What makes a cocktail an Easter cocktail? Well, we really weren’t sure, until the makers of Rosé All Day sparkling wines sent us their Easter Champagne cocktail, which is basically a version of a mimosa. It was one of those “aha moments” that had us rolling on the floor laughing at the clever schemes marketers will pitch. The drink is a flute of day-glow orange liquid with a nubby carrot shoved over the glass. Yes, that is indeed an Easter drink. But is a creative cocktail worth drinking?
A vibrant Easter drink
The answer is yes. Despite how ridiculous the concept may sound, a carrot Mimosa is an alluring afternoon sip. I will say that our team insists on one slight modification. Skip the carrot jammed onto the rim of the flute. A garnish that serves no other purpose than to poke you in the eye, it has none of the appeal of a celery in a Bloody Mary and it is a vegetable best left in the refrigerator.
An Easter aphrodisiac?
You still might think the concept of this alcoholic Easter drink is corny but what if I told you this bunny lover’s cocktail is an aphrodisiac? And no, I don’t mean an aphrodisiac for rabbits! If you’ve spent much time on our site, you already know that sparkling wine is an aphrodisiac. So just for the simple fact that it’s a mimosa, it has aphrodisiac potential.
Some things you should know about carrot juice
But then there’s the carrots. Although they don’t make my list of the world’s most potent aphrodisiacs, carrots offer several sexual health benefits that are worth a shout out. True, you’re only getting carrot juice in small doses with this drink, you’re still going to benefit from a boost of beta-carotene. In fact, carrot juice may be one of the best Easter drinks. This vegetable juice, which is a relatively low sugar and low calorie drink, is said to help boost metabolism. And you’re going to need some help to digest all that Easter chocolate!
