Saturday Sips: The Peep-a-Booze Cocktail—a Real Peeple Pleaser


Peeps... You either love 'em or hate 'em. (Seriously, I've never met anyone who is ambivalent about the colorful marshmallow treats.)

My take? They're adorable little pillow-y bunnies of sugar—really, what's not to like?

Okay, fine, they sort of taste like nothing and have a weird granulated texture, but the cuteness factor trumps everything else. And they make for some super-fun holiday projects and edible crafts. Like these and these and this (oh, Pinterest, we heart you!).

But my favorite use for those neon nuggets of sweetness: cocktails! (Where my Peeps-lovin' peeps at now?) Who wouldn't want to sip a bright and potent Peep-a-Booze cocktail on Easter Sunday (or, you know, today?). I'm just saying—this recipe could convert even the most avid party pooper into a hard-core party peeper!

You can find multiple variations of a Peep martini online, but here's how I made mine:

  • 2 parts marshmallow vodka (I used Pinnacle Marshmallow Vodka, but you can make your own Peeps-infused vodka too--just follow this recipe, but, of course, replace your candy hearts with Peeps!)
  • 1 part champagne (or you can also use a flavored sparkling water--I just like the bubbles!)
  • Splash of grenadine for color (and extra sweetness!)
  • Cut a slit into the bottom of your bunny Peep (or two! or three!) for garnishing your glass
  • Enjoy!
