We’ve been counting down the days (read: hours, minutes, seconds) to the Easter Bank Holiday Weekend since the stroke of midnight on 1st January and FINALLY the four-day weekend is upon us.

As well as a lovely long-weekend and a break from the daily grind, Easter’s also all about guilt-free over-indulgence. And what better way to celebrate the end of a long and painful Lent (if your attempt at giving up chocolate lasted longer than our 27 minutes) than testing out all the fancy shmancy Easter cocktails and EGG-stravagent Easter events across the UK.

Here’s our pick of some of the best on offer this weekend:

Honey Bunny at Be At One

We all love to make the most of the Be At One Happy Hours, right? And this weekend there's absolutely no excuse to call it a day after one (not that we do very often...) This Easter they're upping their chocolatey cocktail game with the Honey Bunny. A mix of Mozart Dark Chocolate, honeycomb pieces and ice cream, served in a Be At One Easter egg box with a Crunchie chocolate bar. YUM.
