16 Festive Cocktails + Mocktails for Easter Brunch

If you ask us, half the fun of brunch is all of the fun beverages that abound… and we’re not just talking about booze and bubbly. For your Easter brunch, we’ve gathered up 16 cocktails and mocktails that will make your celebration extra festive for everyone. Each is delightfully springy and just the thing to carry you through to the porch-sipping days of summer.

1. Clementine and Rosemary Mimosa: Improve upon the usual orange juice and Champagne combo with the addition of a rosemary and clementine simple syrup. (via Lauren Kelp)

2. Sparkling Orange Pom Fizz: There’s nothing like a little pomegranate juice (and Prosecco) in the morning to get things started. (via Brit + Co.)

3. Ramos (Non) Gin Fizz: This fizz may be gin-less, but it’s no doubt just as delightfully creamy as the original. (via The Merrythought)

4. Afternoon Tai: Afternoon tea meets the mai tai with this tea-infused rum and tropical fruit juice cocktail. (via Tealeaves)
