When you think of Easter, you probably aren’t staring at the bar cart and wondering which spirits to break out for the festivities. That is, unless you’re the ladies that replaced Easter eggs with wine bottles. But for this specific holiday weekend, we already love delicious, over-the-top meals and sweet, colorful desserts and treats, so why not extend that same creativity to your cocktail selection?

I know, the idea of Easter cocktails sounds a little strange, especially when the focus of these recipes is mezcal—not exactly the literal holiday spirit. But just trust us when we say that these drink recipes, courtesy of the mad scientists at El Silencio, will likely become your new springtime favorites.
