Easter is under a month away and youve probably already being eyeing up all the chocolate eggs.
This one though, combines two pretty excellent things – chocolate and gin.
Manchester patissier and chocolatier Slattery has partnered with local Zymurgorium to created the unicorn and flamingo Easter eggs.
Each egg has a full size 50cl bottle of either Realm of the Unicorn gin, with a toasted marshmallow flavour, or FlaGINgo gin, which is a pink gin with mango, pineapple, passionfruit and ginger.
The milk chocolate shell is constructed around the bottle, then coated in white chocolate and strawberry chocolate and covered with a pearlised finished.
Slattery is famous for their intricate Easter eggs in various themes and colours, including the Game of Thrones theme dragon eggs, circus eggs, complete with top hat, and selfie eggs, with a photo printed on chocolate, but this is the first time they have combined alcohol with their designs.
Unfortunately, they are pretty fragile and are only available from the Slattery store in Manchester and Selfridges and House of Fraser in the city. The eggs can be preordered over the phone by calling 01617679303
The unicorn egg costs £49, while the flamingo is £59.
A spokesperson for Slattery said: All our Easter eggs are made by hand, and we have a skilled team of chocolatiers and cake decorators that are involved in the process. Each year we bring back old favourites like the unicorn and circus egg which are always popular, but we always try and create new and exciting ideas.
As our eggs are handmade and have lots of intricate work, the majority are collection only as they are too fragile to send by courier. We have a small selection on our website that we are able to post throughout the UK.
For another alcoholic Easter option, you can try the M&S Prosecco flavour glittery Easter egg.
