By Cooking Panda
It’s time to let loose and indulge. What’ll it be: booze or dessert?
Dilemmas, dilemmas. And this is a near-impossible one.
But you know what? You are a gosh darn adult. You can have both, for goodness’ sake!
If you are technically grown up but secretly a kid at heart, you are probably well aware of the joy of candy-sweet cocktails. Why not whip up a drink based on your favorite sweet treat and let beautiful things happen?
Love the gentle creamy mint taste of this boxed classic? Why not turn it into a rich, elegant dessert cocktail?
This tastes just like the chewy fruity candy. Jokes are not attached, but you’ll be making your own after a few sips of the strong, sweet drink.
This one calls for marshmallow vodka, though you can use any similarly sweet flavor, like whipped cream or birthday cake.
Just like its namesake, the Nilla Wafer Martini is a little sweet and simple but won’t hit you over the head with heavily concentrated, syrupy concoctions that can be a little tough to stomach at times. This two-ingredient treat makes for a perfect and easy after dinner sipper.
Remember everyone’s favorite popsicle as kids? If you think about it, sweet orange and cream is the absolutely perfect environment to add a few drops of booze. How did I not think of this before?
You’ve probably had vodka gummy bears, but why not put a new and honestly waaaay better-tasting spin on the boozy snack by soaking soda bottle gummies in a ton of smooth whiskey? It’s the perfect combo. Plus, who doesn’t want to get buzzed off candy?
Remember those chewy, spicy cinnamon candies everyone used to love? Well it turns out that those flavors go perfectly with tequila. A few of these and you’ll definitely be feeling nostalgic.
