Total time: 4 hours
Rest time: 4 hours
Ingredients for 3 people
1 bottle of vodka
1 bottle of sprite
2 bags of jolly ranchers
2 bottles of powerade drink
1 cup of mixed berries
Ice cube trays
Nonstick silicone baking mat
Ideally the day before (or 3-4 hours ahead of when you would like to serve the drink), fill the bottle of vodka 1/3 of the way with red and pink jolly ranchers. Add in luster dust. Place the cap back on the bottle and give it a swirl. The longer the bottle sits, the more the jolly ranchers will have time to dissolve which will enhance the color and flavor of the drink.
Pour the powerade into the ice cube trays and freeze until solid.
On a baking sheet lined with a silicone baking mat, line up 3 rows of jolly ranchers. Bake at 400°F for 5 miutes until the jolly ranchers have melted. Wait a minute until the candy has cooled enough then roll around a skewer to create a straw. Remove the skewer before the candy hardens completely. Set aside.
On the same baking mat, place the mugs on their side. Line jolly ranchers on each mug and bake a few minutes. Remove from oven and allow to cool.
In a blender place the powerade ice cubes, sprite and jolly rancher vodka. Mix until smooth. Pour in mugs and serve with jolly rancher straw. Enjoy!
