Who doesn’t love Candy? Just the word “Candy” paired with the word “Cocktail” is one to put a smile on anyone’s face. I couldn’t resist sharing this with you today! The Candy Cocktail!
Every year, a couple of really cool gals I know throw a holiday party for their gal pals to benefit Toys for Tots. Cocktails and Candy is this event I look forward. It kicks off the holiday season, and the festive feels are all around, with it’s theme of giving, candy, and of course cocktails! The huge spread of candy for all of the guests to enjoy and to take home to their littles is literally, “eye candy”, no pun intended. The beautifully adorned table it fulled with candy that’s ranges from classic favorites to holiday specialty items. It’s unreal! It’s definitely not the place to be if you’re watching your sugar, and it’s a candy-lover’s dream come true! Part of that is also those delightful drinks, and this was the drink this year. It was so yummy, I went to the bartender to ask her about it because it was too good NOT to share!
Christie, the bar tender, was so kind and delightful to share this yummy, candy tasting cocktail she created. So bear with me, because she, like me, does a lot of her cooking and food prep without measuerments. That’s how this one goes. It’s made in a large container for a crowd. So if you’re having a party, this is your cocktail.
- Pama Pomegranate Liquor
- Creme de Cassis
- Pineapple juice
- Apple juice
- Ginger ale
- Club Soda
Christie literally said she was making it, with no measurements and was like, “hmmm, it needs a little of this… let’s try apple juice! Ok now it needs something else… let’s try Sprite!.” So this recipe came about as throwing a bunch of stuff together, and turning out divine! It’s sweet like candy, not sour to make you pucker, but not syrupy either. It’s literally pefection. So much so that I didn’t have just one!
That’s it! And of course she rimmed it with pink sugar!
So next time you need a fun candy-ish kinda concoction, throw all of this together, and voila! It’s a candy cocktail! Thank you to Elyse and Amy for hosting this party and including me. And thank you Christie, the bartender for your yummy drink!
