Easter is just around the corner which means there is lots of family time to come which sometimes drives me to drink, so BevMo & Pinnacle Vodka were just in time when they shared about their Spring cocktails with me! I am just kidding…I love my family time, but having a few cocktails will make me love them just a little bit more! Hahaha. The awesome cocktail recipes to put together below are just in time for the holiday, but also sound great to enjoy at any season throughout the year….sans Peeps candy of course! I am definitely not a bartender, but these recipes below seem foolproof 🙂 See the three recipes below!
-1.5 ounces Pinnacle Whipped Vodka
-2 ounces pineapple juice -1 ounce orange juice
-½ ounce banana liqueur
-Yellow Peeps marshmallow garnish
Directions Fill a martini shaker with ice. Add the vodka, pineapple juice, orange juice, and banana liqueur and shake until well mixed, about five seconds. Strain into a martini glass and garnish with a yellow Peeps.
Peeps Peach Pool
-1.5 ounces Pinnacle Peach Vodka
-2.5 ounces margarita mix
-½ ounce blue curacao
-¼ ounce mint simple syrup
-Blue Peeps Marshmallow garnish
Directions Fill a martini shaker with ice. Add the vodka, Margarita mix, blue curacao and mint simple syrup to the ice, then shake for several seconds to mix. Strain into a martini glass and garnish with a blue Peeps.
Strawberry Peeps Cake Cocktail -1.5 ounces Pinnacle Cake Vodka -¾ ounce strawberry liqueur
-½ ounce hazelnut liqueur
-1 ounce half & half
-Pink Peeps marshmallow garnish
Directions Fill a martini shaker with ice. Add the vodka, strawberry liqueur, hazelnut liqueur, and half & half. Shake for several seconds to mix and then strain into a martini glass. Garnish with a pink Peeps and serve.
All three of these cocktails aim to please and I loved each and every one of them! Pinnacle Vodka has a light and refreshing flavor. A lot of flavored vodkas are overdone in my opinion and I cannot stand when there is too much sickeningly sweet taste overpowering the beverage, but Pinnacle Vodka seems to hit the spot with the right blend of sweetness!
Another fabulous fact about all of the cocktails above is that they are economical! The prices are very decent at BevMo and Pinnacle Vodka is quite inexpensive and costs $11.96 for a 750 ml bottle on sale, normally $12.99 & $16.99 for the 1.75 liter bottle on sale, normally priced at $19.99! Also all of the flavored liqueurs can be found on sale for low prices at BevMo as well! Make sure to sign up with their rewards program and start accruing regular discounts and coupons!
My favorite beverage out of the three was the Strawberry Peeps Cake Cocktail. Something about the blend of the rich and creamy half and half with the strawberry liqueur & cake flavored vodka got my engine running (as my mother-in-law says anytime she ingests an alcoholic beverage.:) ) Which one sounds the best to you? Please let me know if you try out these recipes. I would love to hear from you below!
