Fuzzy Bunny Cocktail
Are you looking for a tasty cocktail perfect for serving at your Easter brunch? Well look no further than the Fuzzy Bunny Cocktail, savory yet sweet for the perfect Easter treat.
I think most people think of Mimosa’s for brunch. Which I have to tell you, I 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. For me, this year I decide to mix things up a bit, and make an Easter twist on a Bloody Mary. I did this by using carrot juice instead of tomato juice.
V8 offers several great carrot juice based mixers that also add 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 similar to a mimosa. We tried both of these varieties and while I preferred the pineapple passion fruit version my husband liked the peach “man”go version better, go figure…..LOL. So I guess it just depends on your personal taste preferences.
Think of a Bloody Mary but with Carrot Juice. Plus a mix of other fruit juices to make a perfect Easter Brunch cocktail.
- 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 stir sticks. Which are just a coffee stir sticks and a fluffed cotton ball. All you do is glue the cotton ball in the end of the stick. So easy and simple, but it adds a festive detail in a pinch with things you may already have around your home.
