With the budget of a 25 year old who has a moderately successful entry level job with a solid paycheck, who can afford to buy all the candy she wants.

And I have no shame in going to see kid's movies on a Friday night, when other people my age are out partying or clubbing or whatever normal people do.

So on Friday night I went to go see Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2...and it was awesome.

I wanted to make a delightful meal with my new friend Kate (that's right...I have two friends now, not including Kevin. And my cat. All together, that's like four friends!), and I decided to concoct a drink for everyone's favorite talking monkey:

Steve.

cloudy008Steve's favorite thing besides mustaches (and pulling mustaches), is of course, Gummy Bears. So why the hell not make a gummy bear martini?

  • Raspberry vodka
  • peach shnapps
  • sweet and sour mix
  • lemon-lime soda

Now, as with any of my drink recipes (and most of my food ones, too), I don't really measure. I just pour sort of equal amounts into a cocktail shaker, taste it, and adjust if needed. But if you're curious, the winner of the 2009 world bartending championship used these amounts:

  • 1/2 oz raspberry vodka
  • 1/2 oz peach shnapps
  • 1 oz sweet and sour mix
  • splash of soda

Unlike other recipes that use colored alcohols, this one produces a mostly clear drink (if you can find clear sweet and sour mix). Even if it comes out a little yellowish, it's still clear enough to see the yummy pile of tasty gummy bears, stuck at the bottom of the glass.

Waiting their turn to get eaten.
