Easter Parade is a 1948 movie musical starring Judy Garland, Fred Astaire, Ann Miller, and Peter Lawford. The movie also features a song of the same name, right at the end, when Don (Astaire) proposes to Hannah (Garland) at an Easter parade.
In your Easter bonnet, with all the frills upon it,
You’ll be the grandest lady in the Easter parade
The song also appears in the movie Holiday Inn, sung by Bing Crosby (and if you’re in a cocktail mood you should also try our Holiday Ginn Fizz recipe!). It should be noted that there is no known recording of this song by Frank Sinatra. Oh, who am I kidding, of course there is!
This simple cocktail recipe needs just two ingredients: Prosecco and pear nectar. If you can’t find the nectar you could also try pear concentrate or make your own pear juice. How do you juice a pear? Why, I’m glad you asked! Well, you get a large pear, and squeeze… oh never mind.
Add about two tablespoons of nectar (or suitable alternative) to each champagne flute and top up with Prosecco. Super easy to make, and the pear adds a really fresh spring flavor to the wine.
Happy Easter Pearade!
