Who is stoked to see the new Aladdin movie? You need this Genie Juice cocktail in hand while you do!
While I do have some hesitations regarding how race and class are portrayed in the remake (I haven’t seen it yet, so I don’t know), it’s really fun that they keep remaking things near and dear to my childhood. So, how do you adult-up the release of a remake?
With a custom, film-based cocktail of course! This one is super-extra fun, because it includes homemade cotton candy. Before you freak out at the idea, cotton candy machines run less than thirty dollars (right?! I got really excited too!). You’ll be the talk of the town, whether or not you have kids, when you make this delicious homemade blue lemon cotton candy to top off your drinks. Adding a puff of cotton candy to a cocktail is a very original, fun way to spice up a drink and give it that wow factor, plus it’s crazy easy.
Naturally, you can buy some cotton candy to use, too, if you’d prefer.
We’re all about finding fun ingredients to use in cocktails, like the dry ice that makes this Cave of Wonder Cocktail (also an Aladdin themed cocktail!) dazzle.
Genie Juice Cocktail Recipe
- 3oz Island Blue Pucker
- 1 Can Sprite or Lemon Lime Soda
- Blue Cotton Candy (or use recipe below for homemade!)
Homemade Blue Lemon Cotton Candy:
Mix all ingredients together with a fork, using the flat edge to crush any lumps until the sugar is mixed all the way through. Make the candy using your cotton candy machine’s instructions!
- Add 2oz of Island Blue Pucker to two glasses, and top off with cold Sprite.
- Place a large piece of lemon cotton candy on top, and enjoy!
This can also be made kid-friendly by replacing the Island Blue Pucker with non-alcoholic Blue Curacao!
