CANDY COCKTAILS

This week I created the perfect summer treat… Candy cocktails! I didn’t even use alcohol… You can really use whatever drink is your favorite (lemonade, fruit juices, soda, etc). Who wouldn’t love a drink adorned with candy? These are the perfect addition to a summer party and look as good as they taste!

First, I snagged some cocktail glasses from the dollar tree and first dipped them in colored sugar. Then, I added gummy raspberries, blackberries, and strawberries to drink skewers, mini fruit slices on the sides of the glass and gummy twin cherries in the bottom of the drink itself. Let’s talk about these candies for a minute… Why are mini fruit slices so much cuter and taste even better than the normal size?! Also, the gummy strawberries are probably one of my new favorite candies and I’ve always been a fan of gummy raspberries, blackberries and twin cherries! YUM. Finally, for a fun touch I used different colored straws to complete the drink! I found all of my candy for candy cocktails online at Oh! Nuts. They have the biggest variety of just about any candy you could want!

Candy cocktails are so simple to make and make any part that much sweeter! Try making them yourself and let me know how it goes!

Hey Guys! Sorry I have been MIA lately. I feel like I haven’t been home at all for the past couple of months. We went home to Oregon for my brother’s mission farewell, then my parents came to Utah, and this past week we just got back from a week in the Caribbean! I am excited for things to slow down now and enjoy summer and being outside playing some tennis. I’ve had bunch of photos I’ve been meaning to share with you guys (no, I haven’t stopped trying all kinds of candy) so here are a few of my favorites lately! Stay tuned for some sweet summer candy inspiration coming soon!
