Author Notes: I always wind up eating jelly beans for breakfast on Easter. This year, I decided to gussy my jelly bean habit up for Easter brunch by turning them into a fun little cocktail!fiveandspice

Makes: enough for about 6 cocktails

  • 1 cup vodka
  • 2 to 3 tablespoons jelly beans of a single flavor of your choice
  • 1 lemon
  • dry Champagne or other sparkling wine like cava or prosecco
  1. Combine the vodka and jelly beans in a jar and seal. Allow to sit for about 2 hours, shaking occasionally. Take a little taste to make sure jelly bean flavor and sweetness has infused into the vodka, then strain it through a fine strainer.
  2. To make a drink, add 1 ounce of the jelly bean-infused vodka (I call it jelly bean liqueur because it sounds fancy) and a little squeeze of lemon juice to a Champagne flute or coupe and top with chilled Champagne.
