There's nothing better than candy-coated cocktails for the fall weather movie marathons. I love to make a sweet treat to go with my popcorn and other movie snacks. This week I'm sharing my three favorite candy cocktails to enjoy for your next movie marathon. Check them out!
Halloween is so Spirited
2 oz Cherry vodka
1 oz Cointreau
1oz lime juice
3 dashes of Spiced cherry bitters
Garnish: Luxardo Cherry
Recipe: In a cocktail shaker, pour cherry vodka, cointreau, lime juice, and spiced cherry bitters. Shake until cold. Pour into a chilled martini glass. Garnish with a Luxardo cherry.
PRO TIP: This cocktail is a perfect sour and savory pair for salty snacks! I would suggest peanuts or almonds. And maybe a Vincent Price movie
An Apple Caramel Disaster
2 oz Bourbon
1 oz Apple liqueur
1 oz Lemon juice
1 drizzle of Caramel
Garnish: Caramel drizzle on the inside of the cocktail glass
Recipe: In a mixing glass, pour bourbon, apple liqueur, and lemon juice. Stir to combine. In a coupe glass, drizzle some (salted if you have it) caramel into the inside of the glass. Then chill the glass. When ready, pour from the mixing glass.
PRO TIP: This cocktail is perfect for nights that are just getting a little chilly. Using the caramel in the glass, you add an extra bit of sweetness so I highly encourage savory or light flavored snacks. It's great with pumpkin seeds or popcorn.
2 oz Malted Whiskey
1/2 oz Cointreau
1 oz lemon juice
3 dashes of Chocolate bitters
Garnish: M&M Rim
Recipe: In a cocktail shaker, pour malted whiskey, cointreau, lemon juice, and chocolate bitters. Give it a nice shake! Pour into a chilled martini glass.
PRO TIP: Crush those M&Ms and make a fun rim. It's a great cocktail for when you want to be sophisticated but also want to eat candy. The perfect holiday drink.
