Good & Plenty Martini and Liqueur Recipes



It's National Good & Plenty Day!
We need a fun licorice cocktail for that, right?

THE
GOOD & PLENTY
MARTINI

INGREDIENTS: 1-1/2 Oz. Sambuca
1/2 Oz. Vodka
1/2 Tsp. Grenadine
Good & Plenty Garnish

DIRECTIONS:
Fill a cocktail shaker with ice, add the sambuca, vodka and Grenadine and shake until chilled.
Drop in a couple of Good & Plenty candies and serve.
 
Shake this Vodka and Sambuca goody up for happy hour and enjoy a new way to have your Good & Plentys.

HOW TO MAKE
GOOD & PLENTY LIQUEUR:

You can make some pretty decent licorice liqueur by infusing your favorite vodka with Good & Plenty candy as well!  Simply drop a cup of the candy in with 750 ml. of good vodka and allow them to get good and plenty happy with each other for anywhere from a few days to a few weeks.

The longer you allow the actual licorice under the candy shell to dissolve in the vodka, the more your liqueur will taste like licorice. I like to add a pinch of salt to balance the sweetness of those pink and white candy shells.

Strain the end result through a triple layer of cheesecloth lined metal mesh strainer, bottle and enjoy.

Have a Good day with Plenty of cocktail fun.

PLEASE DRINK RESPONSIBLY
