ASTORIA — A Queens sports bar is putting a boozy twist on everyone's favorite marshmallow animals.

Rocky McBride's, at 27-01 23rd Ave. in Astoria, is serving Easter-themed cocktails all weekend, including a Peeps martini and a peeps-blended daiquiri drink.

"We do themed drinks pretty much every weekend. We have events for almost everything," said bar manager Jenna Marie Mascetti, 30, who said she finds most of her unique cocktail recipes online.

"Pinterest has so many great things," she said.

This weekend, bar goers can indulge in two versions of a Peeptini, both garnished with a Peep on the edge of the glass for $7. 

The first blends the actual peeps in a blender with vanilla vodka and cream, daiquiri-style. The second shakes Pinnacle whipped vodka with Godiva white chocolate liqueur and grenadine.

The bar will also be serving up Blue Cottontails for $6, a colorful holiday drink that combines cotton candy-flavored vodka with triple sec and Curaçao.

A $7 Eastertini comes with Godiva white chocolate liqueur, whipped vodka, amaretto, a little bit of crème do coco and a splash of grenadine for color, all served in a rainbow-sprinkle rimmed martini glass.

"We want to make them colorful," Mascetti said.

Vodka-based Jelly Bean Shots go for $4, and come with a vodka-soaked candy bean at the bottom of the shot glass.
