We Drank Too Much & Made Candy Infused Vodka [Recipe]

We made candy vodkaWhere do we begin?

Sometimes, the heat gets to be a little much – both around the city and in our offices – and we find ourselves wanting to try crazy things. While we’ve always enjoyed playing with infusions (especially vodka infusions), we never thought we’d try something quite this… irreverent. However, after a little thought, we decided that an ongoing office joke (candy-infused vodka) might actually be a good idea. After all, it’s an inexpensive, sweet solution to amping up some ordinary juice. It turns out this simple experiment (which you can easily do at home) produces spirits that are both colorful and yummy. Splash these vodkas in lemonade or iced tea to enjoy a drink that’s both reminiscent of childhood and a celebration of adulthood. Check it out!
