It is a wonderful holiday market

Easter is a time to gather together with friends and/or family.  While some start the day in church, many others will enjoy a libation while celebrating. The holiday is behind Mardi Gras, Christmas, Black Friday and St. Patrick’s day as a drinking holiday. But why not add a little something boozy and colorful to the day’s agenda.  All of these pairs well with eggs and candy. Here are some fun and easy Easter cocktails!
