I have the biggest weakness EVER for this time of year, and it rivals even the pumpkin coffee, velvety flannel shirts, wood-burning, leaf pile-jumping bliss of a New England autumn. Spring? That’s what we wait all year to enjoy. It’s rainbow marshmallows, chocolate rabbits, white linen, baby bonnets, spring dresses, and more. My mom has historically made it special, with her antique bunnies, her love for marshmallow chickens, and her farmhouse kitchen table – often inhabiting 10-20 party guests. The pastel linens come out, the brunch casseroles are served, and there’s a gorgeous pitcher full of brunchy beverage goodness. It’s like a cold, drinkable orange creamsicle with just a little party fizz. You will LOVE it for brunch.
When I think about March, April, and even May, my mouth waters for chocolate eggs, baked hams, and my orange slush drink. It’s festive, zesty, sweet, refreshing, and perfectly pretty for your Easter brunch spread as well. You can also serve it for any Easter meal – you don’t have to limit it for brunch. Breakfast, lunch, dinner, and all the in-betweens count too. I think my mom even served it with Easter dessert once! That was actually really special. Enjoy this versatile drink all spring.

It’s delicious! Fizzy and festive. Coca-Cola beverages and Sam’s Club help to make the perfect Easter meal. You can shop at Sam’s Club for all drink ingredients. Some of our favorites are Simply Orange®, Simply Lemonade®, smartwater®, vitaminwater®, Gold Peak® Tea and Sprite®. For a non-fizzy drink, you can skip the Sprite®, and make sure your Simply Orange® takes center stage. Either way is delicious! It’s not too soon to think about your perfect Easter meal.
