Bubble Gum Martini

I saw this recipe on my friend's blog and wanted to try it. I don't drink very often but I do love a good martini every once in awhile. My favorite ones usually have chocolate in them, like the Yin Yang Martini I had at The Melting Pot a couple months ago. Mmmmm!

I love bubble gum and lemonade too. Put those two things together and you have a delicious drink! This was so good! Thanks K for sharing this recipe with me!!!

To Make the Bubble Gum Vodka:

You have two options with this, you can either let the gum steep for at least 24 hours, or you can cut the pieces in half and it would only need to sit for 12 hours. The longer you can let it sit the better so the vodka really soaks up all that bubble gum flavor. For this recipe I used Double Bubble.

8 oz vodka
8 pieces bubble gum (do not use sugar-free)

Combine the vodka and gum in a container with a lid and allow to sit for 12 – 24 hours.

To Make the Bubble Gum Martini:

1 oz bubble gum vodka
2 oz pink lemonade

Run a lemon slice over the rim of martini glass and then dip in sugar. In a martini shaker, combine the vodka and lemonade over ice and shake. Pour into martini glass and enjoy.
