Friday’s Dessert w/ Alcohol: Cotton Candy Martini – Cotton Candy Cosmo Recipe

So I came across this recipe tonight for alcohol infused cotton candy – awesome! It’s incredibly easy to make too (which always inspires me way more than something that has too many things going on at once).  The main ingredients consist of well, cotton candy.  Oh yes and cotton candy vodka (didn’t even know THAT existed!), Cranberry juice and x-rated fusion liquor.  Check out this yummy adult beverage (er’ dessert) right here courtesy of The Cocktail Envy.  Enjoy yourselves and have a fantastic weekend (and if you are my friend Erin in Minnesota? You can drink these while you are out shoveling snow!)

Happy weekend y’all! How about some Apple Vodka infused into your cake ingredients! After researching many places and coming across many “alcohol in dessert recipes” I believe this is probably the one that I have really been excited about. Oh, anything with Bailey’s in it too.  You can find the recipe right here from the fantastic recipe site at Just A Pinch.

Cheers to a fabulous weekend!
