Peep-a-tini Cocktail

Use two childhood favorites, Jolly Ranchers and Marshmallow Peeps, to create a colorful variety of simple, vibrant adult beverages we call the Peep-a-tini. The jury is still out with the TABLE team when it comes to eating peeps, but this is undeniably a great way to utilize the nostalgic, sugar-coated, polarizing, marshmallow peep.
