DIY Easter Candy Cocktail Recipe [EXPERT]
Culinary Expert Zoe Rogers brings you grown-up spin on your favorite seasonal kids' candy!

To garnish the Martini glass: Garnish with a Pink Bunny Peeps—using a scissors, cut the Peeps halfway up the side of its base (so when slipped onto the rim of the glass the bunny faces you from across the glass)—place the Peeps on the glass rim so it sticks to the glass and it looks like the photo here for a touch of whimsy, and serve.

Vodka Infusion for Pink Bunny Peeps Easter Candy Cocktail or Peeptini:

Makes ¾ cup (6 ounces) Pink Bunny Peeps marshmallow candy-infused vodka

4 Pink Bunny Peeps® marshmallow candy
¾ cup (6 ounces) top-shelf vodka

Place the 4 Pink Bunny Peeps into a clean (preferably new) 12-ounce, wide-mouthed, glass jar with airtight screw top, such as a jam-or Mason jar, pour in the vodka over the Peeps, and tightly screw on the jar top.

Refrigerate the mixture for 1 day, shaking the jar vigorously 4 to 6 times during the 24-hour-long-period, and return it to the refrigerator. You will notice that after the 1 day, the Peeps will not be completely dissolved, just partially, that is the goal for this recipe.

Strain the mixture through a fine-meshed sieve into a bowl, and discard the contents of the sieve. The infused vodka left behind in the bowl is now ready to serve and to make cocktails like this one here.

Clean the jar and screw top well, and pour the infused vodka back into it, store in the freezer up to 2 months.
