Candy is awesome. You know it, I know it – Candy rocks! That’s why this week’s Thirsty Thursday addition is inspired by …drum roll please… candy! We received the Bulleit 10 Years Old for inspiration and this drink comes together perfectly. We could have went the traditional route with the whiskey – you know, mix it with coke or some other manly combination. I’m just so over whiskey being so masculine I thought it would be fun to girly it up a bit.
I’m a fan of sweet drinks and I realize not everyone is so don’t worry not everything will be sweet, fruity, or girly; but this is 🙂
This drink is fairly simple to put together. There’s no cream based anything so curdling isn’t going to be an issue. We start by adding 1 shot of Bulleit Whiskey then 1/2 shot each of Peach Schnapps and Melon Liqueur. Next a shot of Grenadine and fill with orange or pineapple juice – it’s really a personal preference and I use a little of each.
The final results are sweet with a slight tartness. The alcohol taste is undetectable so be sure to drink responsibly! Before you get started, here is a little more about Bulleit – head to your local ABC store and ask for it by name 🙂
