Whether you’re awaiting the Easter Bunny, honoring Passover traditions, or simply celebrating spring’s blossoming return, festive drinks are always in order. Welcome the season with an unexpected pop of color and a sip the bunny himself would approve of. Bonus: It’s the perfect libation to savor on International Carrot Day April 4.
