Candy Arctic Kiss Cocktail AKA Easter Arctic Kiss Cocktail*
This is a plan-ahead recipe. It’s still easy, but read through first to get the idea. First, make sure you have your ingredients and utensils:
1 bag of Starburst (vegan) Jelly Beans (make sure the bag has different colors of jelly beans)
1 bottle of Vodka
1 bottle of Champagne
Glass Jars with Lids
Cocktail Shaker (or just use one of the glass jars and the strainer)
Next, infuse your vodka:
Pick what colors of cocktails you would like. (I chose yellow, pink, orange, and green.) For each color, put 1/4 cup single-color jelly beans and 1/2 cup vodka in a glass jar. If all of one color is a bit less than 1/4 cup, just use what you have. Let the beans and spirits work their magic for a day or two . . Then jar by jar, strain the jelly beans out of the vodka, keeping the liquids separate. If you’re unsqueamish, eat the gooey jelly bean remnants. (I composted mine.)
Finally, mix your cocktails per serving:
2 ounces jelly bean-infused vodka
3 ounces champagne
1 lemon or lime or orange disc as a garnish (mix and match colors)
Put the vodka and ice in a cocktail shaker and shake.
Add the champagne.
Strain into a glass.
Garnish with a disc.
Before drinking, squeeze the disc into the cocktail. Or if you’re civilized, simply float the disc on the cocktail.
