This marshmallow peep Easter martini recipe is a sweet treat for Easter brunch (and a great way to use up extra Easter candy). After all, Easter is one of those holidays where you can have your candy and drink it too. Sugary sweet and full of joy, you’ll delight guests of all ages with this fabulous Easter cocktail favorite.

Think of this as dessert in a glass. For this sweet martini, you will need these ingredients: marshmallow vodka, vanilla simple syrup, cream, ice and, of course, a bag of Easter peeps.

Prefer to make this into a kid-friendly drink? Or something to serve as a nonalcoholic or mocktail drink option? Swap out the marshmallow vodka with whole milk in the recipe.

One tip: Making this cocktail rimming sugar is easy. But getting the cocktail sugar rimmer to stick to the rim just right can be a little challenging, because of the tiny Easter egg candy sprinkles. In order to get them to stick firmly to the glass, you will need to brush honey or corn syrup onto the rim of your glasses.

Yields1 Serving
 3 oz Marshmallow flavored vodka
 2 oz heavy cream
 1 oz vanilla flavored simple syrup
 Honey or corn syrup
 Peeps bunny marshmallow candies
 Pastel green sanding sugar (we like this one from Hobbyland, that is naturally colored)
 Dark green sanding sugar (we like this one from Hobbyland, that is naturally colored)
 Ice
FIRST, GARNISH YOUR GLASSES
1

Pour 1 teaspoon of pastel green sugar, 1/2 teaspoon of dark green sanding sugar and 1 teaspoon of the marbled Easter egg candy confetti sprinkles into a shallow bowl, and mix together. Brush honey or corn syrup onto the rim of your glass. Turn your glass upside down, at a 45-degree angle, and dip glass rim into the sugar-candy mix. Gently move the glass around the sugar, rotating the glass as you go.

Lift glass out of sugar. Tap off excess. Turn glass right-side up and repeat process. If there are empty spots, it means there was not enough moisture on the rim. To fix, simply dab glass rim with syrup and dip again in sugar mix.

If serving in shot glasses: Double up the amount of sugar and candies, and follow the same steps.

NEXT, MAKE YOUR COCKTAIL

Pour the vodka, simple syrup and cream into a cocktail shaker filled with ice. Cover the shaker and shake well, until shaker is chilled. Strain into the glasses. Take one marshmallow Peep and make a 3/4 inch cut into the bottom of the marshmallow. Slide marshmallow onto the glass rim and serve.
