This fizzy Pink Starburst Cocktail has an irresistible, fruity taste and pretty pink color that makes it fun to serve at a party. Strawberry-kiwi, orange, and lemon-lime mingle together to provide a base for a burst of candy-infused alcohol. 

If you love this easy drink, mix up some of our other grown-up beverages, such as our Screwdriver Cocktail, Wine Slushies, White Claw Slushie and Mango Mojito, for your next gathering. What about our Bailey’s and Coffee Ice Cubes for another delicious drink? Our Jello Shots are so much fun for a party!

PINK STARBURST COCKTAIL INGREDIENTS

pink starburst cocktail raw ingredients that are labeled

You will need:

  • 8 ounces vodka or clear rum
  • 8 pink Starburst candy, plus more for garnish
  • 8 ounces orange juice
  • 8 ounces strawberry-kiwi juice or punch
  • 8 to 12 ounces of lemon-lime soda
  • Red food coloring, optional

SUBSTITUTIONS AND ADDITIONS

Orange Juice: You can skip the orange juice, but it adds a little more flavor to the drink.

Starburst Candy: The pink Starburst flavor does come through quite well, so if you prefer strawberry flavor over watermelon or vice versa, dissolve just the preferred flavor of Starburst in the alcohol.

HOW TO MAKE THIS PINK STARBURST COCKTAIL RECIPE

STEP ONE: Place 8 pink Starburst candies into a jar or container with a lid. Pour 8 ounces of vodka or rum over the Starburst and cover the container with an airtight lid. Allow the candies to dissolve in the alcohol for about 24 hours. Stir or swirl occasionally to help combine the mixture.

STEP TWO: When you are ready to make the cocktails, fill the glasses with ice.

PRO TIP: You could add frozen orange juice ice cubes in place of the plain ones to ensure the drink doesn’t get too watered down as they melt.

STEP THREE: Add 2 ounces of candy alcohol to each glass.

STEP FOUR: Pour 2 ounces of orange juice and 2 ounces of strawberry-kiwi juice into the glass.

PRO TIP: We tried this with other types of pink juice, and the Strawberry Kiwi was the favorite; it allowed the flavor of the Starburst candy to come through more so than with other juices.

STEP FIVE: Top with lemon-lime soda.

STEP FIVE (optional): For a more vibrant pink color, add just a drop of red food coloring and stir into the drink.

HOW TO SERVE

Serve with a side of pink Starburst candies and a striped straw for sipping.

Pro Tip: Add a few starburst candies to a skewer and lay across the top of the glass for a pretty presentation.

This drink would be a hit at any gathering. Serve it alongside some fabulous munchies like our pretzel bites with cheese dip, blooming quesadilla ring, crab rangoon or jalapeño popper dip. Add some cute chocolate turtles and caramel apple dip and you’re all set.

STORAGE

IN THE FRIDGE: Candied alcohol will keep in the refrigerator for up to 5 days. Store in a jar and give it a good stir once you are ready to use it.
