Green Apple Jolly Rancher Cocktail

I remember when I was in my early twenties, completely oblivious to what a real, grown up drink tasted like and my best friend and I would drink some Strawberry Boone’s Farm wine (do they still make that stuff?) and in the bottom of our glass, we would drop a strawberry Jolly Rancher. We loved it! Neither of us enjoyed the taste of “real” wine at that point in our lives and the jolly rancher was just for fun and a little added taste.

Well, I’m grown up now and I still like to put Jolly Ranchers in my drinks! Not even kidding!

If you love a good Jolly Rancher drink like I do, check out this tasty recipe for a Green Apple Jolly Rancher Cocktail. It’s delightfully fruit, with a teeny tiny sour twist. I love it!

Besides, I really needed a reason to use my sweet new cocktail shaker that I bought to keep around, but as it turns out, I rarely enjoy drinks that need to be shaken so it has just sat lonely in the cabinet for way too long now.
