While some people hunger for an overflowing Easter basket filled with those sweet candies, others prefer a different holiday treat. Whether it is a holiday brunch, a sipper to calm the nerves after that boisterous hunt, or just a thirst for a special libation, these flavorful and colorful Easter cocktails will bring some vibrancy to the celebration.

During Easter celebrations, certain images, colors, and even flavors are often associated with the event. Although the bunny might take center stage, other animals join the celebratory menagerie. Chicks, sheep and even that lamb bring the cuteness.

In this colorful Easter cocktail from Skrewball Peanut Butter Whiskey, some people might recall the lines to the classic nursery rhyme. No need for wool, but this cocktail is bright yet also a little comforting.
