So I lied: More cocktails today…Easter candy martinis to be exact

I know, I know. I just said in my last post that I wasn't turning this into a cocktails-only blog. And here I am with the third cocktail post in a row. Contrary to what it may look like, I swear I don’t just sit around in a drunken stupor...I truly do cook (and eat) real food.

Actually, I made these martinis weeks ago for an article, and now that the article is live, I just had to share. These are too fun not to share…I mean, it’s candy in drink form. What’s not to love about that?

Originally, my thought was to make all of these cocktails with candy-infused vodka. I knew jelly beans would work, but I wasn’t sure about other candy. Since nothing says Easter like disgusting marshmallow Peeps, I threw a few bunnies into a jar of vodka and crossed my fingers. A few days later after the vodka had turned neon yellow, I removed the grossly gelatinous Peeps and took a tiny sip, which I immediately spit into the sink. Horrendous doesn’t even begin to describe it…it tasted nothing like marshmallow and more like window cleaner mixed with gasoline. Also worth noting: the Peep's eyes and noses stayed completely intact through the infusion process, which I find incredibly disturbing. What is this stuff made of that vodka doesn't dissolve it?? In conclusion, if forced to, I’d rather eat a Peep than drink Peep vodka, which says a lot. My infusing stopped there and I decided to just mimic the flavors of the other candy instead.

So I called on my dad and his bartending skills, and in a crazy test kitchen session, we came up with these Easter martinis…click here to jump to the recipes.

Now this is the way to get your Easter candy fix!


  1. The peep martini made me smile and the Cadbury one made me whisper, 'oh my gosh.' I'd call that success.

    Your description of the results from trying to infuse peeps, however, totally gross.

    1. Such a Amazing and Attractive section of content. I just stumbled upon your blog and in accession capital to assert that I acquire actually enjoyed account and your blog posts.

  2. Wow, all of these look amazing. Very creative!

  3. I'll take a Jelly Bean Martini! That sounds fabulous. They all do really. I take it Peeps are a lot like a twinkie and are able to withstand an atomic blast and all? Yuk!

  4. Hahaha, I'll never be able to look at peeps the same way again! I want to reach through the screen for that jelly bean martini!

  5. You and your martinis...I wish you lived closer!!!

  6. One EggMartini please! These all look fantastic, I bet these would be a hit with my friends :)

  7. Peeps in vodka - scary! Peeps standing next to a lovely martini, not scary!

  8. Very pretty cocktails : ) How does one obtain the fluffed marshmallow vodka for the Marshmallow Peep Martini?

    1. @Jenn - Smirnoff makes a fluffed marshmallow flavored vodka, which is what I used, and is available anywhere that has a decent selection of other flavored vodkas. (I got it at BevMo.)

  9. Right now I am ready for one of each... at least a couple of tastes. Looks real good!

  10. those are delicious ideas! those cocktails really sound perfect

  11. those colorful drinks..need one of each!

  12. I'm new to the page. Like brand new. Are there recipes for these?

    1. @Anonymous - The recipes are in another article I wrote, which is linked in the fourth paragraph, as well as on all the titles of the drinks.

  13. Thank you! I feel silly now that I didn't click on the links or read everything thuroughly. I was too excited thinking about trying one (or all) of these! They look so yummy! I might be a bit tipsy this Easter!

  14. These must've been so fun to develop! That's so weird about the eyes, aren't they just different food coloring? Creepy. I'm going to try this one out. Someone left a half bottle of the marshmallow vodka at my house- which I'm not too fond of mixed with a single mixer... I'm sure this is a big improvement.

  15. mmm...such a cool idea. I want to try the cadbury martini that looks delicious.
