Her Shot: Cocktails for Candy Lovers

Her Shot / October 22, 2016 / No Comments.

giphyIf candy and booze are your two favorite things, this post is for you. We thought why not put the two together and make some bomb-@ss drinks. With Halloween fast approaching, that means there’s going to be candy around every corner. Might as well drink up if you’re gonna eat up! Let’s adult-ify your favorite sweet treats!

For Cotton Candy lovers, try a Magic Cotton Candy Martini. Combine cotton candy with grape juice and vanilla vodka and you’ve got a deliciously sweet treat. You can also make a kid-friendly version (drop the vodka obviously). Watch the cotton candy disappear as you pour the liquid mixture over it in a martini glass! Recipe

For Twizzler lovers, try a Cherry Bulldog. Bing cherries, star anise, gin and port mixed together encompasses everything you love about Twizzlers. Pro tip: use a Twizzler (or Red Vine) as a straw! Recipe

For Reese’s lovers, try a Chocomole. We know you dig for these bad boys in every candy assortment bag. A chocomole is just as delicious, it combines a Mexican chocolate mixture that uses peanut butter, as well as chile powder and tequila. Recipe

For Tootsie Roll lovers, try a Tootsie Roll. Rye whiskey, Pedro Ximenez sherry and chocolate bitters spell sophisticated indulgence- even if you have one of the classic mini chocolate logs on the side. Recipe

For Sugar Daddy lovers, try a Hot Caramel Buttered Rum. This caramel laden take on a Hot Buttered Rum is as delicious as it sounds. It’s got rum, cinnamon, cloves, nutmeg and honey. Recipe

For Airhead lovers, try a Basil Watermelon Cooler. Ditch the artificially flavored candy and try this delicious cocktail instead. Watermelon, ginger and basil come together with vodka and lime juice for a perfectly refreshing drink. Recipe


Drink Your Booze and Eat It Too

Everyone likes taking shots. Everyone hates cleaning out sticky shot glasses. Sure they’re fun to display in your cabinet, boasting names of every exciting city you’ve traveled to. And the one that looks like a girl in a bikini is always fun to drink from. But there is a better, more delicious way to intoxicate yourself: Edible Shot Glasses.

Some edible shot glasses involve lots of prep and planning, but we’ve found three that are as easy as opening up your cupboard.

Airheads: Grab some candy and throw it in the microwave for 15 seconds to make it easier to mold. Wrap one in a circle and cut another to make a round bottom. Pinch the seams together so that no liquid will escape… then drink.

Strawberries: Slice off the top of your strawberry and dig out the inside to make space for your beverage of choice. It’s basically health food.

Mini Ice Cream Cones: No prep necessary, just make sure you don’t dilly-dally and spring a leak. Melt some chocolate into the bottom for extra support and taste.

Add these to your grocery list and you’ll satisfy your drunk munchies before you even leave the house.
