Thirsty Thursday – Peeptini

Peep-peep! We’re getting ready for our favorite pastel holiday with cute shoes and delightful drinks. Come try our version of the potent “Peep-tini”: a refreshingly simple cocktail featuring pink marshmallow-infused vodka and garnished with Easter’s most adorable marshmallow treat. Pleasantly soft, deliciously strong: go ahead and enjoy, all day long.

INGREDIENTS:
1 1/2 ounces pink marshmallow-infused vodka (directions for homemade version below)
3/4 ounce dry vermouth
Ice cubes
Sugar Crystals to decorate Martini glass rim
1 Peeps for garnish

Homemade pink marshmallow vodka: Store together equal parts of sliced-pieces of pink marshmallow Peeps and vodka into jars, refrigerate for 24 hours, and strain until clear of visible marshmallow pieces and excess sugars. Can be refrigerated for a few weeks or stored in the freezer for a couple months.

DIRECTIONS:

Martini glass prep: Decorate the martini glass rim by dipping the top 1/4″ rim of glass into a bowl with the 1 1/2 ounces of the marshmallow-infused vodka and shake off any excess. Gently dip the Martini glass rim into a plate of sugar crystals and carefully rotate the glass until the rim is completely covered.

Peeptini prep: Add infused vodka, vermouth, and 3-4 ice cubes to a shaker and shake. Strain into the Martini glass.

Peep the Peeptini: Cut the Peeps halfway through its underside by using scissors and perch the Peeps onto the glass rim. Time to get cutesy and tipsy!
