With Easter weekend approaching, chocolate eggs are lining supermarket shelves and free activities for children are being advertised across the city.

If you want to celebrate Easter in a more adult setting, consider stopping in at one of these bars around Nottingham and trying one of these cocktails.

The Alchemist - The Edible One

King Street

The Alchemist’s The Edible One cocktail was released in 2022 as the first fully edible cocktail, complete with a wafer-like cup made of biodegradable natural grains. Made using Avallen Calvados, an apple-based spirit, Green Apple, Lime Sherbet, Salted Caramel and White Choc Cream Foam, this is the perfect cocktail for spring with a chocolatey edge that makes it seasonally appropriate.

Just be sure to finish drinking it before the edible cup goes soggy.

Pepper Rocks - Cherry Bakewell

Pepper Street

If you want something sweet this Easter but chocolate isn’t for you, this Cherry Bakewell cocktail from Pepper Rocks is something to try. A mix of cherry brandy and amaretto, cranberry juice, lemon juice and simple syrup makes this drink taste just like the treat it’s named after.

Hockley Arts Club - Trouble Brewin’

Carlton Street

Another chocolate-based cocktail, Hockley Arts Club’s Trouble Brewin’ is the perfect pick-me-up after a busy Easter weekend. A blend of vodka, Mozart dark chocolate, Kahlua, espresso and vanilla makes this drink the adult equivalent of an Easter egg.

Pit and Pendulum - Kindness

Pelham Street

Described as ‘sunshine in a glass”, Pit and Pendulum’s Kindness cocktail is perfect for springtime. Smirnoff Red vodka, mango and passion fruit purees, orange juice and lemonade make this fruity drink taste both sweet and delicious.

Tilt - Broke After Eight

Pelham Street

Tilt’s Broke After Eight is the liquid equivalent of mint chocolate. Based on the classic after-dinner mint, this cocktail of broker’s gin, Mozart dark chocolate liqueur, menthe pastille and chocolate bitters is perfect if you want a cocktail with a twist.

31K - Coconut Mai Tai

Goosegate

The 31K Coconut Mai Tai is a delicious take on the classic drink that gives it an extra-summery twist.

Golden rum, Bols Curaçao triple sec and lime are shaken with coconut rum, orgeat - almond flavoured syrup - mint leaves and crushed ice giving this drink an incredibly refreshing taste that is perfect for a warm Easter weekend.

31K prices their cocktails based on the day of the week so if you want to save a couple of pounds it is worth going on a weekday.
