Hey everyone, I'm a huge cocktail drinker (as you can see in this pic lol). While everyone is gonna be drinking beers this Easter, I want to enjoy a refreshing cocktail. Can anyone recommend a good cocktail pairing for meat and lamb?

I know you like cocktails, but I am very traditional for Easter and would go with the Greek white wine Retsina!

Ouzo lemonade is so good! Just squeeze fresh lemons, add a bit of simple syrup, and your favourite ouzo! We all know that ouzo goes super well with heavier meats :) cheers!

I would add a splash of Sprite or some kind of lemon lime soda

Try OUZO SPECIAL created in Cyprus and adapted by myself:
Per glass - crushed or whole ice cubes/ 2-4 cl ouzo/ 1 cl Cassis (or Grenadine)/ fill up with preferably with bitter lemon (or sprite) / decorate with a cocktail cherry and mint or basil leaf (optional: also an apple slice).

I am all about Raki or Ouzo with lamb, but the cocktails mentioned above see delicious! I also like a refreshing ouzo spritzer: 1 shot of ouzo, juice of half a lemon, 5-6 fresh mint leaves, ice in the glass, top it off with soda water or lemon soda depending on the level of sweetness you want. The lemon and anise complement each other well, and the fizz and ice make it extra refreshing.
