Cadbury Egg Martini Recipe

Once a year, Easter hops into our homes and serves as the perfect excuse to get together with family to enjoy some quality time. When most people think of Easter, they think of brunch filled with tasty casseroles, fruits, and drinks like mimosas. However, if you're looking for an adult beverage that's a bit more decadent, may we suggest this Cadbury Egg martini? This drool-worthy martini is perfect for chocolate enthusiasts, and it's so pretty that we bet it makes an appearance on your Instagram feed. The actual Cadbury Creme Egg serves as garnish and is just the icing (or in this case, chocolate) on the proverbial cake, and it's absolutely perfect for Easter.

Recipe developer Jaime Shelbert came up with this fantastic drink that deserves a cheers of its own. "I love how fast these are. Your Easter guests will think you are a professional mixologist, but secretly they are easy to make!" Shelbert raves. "The quintessential Easter treat, the Cadbury [Creme] Egg is the inspiration behind this one."

Gather the ingredients for the Cadbury Egg martini

There are just a few things you'll need to make this tasty after-dinner treat. Head to the store and grab chocolate chips, half and half (or heavy cream), ice (if you don't have it at home), vanilla-flavored vodka, creme de cacao, and Cadbury Creme Eggs. The recipe also calls for one optional ingredient — yellow food coloring — to make the cocktail even more festive.

Once you have all those items, you can fix this decadent Cadbury Egg martini.

Melt the chocolate chips

Lets get down to it! Grab a small, microwave-safe dish and toss in the chocolate chips. Feel free to use your go-to brand. "Any chocolate chips will work here. Pro tip: add ¼ teaspoon coconut oil to the melted chocolate if you want it to harden on the glass. Otherwise, just use the chocolate chips," Shelbert shares.

Pop the bowl in the microwave for about 45-60 seconds. Be sure to stir the chocolate chips about halfway through the cook time. Once the chocolate fully melts, you can remove it from the microwave.

Rim the glasses with chocolate

Pour the chocolate onto a small plate and grab a martini glass or coupe glass. Dip the rim of the glass into the melted chocolate mixture and tilt it to coat the upper ½-inch of the glass. The more chocolate, the better. Repeat the same dipping process with the second glass and set them to the side. This gives the chocolate a little time to harden while you prep the cocktail.

Mix the half and half and food coloring

Here's where your mixology skills come into play. Pour the half and half into a small glass, and if you chose to use food coloring, add 4 drops to the half and half. Use a spoon or a drink mixer to stir and combine, then split the liquid between each glass.

Grab a cocktail shaker and fill it with ice. "No cocktail shaker, no problem. You can use a mason jar, pop a lid on it, and shake," Shelbert says. Add the vanilla vodka and creme de cacao to the shaker. Put the lid back on and shake to combine.

Add the booze, garnish, and serve

Now, evenly divide the vodka mixture between the two glasses and stir. For the last step, simply split the Cadbury egg in half with a knife. Spear it on a cocktail pick and add the garnish to each glass. Voila, now you can get your Easter party started!

When asked about serving suggestions, Shelbert insists that this drink is great solo. "This martini stands alone as a tasty dessert drink," she shares.

We hope you share this cocktail with somebunny you love!
