#DOTW: Jolly Rancher

After bartending for years, I know which cocktails are tops amongst favorites, and when it comes to fruity drinks, the Jolly Rancher is forever crowning the list. There is no one recipe, just like there is no one Jolly Rancher flavor, but this has always been my favorite. It’s the apple flavored kind, an even though it should probably be green, it tastes just like and Apple Jolly Rancher, maybe a little bit less sweet. You can make shots out of the same ingredients, but I personally prefer a good old cocktail. With the warm weather being in full swing, and the Memorial Day weekend coming up, this is an ideal way to celebrate the sunshine in the weekends coming up. I know I’ll have a few!

What you’ll need:

  • 1 1/2 oz Smirnoff Apple Vodka
  • 1 1/2 oz Peach Schnapps
  • 3 oz Cranberry Juice
  • lemon, orange, peach or apple wedges

Easy breezy: Add All ingredients over ice in a highball glass. Add your preferred garnish, and enjoy!
