Eggscellent Cadbury's Creme Egg beverages


Creme eggs and cocktails you say? Oh darling, I do say! With Easter egg hunts galore and sugar high's anticipated throughout the chocolate-friendly Easter period, it would be rude to not indulge in all the chocolatey fun. With a sweet tooth, and my favourite tipple of choice a creamy, rich cocktail, I've decided to pull together some eggscellent Easter inspiration for all the adults to enjoy. Get your Eater off to a cracking start with these utterly delicious, and oh-so-gooey creme egg inspired beverages.

Creme egg Martini (serves two)

Ingredients:
  • 2 cups of whole milk
  • 4 Cadbury creme eggs
  • 4 shots of chocolate vodka
  • Mini cadbury's creme eggs to garnish (add as many as you like!)
  • Chocolate syrup to line the glass
Method:
  1. In a pan, heat the milk over a medium heat until it is warm (be sure it doesn't boil!)
  2. Add the Cadbury's creme eggs (one at a time) and move them around until they completely melt.
  3. One all four eggs have melted pour the liquid into a container and put in the fridge for an hour to cool. Whisk occasionally to prevent any separation of the ingredients - I did this three or four times.
  4. With the chocolate syrup, line two martini glasses. Then, pour about 250ml of the milk/creme egg mixture and four shots of chocolate vodka into a cocktail shaker with ice cubes, and shake for about 10 seconds. (We also tried it using Thornton's chocolate liqueur - available in all large supermarkets- which also worked well).
  5. Strain slowly into the martini glasses and garnish with the additional mini Cadbury's creme eggs. You can get as creative as you like and top with thick chocolate shavings too to create a nest effect.

Creme Egg Mojito (serves one):
An oldie but a goodie. Created last year by the Head mixologist Jack Williams for bar owners, Late Night London, this unbelievable beverage just HAD to shared with you all...rum, chocolate liqueur and a Cadbury's Creme Egg, what more could you ask for at Easter!? Although I can't take credit of this one, it's a definite must try.

Ingredients:
  • 25 ml Bacardi Superior run
  • 25ml Mozart chocolate liqueur
  • Sprig of mint
  • Dash of lime juice
  • Dash of soda
  • Two chocolate Cadbury's Creme Eggs
Method:
  1. Slightly bruise the mint spring and then put in the bottom of a tall glass with the rum and chocolate liqueur.
  2. Add some sugar syrup and lime juice to the mix, then add some crushed ice and a smashed up Cadbury's Creme Egg - Stir.
  3. Add a little more crushed ice, and top with a dash of soda. Garnish with an gooey half of a creme egg and hey presto, one Creme Egg Mojito coming right up!

Cadbury's Creme Egg Milkshake (serves one):

Ingredients:
  • 2 cups of vanilla ice cream (four scoops should do, and I'd recommend Madagascan Vanilla from Mackies - keep it local people!)
  • 3 Cadbury's Creme Eggs
  • 1/4 cup of whole milk
  • 1/4 teaspoon of vanilla extract (liquid is best for this)
Method:
  1. With a blender, combine the madagascan vanilla ice cream, the three Cadbury's Creme Eggs, the milk and the vanilla extract together.
  2. Blend until the mixture is smooth with minimal lumps and pour into a tall glass (if you don't have tall glasses then small tumblers would easily do - and that means you can share!)
  3. To complete, garnish your milkshake with a cut in half Cadbury Creme egg (this is where using tumblers will benefit you, a half creme egg garnish per person).
You could always top off with squirty cream and a light dusting of cocoa powder on top like I did...but only if you're really feeling peckish!

So go on...put your creme eggs where your mouth is and indulge in Easter, adult style. Don't forget to send me your delicious creme egg beverages!

For Now...
