Just a Cup o' Nerds Cocktail

Happy Thirsty Thursday!  Yeah, yeah, I know it's the highlight of your week!  Might as well just say TGITT (Thank goodness it's Thirsty Thursday!)  Since the best day of the week has finally come, let's get down to business.  This week, we are making a drink called, Just a Cup o' Nerds.
It is delicious, let me tell you!  Here's a little bit about the drink:
*Dangerous-Almost like there is no alcohol in it!*
*Super Tasty-tastes like Fruit Punch but is a greenish color*
*Scrumptious- not too sweet. For those of you that don't like sweet drinks, you need to try it!*
1 oz Midori
1 oz Blue Curacao Liquor

Cover the rim of any fun looking glass with Nerds candy.  Pour Midori and Blue Curacao into glass.  Fill the remaining space with lemonade.
This drink is the perfect drink for grown ups with that still "have the kid in them." The colorful greenish potion combined with the Nerdaround the rim of the glass will brighten anyone's day.  It is such a fun drink, perfect for a hot summer day.  And did I mention, it takes about 60 seconds to whip up?  Life can't get any better.  


Thank you to Candy Crate for the yummy idea and for supplying me with the recipe and candy :)


  1. how do you stick the nerds to the cup?

  2. Hey Gabs, just dip the rim of the glass in water, then dip the rim in a bowl full of Nerds and it will stick! Thanks for reading!

  3. You say to pour over ice cubes, but there aren't ice cubes in your glass that's wouldn't put ice cubes in a martini glass.
