If you want to gift someone – or treat yourself – to an egg with a different, it’s their gold foiled Gin and Tonic egg that is the real show stopper. Made from the finest lemon infused white chocolate, it is then filled with Gin & Tonic truffles and presented in a beautiful yellow and green gift box decorated with Prestat’s trademark gold swirls.
4. Creme Egg Pancakes
Manchester’s DogBowl has a brilliant new addition on its menu for Easter – Creme Egg Pancakes! This delicious stack is a seriously naughty treat for Easter, but much more instagram-able than your standard Creme Egg. Or pancake alone.
5. Hip Hop Hangover Brunch & Cocktails
If you’ve had a heavy Easter Sunday session (or even if you haven’t!), get yourself down to Gorilla on Easter Monday for a seriously good Hip Hop Hangover brunch. The range of Hip Hop DJ’s may cure your hangover, or potentially encourage another one for the following day, but either way it’s sure to be a session of amazing brunch food and hangover cures!
The best bit? Oreo Cookie White Russian Cocktails available especially for Easter Monday! So it’s not really a hangover cure, but it will sure give your body the sugar rush it needs…
