How to make marshmallow vodka
While it sounds tricky, making your own candy-infused vodka is simpler than you might think.
- Add a small handful of mini marshmallows to a large mason jar
- Now pour in 235 ml SKYY vodka
- Seal the jar and leave to infuse overnight, giving it a good shake every time you walk past it
- Strain to remove the marshmallows and pour the vodka back into the jar ready to use in your S’mores vodka Martini (or any other cocktail creations you can dream up)
History of the S’mores Martini
This toasted S’mores Martini is an American love child and it makes sense that it was inspired by the much-loved S’mores campfire tradition. While no one has claimed fame for this bit of cocktail genius, it’s a delicious creation that deserves a place in home bars across the world.
