better-than-an-egg easter cocktails
Lent is a time of self-deprivation, will power... and cravings. These last few weeks (for those of us who have adhered to the rules!) have been torturous and incredibly tedious but the thought of gorging ourselves on Easter eggs and a long weekend has made it all worth it. But why restrict yourself to just chocolate when you can have something even better - alcohol and chocolate! Our master bartender has spent the last couple of weeks working on some indulgent chocolate cocktail recipes just for you, take a look...
