Twizzler Lemonade Cocktail

Happy Thirsty Thursday!  Ever drank a cocktail using a Twizzler as a straw?  If not, you will soon!  The candy cocktail this week is the Twizzler Lemonade Cocktail.  

Twizzlers are a fan favorite for little kids, and grown up kids too!  Trust me, you will have so much fun slurping this drink through a Twizzler straw, and the best part about it, is that you can eat the straw when you are done!

This cocktail takes a bit of preparation....two weeks to be exact.  To get the Twizzler taste in the alcohol, it must be infused for two weeks.  How to do it?

*Take 3 Twizzlers and insert them into any 8 oz. bottle of vodka.
*Let sit for 2 weeks.
*Within these two weeks, the vodka will absorb that yummy Twizzler flavor and turn from clear to a reddish hue.
*Remove Twizzlers from bottle after the two weeks have passed.

Then.....Make sure you have these Ingredients:
*The 8 oz. infused vodka
*4 oz. Lemonade

To concoct the drink:

*Fill a glass with ice
*Pour 4 oz. of lemonade and 1 oz. Twizzler infused vodka in glass.
*Garnish with Twizzler, make sure to cut off the ends so it can be used as a straw

Although this drink takes some preparation, it's worth the wait!  That Twizzler taste that everyone loves makes the drink tastes just like chewing a Twizzler, with a splash of lemonade. YUM!!!

Happy Thirsty Thursday to all and to all a big Cheeeeeers!!!!

Couture Pops

Attention Candy Lovers: You NEED to bling yourself out with a Couture Pop from the Sugar Factory.  Trust me, they are not just your ordinary Lollipop.  

For starters, the stick is made out of colorful crystal rhinestones and looks so dazzling.  The pop comes with refills, so you can keep the stick and always enjoy new flavors, including Green Apple, Blue Raspberry, Pina Colada, Watermelon, Creamy Orange, Cherry, and Bubblegum!  And lastly, celebs absolutely LOVE them!

There is a Signature Series line of Pops designed by Britney Spears, Kim Kardashian, Hello Kitty, Mel B, and The Pussycat Dolls!  

I purchased a Watermelon Kim Kardashian Pop because I thought her design was the cutest.  It had pink and white rhinestones with a very cute design.  The Lollipops are a little bit steep in price, selling at $22-$25 bucks per Pop!  But it sure is worth it, just to say you've tried one, and a special keepsake for all candy lovers out there.

Next time that you plan a trip to Vegas, make the Sugar Factory at the Paris hotel your first stop.  It's an awesome candy store and dozens of celebs are spotted there all the time!  Just make sure you bring your camera, just in case you run into your favorite celeb and you can both pose with your Couture Pops.  The store has a bunch of cute clothes too, check out my findings below!  LOVE, CANDY, ROCK & ROLL!
