Cotton Candy Cosmo!
Why Not Make This As Your Signature Wedding Drink?
While visiting in Wisconsin, the week before my brother-in-law’s wedding, we all went out to dinner at this place called O’Charley’s. I thought it would be fun to share a cocktail with my awesome soon-to-be sister-in-law, so she told me about one of her favorite drinks there – the Cotton Candy Cosmo!
Her and I are a lot alike, I also love cosmopolitans! However, this wasn’t your typical cosmo. Basically, they serve you a martini glass with cotton candy inside. As they pour the cosmopolitan mix over the cotton candy, it dissolves and creates a truly delicious cocktail!
Here’s a picture of it at our table, in action as the waitress poured this pretty little drink:
Since it was such a yummy martini, I only had one…I didn’t want to get too tipsy! It got me thinking though – what a fun cocktail this would be to serve at a wedding! Since we all know how strong martinis can be, maybe it would be best to just serve one round to adult guests, as a pretty presentation during dessert.
If you love this idea and crave the recipe, here it is. Just take the following ingredients, shake, pour over cotton candy and enjoy:
1 -1/2 oz SKYY Vodka
1/2 oz XR Fusion Liquor
1 oz Cranberry Juice
