Even if it’s not a big Easter celebration, we always do something fun to celebrate the holiday and we created some new fun and easy Easter ideas that can be added to your celebration this year.
Last year, we had so much fun creating adult themed Easter ideas to really kick up your Easter celebration into something more than just your typical kid themed Easter egg hunt. Check out that post that is full of fun Easter Ideas for:
- Adult Easter egg hunt
- Cotton candy mocktails and cocktails (which you know we absolutely love)
- Cheater Mimosas with the help of Uncommon Goods
- Delicious appetizer pairings
Now you can certainly take some of those ideas (we’re big fans of hunting down splits of bubbly inside giant Easter eggs) and combining with this new and fun Easter mocktail/cocktail and dessert.
When we created this mocktail we were immediately in love…with the color. And it tastes delicious too. It is truly a great Easter celebration/brunch drink.
- 6 oz Fre Sparkling Brut,
- 1.5 oz grapefruit juice and 3-4 slices
- 2-3 t blue curaçao syrup
- In a cocktail shaker muddle grapefruit juice with the grapefruit slices.
- Strain the juice into your favorite champagne glass.
- Add blue curaçao syrup.
- Top with Fre Sparkling Brut.
Tip: This drink will turn to the most pretty shade of blue once it is stirred, but we also love the way it looks before the liquids are combined together. This is a great drink to make ahead of time and you can keep it cold with some frozen blueberries.
This mocktail is perfect to make in a pitcher for the kids to enjoy all day long. To do that, use 8 oz of grapefruit juice and 3 T of blue curaçao syrup.
It’s so easy to turn this mocktail into an Easter celebration cocktail simply by replacing Fre Sparkling Brut with your favorite alcoholic brut.
TIP: If you like your drinks on the sweeter side, this bubbly cocktail would be good with dry or extra dry bubbly. If you’re like me and don’t mind a bit of sweetness but don’t like it really sweet, then stick with your favorite brut bubbly.
Bubbly Cake Pops
Let me start by saying that I am definitely not a cake pop master. In fact, like most things, I thought they looked so easy to make and in fact, they were not…for me anyway.
The easy part is making the cake, of course. And we took the easy way out and bought our favorite Funfetti cake mix and replaced the water with a sparkling rosé. And this cake mix turned out so good it was hard not to eat it just like that.
And then we tried to turn that into cake pops. Now I will say, it took 2 tries and we finally did it right, but I am not going to attempt to share the step by step or any tips because I clearly need them all!
They did turn out super cute with these sprinkles and they were yummy! We certainly couldn’t eat just one.
Pairing Dessert and Bubbly
Since I have no tips on how to make a cake pop in a few easy steps, I definitely have tips on how to pair your dessert and bubbly to make sure both are fully enjoyed.
If you want to truly enjoy both your dessert and your sparkling wine, you need to choose a sparkling wine that is sweeter than your dessert. Take a look at this sweetness chart we made for your reference. Feel free to screenshot or save this pic so you can reference it when at the store.
While I typically drink a brut all the time as I have said many times before I don’t like my drinks too sweet. But when I am serving dessert, I always buy something on the sweeter side. And often times when I am baking with bubbly, I choose a sweeter bubbly.
Fun Fact: Asti Spumante is how I started drinking bubbly many, many (many) years ago and it is the perfect sweetness level for some of your sweeter desserts.
