Basically, if your favorite candy shoppe and your favorite watering hole got married, these are the sweet drinks that would be served at that candy-bar. (See what we did there?)
We're so happy that candy-loving bartenders decided to come up with these amazing candy cocktail recipes. Do you love chocolate? Try the "Liquid Snickers" or the Tootsie Roll-inspired drink. Or maybe fruity candy is more your thing. If that's the case, then the "Gummi Bear Margarita" or "Sour Patch Kids Martini" might be more your style. All of these drinks with candy make us feel like a kid in a very alcoholic candy store!
Take a look at the recipes now, before you decide to whip up your own sweet creation. Some of these candy drinks require you to infuse the liquor with sweets for a few days before you can serve them up. Don't worry, they are totally worth the wait. And don't forget the candy rim (Pixie Stix, Heath Bars, and candy canes) or the garnish (Twizzlers, Gummi Bears, and Pez)!
