Easter Italian Ice Cocktail
What are you sippin’ on for Easter Supper?
I have a feeling someone at your dinner party would absolutely love our deliciously chill Easter Italian Ice Cocktail!
We’re betting on it. It is 100% gorgeous, with only three ingredients.
Italian ice is shaved ice with a fruit-flavored syrup. Can we agree on that? I can if you can. Now let’s proceed, shall we?
So, I took a few (clearing my throat) liberties with our version of what we thought an Easter Italian ice should be.
We got the ice part right, but we added just a few more ingredients to ensure maximum wowmazingness (yup, that’s a made-up word)!
First, we took out our Ninja blender and macerated a whole tribe of ice cubes.
Yes, lots of innocent ice cubes were crushed beyond recognition to pull off this wonderful cocktail.
Then into a cocktail tin, we added Blue Curaçao syrup, a bit of Grey Goose premium vodka, and a healthy (we only do healthy splashes) splash of Miraval Rosé Côtes de Provence! But wait!
We then created these decorative and sweet mini-skewers using Easter gummy candies, pastel-colored malted chocolate balls, and slices of Meyer lemon.
We thought they were quite festive and kinda cool. What say you?!
You know what? I am just realizing that all of the liquids in this cocktail are of French origin. Grey Goose? French!
The lavender flavored Le Sirop de Monin? French!
And finally, the super ‘lish Miraval Rosé Côtes de Provence? Without a doubt 100% Français!
So, basically, what I’m saying is name aside.
Our Italian ice is only Italian ice by name, it’s soul, however, is fundamentally French.
I don’t usually use words like adorable and cute, so I can’t really describe this cocktail as such. But it is, “Pretty cool, huh?”
So, in the end, we thought everything came out looking pretty okay and it wound up tasting even okay-er.
And I normally don’t do the whole “sweet” cocktail thing, because macho!
Yet, somehow I really took a shine to this kinda sorta sweet cocktail creation.
In closing, allow me to say one thing about Meyer lemons. Get this, they kinda look like small oranges, right? But they’re not, they are indeed lemons, but lemons with more of a sweet rather than sour taste.
More of an orangey rather than a lemony taste. Who knew?
And by the way, Happy Easter from The Wortheys!
Ingredients Needed for this Easter Cocktail
Blue Curaçao Syrup. Blue Curaçao is how we get a bit of sweetness and blue color is a good look too! Don’t like Blue Curaçao? Blueberry syrup works well also!
Vodka and Miraval Cote de Provence. These two alcohols come together to help give your cocktail a certain booziness you’re going to love! Use whatever vodka you like and of course, choose your favorite rosé as well!
Lemons. Lemons are a great garnishment. I used Meyer lemons but you can use a classic lemon if needed.
Easter Candies. Easter candy gummies and chocolate-coated candies work beautifully in this fun cocktail.
Is Miraval Cotes Provence sweet?
Miraval Cote Provence is a dry rose wine. You will find it is a fresh and light wine.
If you can’t find this wine you can use any rose wine in replacing it if you want.
Can I use a Sugar-Free Blue Curacao Syrup?
You will be able to swap to a sugar-free syrup if you need it. Some stores carry the sugar-free version but if not I know stores like Amazon have them online to ship to home.
