BarChick's Favourite Easter Choctails 2014

Chocolate is good but booze is better; combine the two and you’ve got yourself a par-tay. Admittedly Easter ain’t as fun as when your gran used to hide eggs all over the house/garden, but that doesn’t mean it can’t still be just as wild. Make like Willy Wonka at a coming out party and get down with these chocolate inspired cocktails. Night Jar The Monterrico A classier affair than most creamy, milk chocolate catastrophes, hit Night Jar if you’re looking for something a little more avant-garde. Ron Zacapa 23, fresh lime, homemade grenadine, carob-infused Amer Picon & orange liqueur 129 City Rd, London EC1V 1JB Belgraves The Bunny Boiler Bagged yourself a hot date? Got a feeling you’re going to want to take things upstairs later? Order them a Bunny Boiler at Belgraves to see if they can handle the sweetness. White and dark chocolate liquor infused with vodka and a hint of spice. 20 Chesham Pl, London SW1X 8HQ choctail.mailout Barts Quail Surprise Surprise! There isn’t actually any chocolate in this one, but the quail egg garnish looks like a Cadbury’s Mini Egg, a cruel trick or a clever touch? You decide. Tanqueray Malacca shaken with maraschino cherry yolk, sugar and milk, served on the rocks, and garnish with a real quail's eggs, salt and pepper. Chelsea Cloisters, 87 Sloane Ave, London SW3 3DW Bunga Bunga The Colosseum Cocktail A dramatic name for a dramatic cocktail, The Colosseum is a colossal sharer built for eight lucky boozers. Bring your mates or go it alone… leave the toga at home though. Grey Goose La Poire and a bottle of Martini Prosecco 37 Battersea Bridge Rd, Battersea, London SW11 3BA Foundation Bar, Covent Garden Terry’s Chocolate Orange Martini From the creator of last year’s Cream Egg Mojito comes the Terry’s Chocolate Orange Martini. These guys are onto something. Don’t bother eating breakfast, lunch or dinner you’re going to need all the capacity you can get. It’s not Terry’s… it’s mine. 5 Langley St, London WC2H 9JA Christopher’s Martini Bar Nutella Martini Not for the faint-hearted, only serious chocolate lovers should consider this one.
