5 Cocktails That Will Have Your Easter Party Hopping

Easter CocktailsToday was the annual Madtini Easter egg hunt here at the World Headquarters and Research Labs. Since the entire Madtini facility consists of 4 rooms the festivities lasted about 20 minutes and that includes 18 minutes of arguing over the rules. The winner was our new ice cube intern Wolfgang, who collected 35 chocolate eggs (we only hid 4??). However, Wolfgang gained the wrath of fellow competitors by constantly reminding everyone that the whole easter egg thing first began in his native Rhineland in the mid 18th century. Seriously, he wouldn’t shut up about.

So, as anyone knows there’s nothing like a solid holiday beat down to clear the air and make everyone feel a tad bit better about things. Wolfgang will no doubt recover and be back to his ice cube tray re-filling duties soon.

The rest of the Madtini gang is on duty and here are 5 cocktails that are sure to make your Easter egg hunt a heck of a lot more fun. May your long weekend be full of chocolate.
