Nothing is more festive and playful than a big fluffy cloud of cotton candy, unless it's a big fluffy cloud of it in a martini glass just waiting to play with some booze. This is a particularly fun cocktail for birthday and bachelorette parties because it can be a great interactive party cocktail:
Set up a Cotton Candy Martini Bar
complete with individual cocktail shakers, martini glasses, a bucket of ice, different flavors/colors of cotton candy, assorted mixers, garnishes and a fun assortment of flavored spirits.
Print out the Ingredients and Directions below and set them in a visible location on the serving area.
(Pre-rim enough glasses with some multi colored sprinkles.)
Set out an assortment of flavored vodkas and rums and some fun shot glasses. (The shot glasses could be a party favor for each guest.)
Don't forget some fun, colorful cocktail napkins, paper plates and paper coasters from The Martini Diva Boutique!
Have chilled pitchers of the various unsweetened fruit juices including fresh lemon, lime, orange, pineapple, and cranberry juice, along with some chilled cans of plain and flavored soda waters.
Add an assortment of fruit and fun candy garnishes and some colorful cocktail picks then let your guests shake their own combos and watch the merriment ensue.
The fun part is watching the cotton candy melt as the cocktail mixture is poured over.
If you really want to go all out you can buy a small cotton candy machine.
Tip: You can buy pre-bagged cotton candy in a large variety of colors and flavors from Walmart, other superstores and online.
