Twizzlers pull’n’peel shots because they make mouths happy!
Liccorice is one of my favorite go to candies in my house now that I have kiddos. Why, you ask? Well because liccorice as a treat is relatively mess free. Notice I said relatively because lets face it, kids will find a way to make a mess with just about anything. I have witnessed, first hand, the massive mess that can be made with a single M&M candy by a spunky 4 year old. Or the complete chaos that can be caused thanks to a sticky Starburst in the hands of a wild 2 year old. And don’t get me started on the damage that a 6 year old and a pixy stick can do! So like I said, Liccorice is relatively mss free. Compared to the crumble of a cookie, smears of chocolate, or colorful remnants of candy coatings, liccorice is relatively mess free.
It’s also delicious and fun! And if you want to really have fun, Twizzlers Pull’n’peel is the way to go. Hands down. One piece becomes 9 fun strings to twist, braide, build. Heck whatever you want to do before it makes its way into your mouth! While I typically try to avoid playing with food, Twizzlers pull’n’peel seems like it was just MADE to be played with and make mouths happy! So why fight it’s destiny?
Therefore, in honor of this deliciouly tart yet yummy and let’s not forget fun treat, cherry pull’n’peel shots were a must! These very simple two ingredient shooters (three if you include the pull’n’peel candies themselves) share that familair cherry tart yet yummy flavor that will indeed make your mouth happy!
Ingredients and Barware for 1 shot
1 and 1/4 oz sour cherry vodka
1/4 oz simple syrup
1 piece of Twizzlers pull’n’peel candy, unseparated (optional for garnish, but I can confirm, it does make it more fun)
About the Ingredients
Sour Cherry Vodka is an amazing cherry vodka full of tart flavor without the hint of cough syrup taste.
Simple syrup is simply a mixture of equal parts water and sugar boiled until fully dissolved and slightly thickened. It is a staple ingreditent in most bars as its frequently used to sweeten cocktails without having issues of sugar dissolving fully in a cold drink
Twizzlers pull’n’peel candy made their debut in 1994 with a cherry flavoring in contrast to the standard original twizzlers which contain a strawberry flavor.
How to Make
1.In a 2oz shot glass add 1 and 1/4 oz sour cherry vodka
2.Add 1/4 oz simple suyrp to the top
3.Cut Twizzlers pull’n’peel candy to about 3 inches and add to shot glass (can use to stir the liquids together). So I know the recipe says “unseperated” but, half of the fun of Twizzlers Pull’n’peel comes from pulling and peeling! So I highly encourage you to find some fun with this garnish and let your personality show through! I’m sure you can be more creative then me here and I would love to hear about it and see it!
Tip: If your ingredients are room temperature, add them to a cocktail shaker with ice. Shake vigorously until well mixed and chilled. And then pour into your shot glass. There is nothing quite like the perfectly cooled candy shot!
