Mary

Celery salt
1 Lemon wedge
1 Lime wedge
2 oz Premium Vodka
4 oz Tomato juice
2 dashes Tabasco Sauce
2 tsp Prepared horseradish
2 dashes Worcestershire sauce
1 pinch Celery salt
1 pinch Ground black pepper
1 pinch Smoked paprika

Pour some celery salt onto a small plate. Rub the juicy side of the lemon or lime wedge along the lip of a pint glass. Roll the outer edge of the glass in celery salt until fully coated. Fill with ice and set aside. Squeeze the lemon and lime wedges into a shaker and drop them in. Add the remaining ingredients and fill with ice. Shake gently and strain into the prepared glass. Garnish with a celery stalk and a lime wedge.

Hard to choose? Put on your Easter bonnet, have both, and make it a very Happy Easter!
