I gave it 4 points because:
- it was super easy to make, no straining necessary!
- the bubblegum flavor was very prominent
- it mixes well with just a bit of sprite
It lost a point because while the flavor came through really nicely and it makes a great novelty drink, it turns out that bubblegum is just not something I want to drink on a regular basis. Oh, and it totally smells like mouthwash. Still, I would say that if you are wanting to try out some candy boozes, this one is worth a try.
We had it in a "BubbleGum Martini" recipe I saw on several blogs. To be honest, that martini is much better made with plain old vanilla vodka. When I mixed the bubblegum vodka with the sprite alone it was pretty darn good though.
|I started with about 20 pieces of gum.|
|Unwrap gum and cut into smaller pieces.|
|Pour in just enough vodka to cover the gum.|
|Let it soak for 1 day or until you feel like its ready.|
|Remove soaked gum (I tried chewing some to see if it had soaked in |
any of the vodka but it had no taste whatsoever.)
|Chill and serve.|
