Fuzzy Bunny Cocktails
Are you looking for a tasty cocktail perfect for serving at your Easter brunch? Well look no further than the Fuzzy Bunny Cocktails, aka the Carrot Mary, a savory yet sweet for the perfect Easter treat.
What’s up doc? Honestly,I think most people think of Mimosas when hosting a brunch. Which I have to say, I do love a good Mimosa. I have several great recipes and varieties you should try from my New Year’s Eve Champagne Bar post, in case you prefer to stick with the Mimosa game plan. However for me, I always like to mix things up a bit, and keep people guessing what will she do next? So this year I am make an Easter twist on a Bloody Mary, by using carrot juice instead of tomato juice,which is why I call them Carrot Mary’s. V8 brand offers several great carrot juice based mixers that add fruit fusions of passion fruit, mango or pineapple juices. These add a nice touch of sweetness to drink and actually makes these bunch time cocktails have a sweeter taste which I found similar to a mimosa. We tried both of these varieties and while I preferred the pineapple, passion fruit version my husband liked the peach mango version better, go figure lol. So I guess it really just depends on your personal taste preferences.
- 1/2 Bottle V8 Pineapple Passion Fruit Juice
- 1/2 Bottle V8 Peach Mango Juice
- 3 cups Tito's Vodka
- 6 mini carrots peeled to garnish
- 1 Bunch Cilantro (optional)
- 1 Liter Sprite
- Mix the two refrigerated juices together, into a large pitcher.
- Add Vodka. A good tip is that, I like to keep my Vodka in the freezer, to keep it good in cold. This is a little bit of a time saver.
- Fill serving glasses with ice.
- Pour juice mix over ice filing 1/2 of glass.
- Top with Sprite to fill glass.
- Garnish with carrot stick and cilantro (optional)
I decided to toss in these quick homemade bunny tail stir sticks, which are so simple to make. They are essentially just a coffee stir sticks or you can use a popsicle stick and a fluffed up cotton ball. All you do is glue the cotton ball into the end of the stick, and viola bunny tail. So easy and simple, but it really adds a festive detail in a pinch with things you may already have around your home.
