|The Walking Peep -- zombies for Easter.|
When we issued a challenge to Bloom's
mixologist to make us a cocktail using Peeps for Easter, we thought about a sweet martini -- maybe in candy colors to represent jellybeans or something.
What we got was nothing short of brilliant (and more than a little disturbing). Here's how it played out:See also:

Jaren Rivas, Bloom's bartender, started by placing several berries into a Mason jar. In went raspberries, blackberries, blueberries, and strawberries. "I love fresh berries for spring," he told us. So far, so good. He then added a few sprigs of fresh spearmint, building the cocktail in the glass.
Things got a little weird as Rivas poured in some Ketel
One vodka, lime juice, and house-made chamomile syrup -- all the while
babbling about Easter Sunday being about blood and resurrection.
