There is nothing better than tipping back an ice-cold drink on a hot, humid day. While water should be your go-to drink to keep dehydration at a low, sometimes it’s necessary to shake things up a bit—literally!
Non-Alcoholic Cotton Candy Martini (serves 1)
This candy-inspired drink has a fruity taste without being too sweet. Cotton candy makes for a fun garnish and often can be found at Walmart. Kids — and grownups too — will love watching the fluffy addition to their beverage dissolve like magic!
2½ ounces raspberry-flavored soda or pop
1/2-ounce raspberry-flavored syrup (the kind you find in a coffee bar; Torani and DaVinci are two well-known brands)
A splash of grenadine
Cotton candy or Cotton Candy Jelly Bellies for garnish
Chill your glass as usual but combine the liquid ingredients in a pitcher with some ice and stir instead of shake, then pour into your martini glass and garnish.
