Hey Gals! A couple weeks ago we posted a little teaser on Instagram of our new favorite Easter cocktail, the Flaming Peeptini, and today I'm finally posting the recipe!
I've had this idea floating around for over a year now, and I've finally been able to perfect it!
The cocktail itself couldn't be easier to make - 2 parts Marshmallow Vodka and 2 parts Caramel Baileys
The trick is getting that little pink clown to catch fire
After many trial and errors... and a busted martini glass
|Turns out, plastic martini glasses and flaming drinks don't really get along.. imagine that!|
I finally figured out how to get the Peep nice and charred
|sorry little fella!|
After you mix-up your cocktail, pour some over-proof alcohol into a shot glass - you don't need a ton, but just be sure it's a high proof. Unfortunately your standard vodka isn't going to cut it, so I opted for the cheapest over-proof rum I could find.
Don't worry, you won't end up tasting it - all of the alcohol ends up burning off during your little bonfire in a glass
Next, carefully light the shot on fire - I recommend using one of those long lighters that are typically used for lighting candles
Then, once your shot is on fire, put the lighter flame on your peep and slowly pour a little bit of the shot over it.
Say your farewells to your Peep as the flame in your glass eventually goes out, and of course, thank him for having the courage to sacrifice himself for the greater good of your cocktail
And that's it! I'm not going to lie, this one is a little tricky but I promise it's worth it - not only is the Peep super delicious after getting burnt to a boozy crispy, but it's also one hell of a show!
Now, if you're more of an anti-Peep cruelty sort of Gal, you can always opt to just float the Peep on top of the cocktail and skip the pyrotechnics - either way, I promise the cocktail is so, so good!
The marshmallow vodka gives it the distinct Peep flavor, while the caramel Baileys makes it sugary sweet, just like the crunchy pink outside
