Jolly Rancher Vodka Cocktail

Jolly Ranchers + Vodka = Jolly Rancher Vodka!

My favorite part of Halloween is settling down after trick-or-treating and sorting through my daughter’s candy, picking out my favorites and sipping on a cocktail. This year, I’ll be sipping on a Jolly Rancher Vodka Cocktail. That’s right! I put candy in my cocktail!

Jolly Rancher candies are known for their big, distinct flavors and when they’re dissolved in your favorite vodka you get a vodka bursting with those familiar flavors. You can sip it straight or on the rocks but if you don’t want to grow chest hair or prefer a more subtle drink you can shake it into this Jolly Rancher Vodka Cocktail. Shoot for one part Jolly Rancher Vodka, two to three parts Sprite, Ginger Ale or sparkling water and a squeeze of fresh lime juice. Yum, yum and yum.

You have to make this one ahead of time. It takes about 8-10 hours for the candies to completely dissolve in the vodka, but believe me, it’s worth the wait. I like to separate the candies, adding one flavor to each bottle of vodka, but feel free to mix them up for a fruity combination.

So, when you’re sorting through the Halloween candy to make sure it’s ‘safe,’ swipe the Jolly Ranchers and get ready for a Jolly Rancher Vodka cocktail and a good time!
