The best thing about being an adult: acting like a kid, while still enjoying the perks of being an adult.
Want to put a twist on some of your favorite adult beverages? Try this.
Go buy a pack of Red or Black Vines (or Twizzlers, if that’s your thing) and bite off the ends. Insert into any of these tasty drinks and giggle over the fact that some things are still fun, no matter how old you are.
1. Vodka Sprite
: My personal favorite because it’s super sweet with red licorice.
2. Amaretto Sour
: If you like sour, get some sour licorice, cherry flavor. It’s sour in a really good way.
3. Rum and Coke
: For you folks that enjoy black licorice, this is the drink for just that. The stronger the rum, the better the black licorice tastes with it.
4. Mike’s Hard Lemonade
: Apple or Strawberry licorice straws. Trust and believe.
5. Baileys on the rocks
JK, that’d be weird. Beer
: This time, I’m not kidding. Red or black licorice, depending on if your beer is pale or dark, actually doesn’t taste half bad. And if you’re on a budget, it’s the cheapest.
Not sure about the wine.... I know these are pretty simple drinks, but keeping it simple and sweet (or sour), is always a good way to start. But hey, if you want to get fancy, get thee to a candy store and get creative.
And remember: pinky up.
