Drinks Candy Infused Vodka
It might be easy, but there’s nothing adult about sitting down with a 90 piece box of fun size candy and devouring it. We’ve always been particularly fond of treats of the gummy variety, so it’s time we reclaimed them. And since we know you still can’t get Nadia G’s “let em sit for two days, shake em three times a day,” outta yer head…
you might as well do what you’re singing and mix up these Candy Infused Vodkas! This might just be the most wicked #TuesdayBoozeday yet!
3 cups premium vodka
1/3 cup peach gummies
1/3 cup sour cherry balls
1/3 cup lemon and lime gummy bears
Sour Cherry Cola
Gummy bears for garnish
Peach Ring Martini
Fresh orange juice
Splash of cranberry
Peach ring for garnish
6 mason jars
Making the infused vodka: To a jar add 1 cup vodka and peach gummies. Repeat with 2 more jars, filling with cherry balls and gummy bears. Let it sit for two days, shaking three times a day (just hum the tune). Strain through a cheesecloth into three clean mason jars.
Making the sour cherry cola: To a highball glass add ice, an ounce of sour cherry ball vodka, a few lime slices and top off with cola.
Making the Vodka Lemonade: To a whiskey glass add ice, an ounce of lemon and lime vodka, lemonade, fresh mint, and top with a splash of lemon soda. Garnish with gummy bears impaled on a swizzle stick.
Making the peach martini: To a martini glass add ice, an ounce of peach ring vodka, fresh orange juice, and a splash of cranberry. Garnish with a peach ring.
It’s Halloween, and just because you’re not going door to door for candy or pranking, doesn’t mean you don’t deserve some of the sweetness this holiday has to offer. Sip responsibly, or end up with your shoe stuck in the neighbors jack-o-lantern, your choice. Happy Halloween!
