The only cocktails you need this Easter

This season provides the perfect excuse for you to create some lovely, refreshing cocktails, perfect for Easter weekend brunches and dinner with family and friends

Spring makes everyone excited; the glimmer of sunshine is a sign to officially put away your winter coats and prepare for lighter evenings.

During Easter, after dinner drinks are always welcomed after a hearty meal, think light citrus bases and sweet rose finishes.

From jazzing up drinks with fun fruit additions to sugar syrups, the experts at Heartsease Farm have shared three ultimate Easter cocktail recipes.

Limoncello Mojito

- 12 fresh mint leaves

- 2 oz white rum

- 2 oz Limoncello lemon liqueur

- 1 tsp lime juice

Method

1) Place the water and sugar in a small saucepan and stir until the sugar dissolves to create a syrup.

3) Fill the same cup with ice and add the lime juice, limoncello, syrup and Heartsease Farm Wild Elderflower pressé

4) Stir well and garnish with lime and fresh mint leaves.

Raspberry Rose Sangria

Serves 4-6

Ingredients

- 2 cups fresh raspberries

Ginger Beer Margaritas

Serves 2
