How To Pair Peeps in Your Cocktail

Peeps can be a controversial candy. Some individuals may find the sugary snack to be too sweet, but if you’re a fan (even just for Easter), then you have to try this mixed drink! It’s the perfect blend of sweetness balanced by a delicious strawberry syrup and an effervescent finish from the sparkling water. If you’re intrigued, that means it’s time to try it! 

For this cocktail, I used the Pink Peeps Marshmallow Chicks to create the Peeps-infused vodka and the Yellow Peeps Marshmallow Bunnies for the garnish. To create your Peeps-infused vodka, start by adding the Peeps and your preferred vodka (see my recommendations below) to a glass jar and seal tightly. Let the ingredients infuse for a minimum of 2 hours, shaking the jar occasionally. The mixture should turn a pink hue. Finally, strain out the Peeps and store the mixture in an airtight container while you prep the other ingredients. Once your cocktail is complete, add your desired Peep to the top of your cocktail for a finished look!
