Nadia G's Bitchin Kitchen Halloween Candy Infused Vodka



Firstly, I wanted to express my sadness for all the victims who have lost their lives in this horrific hurricane, my prayers go out to all the families. And prayers to all those people who lost their homes in that terrible massive fire in Queens last night. I know I was complaining about my dumb uprooted tree and all the property damage but I have to say my neighborhood experienced the less severe aspect of this brutal storm. Thank God it's over and now we can start putting back together the pieces. I hope everyone is safe and has their power restored quickly.

Due to the Hurricane mess I didn't have time to add a thorough product review so I'll be adding a quick and fun post on Halloween Candy Infused Vodka from my favorite Food Network TV star, Nadia G's Bitchin Kitchen. If you have never seen her series check her out because it's definitely not your mother's cooking show. She's funny, fierce and can really throw down in the kitchen. This recipe for her candy vodka was part of this year's Halloween special and is a really fabulous idea to turn cocktail hour with the girlies into a drink fest for your sweet tooth. I promise to resume my usual posting soon and to announce the winners. Please have patience. Thank you. Stay beautiful! XOXO

1/3 cup peach gummies
1/3 cup sour cherry balls
1/3 cup lemon and lime gummy bears

Sour Cherry Cola
Lime slices
Cola

Vodka Lemonade 
Lemonade
Fresh mint
Lemon soda
Gummy bears for garnish

Peach Ring Martini
Fresh orange juice
Splash of cranberry
Peach ring for garnish

Recipe tools
6 mason jars
Cheesecloth
Highball glass
Whiskey glass
Swizzle stick
Martini glass
  
Directions Making the infused vodka: To a jar add 1 cup vodka and peach gummies. Repeat with 2 more jars, filling with cherry balls and gummy bears. Let it sit for two days, shaking three times a day (just hum the tune). Strain through a cheesecloth into three clean mason jars.

Making the sour cherry cola: To a highball glass add ice, an ounce of sour cherry ball vodka, a few lime slices and top off with cola.

Making the Vodka Lemonade: To a whiskey glass add ice, an ounce of lemon and lime vodka, lemonade, fresh mint, and top with a splash of lemon soda. Garnish with gummy bears impaled on a swizzle stick.

Making the peach martini: To a martini glass add ice, an ounce of peach ring vodka, fresh orange juice, and a splash of cranberry. Garnish with a peach ring.

It’s Halloween, and just because you’re not going door to door for candy or pranking, doesn’t mean you don’t deserve some of the sweetness this holiday has to offer. Sip responsibly, or end up with your shoe stuck in the neighbors jack-o-lantern, your choice. Happy Halloween!

Thanks for posting the recipes. The Cooking Channel posted all of her food recipes but not the drink recipes. I did a google search and found your blog.
