Can there be an Easter without a package of Peeps, much less a Peeptini? Never! In fact, any Easter weekend without Peeps is lacking its sugar rush ceremony, otherwise known as “binge eating an entire package of Peeps” before the annual Easter Egg Hunt. Who are we kidding? No adult actually has enough energy to keep up with the all-star egg hunting toddlers and their energy, with or without a Peep binge. Truthfully, one package of peeps just will not cut it. As adults, we may have been barred from the egg hunt, but we certainly have full access to the cocktail bar. Pour yourself your very own Peeptini and let the kids run wild and cover their easter dresses and slacks in newly minted grass stains.
- 1.5 ounces fluffed marshmallow vodka
- 0.5 ounce vanilla syrup, plus extra for rim
- 1 ounce cream
- 1 Peep
Pour a small amount of vanilla syrup onto one plate and sprinkle sugar onto another plate. Dip rim of glass in syrup and then into sugar to coat. Put vodka, syrup and cream in a cocktail shaker with ice. Shake. Strain into glass. Garnish with a Peep!
