With spring around the corner, Easter is officially on the horizon, which means鈥攎uch to the delight of the sugar-addled masses鈥攖he arrival of Cadbury Creme Eggs. The beloved seasonal candy, a chocolate egg-shaped confection with a yolk-like fondant center, went on to worldwide adoration after its introduction in the United Kingdom in 1963. Inevitably, the beloved seasonal candy鈥檚 arrival each year translates to a blast of attention on social media, and with it, the creation of Cadbury Cr猫me Egg-spiked cocktails. (We don鈥檛 make the rules, people.)

If grinding actual candy into your drinks doesn鈥檛 sound appealing, we鈥檝e got you. There are ways to enjoy candy-inspired cocktails without using literal candy.

Case in point: Our Cadbury Egg cocktail. Astute readers of the recipe will note that there鈥檚 nary a candy to be found in the list of ingredients. (We’re not counting the chocolate syrup rim, because who doesn’t love a chocolate syrup rim?) Instead, the drink calls on white creme de cacao, a sweet liqueur that adds chocolate flavor and body, and white chocolate liqueur, which delivers aromatic notes and cocoa butter flavor. Advocaat, a traditional Dutch beverage that marries eggs, sugar and brandy, provides a custard-like consistency, while half-and-half ensures a creamy base. Vanilla vodka adds an aromatic kick.
