Summer is in its last few weeks, but that doesn’t mean the fun is over. BBQs and outdoor parties are still in full swing. Whether you’re a guest or running the show, there’s one seasonal element we can all appreciate – the refreshments! By now, you’ve probably indulged in tropical concoctions and quenched your thirst with sangria, so it’s time to think outside the box. Hello, edible cocktails.
Edible cocktails are the perfect marriage between an alcoholic beverage and your favorite sweet snack. Here are three favorite examples you can make at home. Cheers and bon appetit!
Jello Shots. The jello shot is a college classic that can be updated for more sophisticated tastes. Jello shots come in all different shapes, colors and flavors, and are perfect for customizing for any theme or holiday. These cucumber lime margarita jello shots are not only picture-perfect but will jazz up every fiesta!
Drunk Watermelon. Think of this edible cocktail as your favorite summer fruit with a kick! Tequila (or vodka if you prefer it) infuses into the watermelon over the course of 24 hours, making this snack sweet, refreshing, and a whole lot of fun. There are a few ways to create a “drunken watermelon” – all of which are relatively easy and mess-free. The best thing about this tasty dish is that it comes in its own container, making it the perfect treat to transport.
Champagne Gummy Bears. This delightful edible cocktail is for the adult who likes to embrace their inner child. Who doesn’t love candy or a bubbly glass of champagne? Champagne gummy bears are the perfect combo of class and nostalgic fun. The prep process is similar to that of drunk watermelon as the sparkling wine is slowly absorbed over a period of 10 hours. The end result is worth all that marinating time! Your friends and guests will appreciate the fizzy decadence of these delicious bites.
