A Candy Cocktail Party

1

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!

2

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!

3

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.

4

Lollipop Cocktail, makes 2

Fill each glass with 6 ounces of champagne and 1/2 ounce cherry juice. Garnish with lollipops and serve.

5

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!

6

Rock Candy Cocktail, makes 2

Needed: 12 ounces chilled champagne or prosecco, and 2 rock candies (any flavor).

Fill two flutes with champagne or prosecco, garnish with rock candy just before serving.

Have a very happy Halloween! xo, elsie + emma

PS. Don't drink? Remeber you can make any cocktail into a mocktail by replacing the alchohol with sparkling juice, club soda or ginger ale! ♥

  • Love the piece, but the champagne flute with rock candy killed me. Rock candy?? It would kill the flavor of any sparkling wine – not to even think about real champagne. Check plus for presentation. Check minus for mixology.
    You could achieve the same look- still have a hoppin cocktail by doing Gin, soda, canton ginger liquor, a smidge of lemon juice + the rock candy. The ginger liquor would also balance the sweetness of the candy so you have an option for those that aren’t that into total sugar shock. 😉

  • The rock candy cocktail is so pretty! I can imagine all the diff colors 🙂

  • Can’t wait to try all these {the right way} in 6-7 months… Currently pregnant and missing my lady drinks!! 😉
    xoxo

  • I can’t decide whether the Lollipop Cocktail or the Rock Candy Cocktail sounds the best. I’m a big fan of champagne (and I’m a big fan of not waiting for New Years to drink it!).

  • Absolutely gorgeous! The colours, the drinks, the candy bracelets … It’s all so pretty.

  • I fell myself (ex barman) very confortable with this post!

  • Very cute! i love cocktails.. I worked in a cocktail bar for a year and a half and I really miss it

    These look lovely, I’ll have to try them x

  • now that is the perfect grow-up halloween celebration! any excuse to drink something that pretty is a-okay by me.

  • This is a great idea! The rock candy cocktail sounds delicious!

  • Oh geezepeetes, this is too cute!! We had a Halloween costume party Saturday, but maybe I need to just throw a “Candy” party or something! These all look delish!

  • Cute! I need to start working on stocking a little liquor cabinet – there are only so many cocktails you can make with Jack Daniel’s alone! The rock candy champagne is just too adorable 🙂

  • Such cute ideas, you ladies are so creative. I am so inspired by you every time I read! Have a cocktail for me!

  • Those cocktails look so yummy! Everything on the table looks soooo cute! 🙂
