I love creating new cocktails using flavored alcohol but hate spending the money on a big bottle of a single flavor or paying upwards of $3 for the sample size. This year as I start preparing for our Halloween party creating new drinks, I remembered a “pin” I saw a long time ago to make your own flavored vodka at home.
The concept is simple. Find a flavored candy you love and add it to the vodka and let it dissolve. I chose Jolly Ranchers since the package has a great variety of simple flavors that are great for mixing and I love the colors!
I ran down and bought a big bottle of Smirnoff Vodka and some Starbucks frappuccino
in glass bottles. Why the Starbucks? Well, I needed some smaller bottles for mixing so it was a whole lot cheaper to purchase the Frappuccino’s vs. decorative bottles plus I got to drink the coffee… win-win!
Now don’t miss the fun labels I made for the bottles and all the fun new cocktail recipes I made coming soon!!
