    Happy Easter! Today is the day that Christians believe Jesus rose from the dead. And it's named,not altogether coincidentally, for a pre-Christian festival named Eoster.

    So what better way to celebrate the brutal death and surprising resurrection of the son of God than by binging on cheap chocolate, much of it shaped like eggs?

    Well, we can think of a better one. And if you're part way through a full-scale Bank Holiday weekender, we'd recommend you continue - it's what Jesus would have wanted, after all. If you're having a quiet one, why not join us in one of our favourite Easter drinks?

    The Easter Martini is about as much a Martini as Easter is a Christian festival, but creator Simon King did include both eggs and chocolate, along with vanilla and cardamom to add much-needed sophistication. Happy Easter!
