Until I watched Nadia G. on Bitchen Kitchen's Halloween Special play with some.
What fun! The candy flavor really comes through.
Pick a candy (gummy works great...and so does hard candies). Toss a good handful into a sealable glass jar along with about a cup or so of vodka. Let the candy get sauced for about 2 days, shaking the jar 3 times a day. Strain the vodka and get ready to play.
One jar contained lemon drops, another had gummy peach rings and the third was red vines.
When I strained my vodka, I placed cheese cloth over a mason jar and screwed on a band to hold the cloth in place. Worked beautifully.
And how could I pass up this wicked find?
Brujas and Peotches Halloween Cocktail
2 shots peach (aka peotch) candy vodka
2 shots orange juice
topped with lemon lime soda
Its tangy and sweet...with a hidden bite.
I haven't decided what to do with the other two flavors but I'm sure it won't take me long.
