  • 4 ounces vodka per jolly rancher color
  • 4 to 6 Jolly Rancher candies plus lots more for garnish
  • 8 to 12 ounces lemon-lime soda
  • Ice cubes


  • Place 4 to 6 same-color Jolly Rancher candies into a jar or container with a lid. Pour 4 ounces of vodka over the Jolly Ranchers and cover the container with an airtight lid. Allow candies to dissolve in the alcohol for about 24 hours. Stir or swirl occasionally to help combine the mixture.
  • When ready to make the cocktails, fill glasses with ice.
  • Add two ounces of candy alcohol to each glass.
  • Fill the glass the rest of the way with lemon-lime soda.
  • Top with Jolly Rancher candies and serve.


PRO TIP: This recipe makes a smaller batch of drinks but can easily be doubled to serve more people.
PRO TIP: If you want to offer multiple flavors of this drink, make more than one jar of candied vodka using different candy flavors, repeating the step above for each individual flavor.
PRO TIP: You can combine different colors of candied vodka, but they will blend together pretty quickly.
PRO TIP: The candies will sink in the drink, so fill the glass with ice and place candies for the garnish on top. Candies will dissolve as they sit in the drink - you can add more lemon-lime soda or vodka or Jolly Rancher vodka to the glass.
