Cotton Candy Martinis

It's Thirsty Thursday, so you know what that means!  If you work full time, you should be winding down with a cocktail after a long day at work.  If you are still in college, you should be preparing your tastebuds for a magnificent elixir, because everyone knows that in college, weekends start on Thursday.

Many people enjoy eating candy and drinking alcohol so I decided to mix the two together since his blog is all candy all the time.  After perusing the web, I found this extraordinary martini that I wanted to share called the Cotton Candy Martini.

It is a perfect drink of choice to celebrate the ending of a week.  It's sweet, bubbly, colorful, and topped off with sugar and actual cotton candy on the rim!  There's no better way to wind down with your family, friends, or significant others than by sipping a Cotton Candy Martini!  Everyone deserves one.  Cheers!

  • Raspberry flavored vodka, 2 oz
  • Chambord (Raspberry liqueur), 1 oz
  • Grenadine, a splash
  • Champagne, a splash
  • Pink cotton candy, a generous chunk
  • Crushed ice
  • Sugar

  • Chill your martini glasses, then moisten the rims. Spread the sugar onto a plate and then invert the glass onto it to get an evenly sugared rim. Set aside.
  • Place the ice in a cocktail shaker, then pour over the vodka and Chambord. To this, add a generous splash of grenadine, and champagne.
  • Shake well for at least a minute.
  • Strain the mixture into the martini glasses, taking care to avoid the sugared rim.
  • Garnish with the cotton candy.
Thanks to for the yummy idea!
