Easter for adults: Chocolate cocktails for the long weekend

Making plans for the Easter weekend? There are only so many hot cross buns and Crème Egg crodoughs you can eat, so why not get your chocolate fix with one of these limited edition cocktails?

The Honey Bunny at Heddon Street Kitchen – £9.00, available until 28th March.

Treat your favourite chocoholic to a meal at Gordon Ramsay’s Heddon Street Kitchen followed by a Honey Bunny cocktail. Perfect for diners with a sweet tooth, it’s a blend of Bacardi Carta Blanca, orange curaçao, Mozart White Chocolate Liqueur and a dash of chocolate bitters. For an extra touch of decadence, it’s finished with an egg yolk foam and a sticky chocolate orange rim.
