This drunk bunny cocktail recipe comes just in time for Easter. Made with lemonade, strawberry daiquiri mix and rum along with a festive marshmallow Peep candy on the glass, it is a fruity and fun spring drink that is perfect for entertaining.

Our pink starburst cocktail and wine slushies are two more bright and colorful alcoholic drinks that are great choices for sharing with friends.

Drunk Bunny Ingredients

Drunk Bunny raw ingredients that are labeled

You’ll need:

  • 1¾ cup pre-made old-fashioned lemonade (I get mine from my grocery store deli)
  • 3 ounces white rum (also known as Silver or Clear Rum – I used Bacardi Superior brand)
  • 2 tablespoons strawberry daiquiri mixer (I used Bacardi frozen that I thawed first)
  • Garnish: Yellow or Pink PEEPS Bunny candy, fresh lemon slices & fresh strawberries
  • Ice for the glasses

PRO TIP:

If you like your cocktails slightly sweeter, you can add a teaspoon or two of simple syrup or light agave syrup to your individual drinks. These can just be stirred right into your drinks as they dissolve quickly. Granulated sugar does not work as well because it does not dissolve well in cold beverages.

SUBSTITUTIONS AND ADDITIONS

RUM: You can substitute the white rum for a good quality vodka in this recipe. You can also get creative and use a strawberry flavor infused rum or vodka for this. 

LEMONADE: I get my old-fashioned lemonade from my local grocery store deli section. However, if yours does not carry it, you can get your favorite brand of premade lemonade. You could also swap out the traditional lemonade for strawberry lemonade. If you make this swap, I suggest sticking to the standard white rum for your cocktail. 

How to Make This Drunk Bunny Recipe

OUR RECIPE DEVELOPER SAYS

You can make a larger batch of this cocktail ahead of time and store it in a pitcher until ready to serve individual drinks. You will need to double or triple the recipe according to the number of drinks you want to serve. Do not add the ice until you are ready to drink, as it will dilute your drunk bunny cocktail as the ice melts.

STEP ONE: In a cocktail shaker or a large mason jar with a lid, add the lemonade, white rum, and strawberry daiquiri mixer. Shake well for about 30 seconds to combine.

PRO TIP:

I like to keep the frozen Bacardi mixers stocked in my freezer so that I can make a cocktail at a moment’s notice. Once you open the container, you can transfer the remaining thawed strawberry daiquiri mixer to a jar with a tight-fitting lid and store it in your refrigerator for up to 2 weeks. Mason jars work great for this.

STEP TWO: Fill your cocktail glass ¾ full with ice and pour 8 ounces of the drunk bunny cocktail into each glass.

PRO TIP:

If you do not like ice in your cocktail glass, you can add it to your cocktail shaker or large mason jar and then strain your drunk bunny drink into your individual glasses, leaving the ice in the shaker.

How To Serve

These delightful pink cocktails are such a fun addition to your Easter celebrations. They are refreshing, sweet and vibrant. If you have little ones as your guests, you can make a non-alcoholic drink for them with either plain or strawberry lemonade, or even our raspberry lemonade and add the cute marshmallow peep to garnish. 

Storage

IN THE FRIDGE: If you are serving a crowd, you can make a large batch of this cocktail and store it in a pitcher in the fridge for a day or two until you are ready to serve.

IN THE FREEZER: We don’t recommend freezing this cocktail. It is best made fresh.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Can I make this cocktail ahead of time?

Can I use a different alcohol than rum in this recipe?

A clear alcohol such as vodka would also work fine in this cocktail.

Can I use flavored lemonade in this recipe?

Strawberry or a different flavored lemonade would be tasty along with the daiquiri mix for this recipe.

      Hi, Pat – we haven’t tried that yet but I would assume you could blend everything instead of leaving the ice in cubes. Please let me know if you try it out. Enjoy!
