When I picture the perfect Friday, it always includes some sunshine, a laundry room that can do without calling my name for 48 hours, coming home to dinner on the table and of course, a colourful cocktail, preferably something pink and served on a patio! Since one can never have it all, I did without the patio tonight (it's been warming up here in Toronto but let's not get crazy, we're still in the single digits for the rest of the weekend) but the cocktail was as pink as can be!
Even for someone like myself who doesn't usually prefer my beverages on the sweet side, the Cotton Candy-tini hit the spot since the vodka is only lightly infused with the taste of that yummy confection that reminds me of the funfairs and circuses I used to love as a kid!
2 oz. Cotton Candy flavored vodka (I use Pinnacle)
1 oz. pineapple juice
Combine the vodka, pineapple juice and a splash of grenadine in a cocktail shaker full of ice. Shake well and strain into a chilled martini glass.
