KINKY Blow Pop Martini*

I said it last week and I will say it again – I love Valentine’s Day food stuff. I love all the pink, red and white things that come out this time of year. I actually tell Jorge every year that I can’t wait to have kids so I can steal their Valentine’s Day candy. Red heart suckers get me EVERY time.

This year some of my girlfriends and I wanted to have a little pre-valentine’s day celebration. It wasn’t so much about v-day…more about getting together and eating everything all the red & pink things we could find. I decided I would bring a cocktail and started searching for Valentine inspired martinis.

I wasn’t finding much that I liked, so I started looking through KINKY® Liqueur’s Pinterest and look what I found — a KINKY Blow Pop Martini! It already had the perfect colors for V-day, so I just swapped out the blow pop for a Valentine’s Day heart sucker.

I know I personally hate buying a lot of alcohols for just a few martinis. You always wind up with large unused strange alcohols. However, for this martini I found mini bottles of bubble gum vodka. Yay for saving money!

You can also find mini bottles of KINKY Liqueur, however I always buy the big bottle at Target (Yes — It’s sold at Target!!) because I will actually use it in other ways. My favorite quick happy hour drink is KINKY Liqueur with sprite. Add a squeeze of orange (to compliment the mango, blood orange and passion fruit flavors that are in KINKY Liqueur) and you have yourself a quick party in a glass. ;-)

KINKY Blow Pop Martini

Yield: 1 Martini

Ingredients:

1.5 ounces KINKY Liqueur
1 ounce bubble gum flavored vodka
1 ounce pink lemonade
splash of sprite
optional:
colored sugar for rim
water or corn syrup for rim
1 sucker/blow pop

Directions:

To rim glass: Place red sugar sprinkles on a shallow plate that is a little larger than the mouth of your martini glass. Using a finger, lightly smear corn syrup (or water) on the edge of your glass. Dip glass into sprinkles to coat the edges.

Add about 1 cup of ice, KINKY Liqueur, bubble gum flavored vodka, pink lemonade and sprite to a cocktail shaker.

Place the lid on tightly and shake it good. Strain martini into a chilled martini glass. Garnish with a sucker/blow pop and serve immediately.

I could not find the original source or actual recipe, but this recipe as inspired by a pin on pinterest.

    Holy crap am I a sucker for the pink and red and glittery stuff of Valentine’s Day! I cannot go near the dollar section at Target or near Target in general for that matter this time of year! This cocktail looks so perfect!

    If you can’t find the little bottles of bubble gum vodka, make your own. take regular vodka, get some hubba bubba and let the gum sit in the vodka. Shake it every so often and then drain after a day or 2. Bubble gum vodka!

    “A party in a glass”, haha. I love how colorful these are and the heart-shaped sucker was such a good idea!

    Well ain’t this just the sassiest little cocktail! As soon as this little girl is born I’m rushing down to Spec’s to find me some bubble gum vodka, and this is getting made! Mama will need a drink… I’m sure.
