Hello there and Happy Halloween! Emma and I have created a fun candy cocktail table to share with you today! There are four different recipes that you can try. We love a cocktail party, and even moreso when there is candy involved…. Enjoy!
First up, we used gumballs and malt balls to make candy bracelets! These are a cute little favor for guests and they were fun to make. Use a tapestry needle and embroidery thread to string them together!
Lemon Drop Cocktail, makes 2
Needed: 4 ounces plain or citrus vodka, 8 ounces club soda, 4 tablespoons citrus simple syrup*, crushed lemon hard candies.
*First you will need to make your citrus simple syrup. Combine 1 cup water and 1 cup sugar in a small pot and boil on medium/high for 15-20 minutes until it reduces a little and becomes a little more syrup-y. Stir in juice from 2 lemons. You can keep this in a container in the refrigerator for up to a week to use in other cocktails or to flavor/sweeten water or tea. Garnish your martini glasses with simple syrup on and crushed lemon drop candy on the rim. Add a few whole lemon candies to the bottom of the glasses, just for fun! In a large jar or small pitcher combine ice cubes with the vodka, club soda and simple syrup. Stir it all up so it's well combined. Drain into martini glasses and serve.
Lollipop Cocktail, makes 2
Fill each glass with 6 ounces of champagne and 1/2 ounce cherry juice. Garnish with lollipops and serve.
Orange Soda Cocktail, makes 2
Needed: 4 ounces vodka, 2 ounces orange juice, 2 ounces club soda, 4 tablespoons citrus simple syrup.
In a large jar or small pitcher combine ice cubes with vodka, juice, club soda, and simple syrup. Stir it all up until it's well combined. Drain into martini glasses and garnish with ring pops on the stems!
Rock Candy Cocktail, makes 2
Needed: 12 ounces chilled champagne or prosecco, and 2 rock candies (any flavor).
Have a very happy Halloween! xo, elsie + emma
