It’s finally spring and with it comes an array of colors for us to take in, wear, and in this case, drink! I was super excited when the Living Room at W Times Square reached out with the news that they were celebrating the beginning of spring with six fun and colorful spring cocktails all sporting the iconic candy of spring… a mini marshmallow peep! Keep reading for more information on the cocktails, until when they’ll be available, and a recipe to recreate one at home during Easter brunch this weekend… or all through spring!
The Living Room at W Times Square is bringing sweets and liquor together this spring to celebrate and delight. Since the first day of spring all the way to the end of March, that’s March 21-31st, you are invited to pay them a visit and enjoy one of six of these spring cocktails. Pick between The Pin-Up (Pink Cosmo), Lemon Peep-tini (Yellow Lemon Drop), Peter Cottontail Creamsicle (Orange Creamsicle), The Egg Hunt (Blue Margarita), The Peep Show (Purple French Kiss), or the Green Grass Midori (Green Midori) to sip and enjoy.
If you are in New York City make sure to pay them a visit after work or this weekend! Feel free to take a pic of the cocktail you choose and use #WTSPeepShow to share it with them on social media. However, if you find yourself outside of New York City, or maybe planning on hosting an Easter brunch or dinner, here is the recipe for you to recreate The Egg Hunt cocktail for your guests.

I’m planning on recreating one of these myself during the spring season as a spring treat as I’ll be in Miami this month and going out for Easter to celebrate my birthday. Are you planning on stopping by the Living Room at the W Times Square or will you recreate this colorful cocktail at home? What are you doing this Easter weekend? Please do share in a comment or on social media!
Thanks to the Living Room at W Times Square for sharing the news and pictures with me!
