Happy Monday! We are going to keep today as bright and cheery as possible because let's be honest - Monday.
We have a few fun events coming up and I wanted to do something a little different and unique for a drink. Spring is so fun for entertaining and wanted the drink to be just as colorful as the colors around us. I had been to an event a long time ago where they used rock candy to garnish their cocktails, and I used that as a little inspiration for our latest cocktail concoction.
Rock candy totally reminds me of when I was a kid, and when I showed it to my own children they thought it was the funniest lollipop they had ever seen.
After mixing the candy with one of our favorite stand alone drinks (mmm, champs!), I realized the rock candy was actually perfect on several levels as a drink garnish.
The candy doubles as both a flavorful addition as well as an adorable stirrer.
I loved how colorful and fun each of the drinks came out, and while I went for the rainbow effect for spring, you can use a single color to coordinate with any event you have planned.
The multi colored rock candy were each flavored differently so each cocktail was a little surprise when you sipped it. Again if you are looking for consistency I would pick one single color.
