Because Candy Is Much More Fun To Drink!

Jelly beans in martini glass

 

Candy! We love it, and probably shouldn’t be eating it. So how about drinking it? We know you probably have been going crazy every time you walk in ANY store and that first aisle you see nothing but the sugary sweetness as you make your way to the aisles you actually NEED to get things from.

Here are three really fun cocktails that we found on a site called She Knows and we think will make you forget all about those Peeps…except for when you are garnishing your glass! Cheers!

Sparkling Jelly Bean Martini Recipe

Jewel-colored jelly beans make a stunningly bright infused vodka. Try flavors like cherry or strawberry for a fruity and refreshing cocktail.
