    Best Cocktail Recipes for Easter

    April 2, 2015

    Easter’s this weekend and there’s nothing better than a cocktail or three to wash down all those choccy bunnies we’ll be chomping on.

    We’ve got a number of awesome concoctions to make with chocolate bitters by The Bitter Truth Range of Bitters and Liqueurs.

    Cocktail bitters are becoming more and more popular with avid cocktail makers.  Like adding salt and pepper to a meal, the equivalent in the drinks world is a dash of cocktail bitters, made from aromatic oils, herbs and spices. 

    We’re pretty sure you’ll be addicted to the stuff by the end of Easter.

    Cue the Easter-themed recipes:
