One of my goals this year is to break out of my standard cocktail themes and branch into some more unique flavor combinations. When wayfair reached out looking for a cocktail recipe using cotton candy I knew that this was perfect to go along with my goal.
I decided to go with a Sweet & Sour theme for my cocktail – Sweet coming from the cotton candy, and sour from homemade rhubarb vodka.
- 2 oz Rhubarb Vodka
- 3 oz Ginger Ale
- Splash Triple Sec
- Garnish with palm size cloud of pink vanilla cotton candy
- Use a cotton candy machine to make a cloud of pink vanilla cotton candy
- In a glass, stir together vodka, ginger ale, and triple sec
- Dissolve the cotton candy into the cocktail and enjoy.
Since cotton candy is simply sugar, just place it into the cocktail to dissolve the sugar into the cocktail for a burst of sweetness.
This cocktail is definitely unique and a great way to add a mixture of both tartness from the rhubarb and sweetness from the cotton candy. The pink vanilla flavor works the best as it adds sweetness without adding an overpowering flavor.
I am looking forward to trying out more ways to use cotton candy. This cocktail would be a great addition to a kid’s birthday party (so that the parents can enjoy some treats as well). Make sure to check out all the cotton candy supplies that are available on Wayfair!
How would you enjoy cotton candy in a cocktail?
