The taste of peaches in the Pinnacle vodka is so delightful that you’ll instantly be transported somewhere warm and sunny. Whether you’re sitting on the front porch or taking a dip in the pool, this is the ultimate spring weather drink.

½ ounce Hiram Walker blue curacao
¼ ounce mint simple syrup
Blue Peeps Marshmallow garnish

Directions:

Fill a martini shaker with ice. Add the vodka, Margarita mix, blue curacao and mint simple syrup to the ice, then shake for several seconds to mix. Strain into a martini glass and garnish with a blue Peeps.

DIY MARSHMALLOW CANDY VODKA

The recipe, which was put together by Nicole of Baking Bites, is a pretty simple process. Simply put, you need to put roughly 30 of the peep marshmallow candies into a jar, fill the cracks with vodka and just let it sit in the refrigerator for a few days so the flavors infuse into the vodka. I personally liked that Nicole suggests not using the cheap stuff to make the candy vodka, but to not waste an expensive bottle of vodka on the project either. According to the blog, the sweetness from the Peeps is subtle, and the candy vodka works great in many different types of cocktails, just in time for some Easter drinks.
