Double Bubble Cocktail

This is positively weird, even silly,  but I couldn’t resist sharing this cocktail.

                                               Got Gum?  

    Not just any gum, we’re talkin’ good ol’ Double Bubble here! 

                   

Oh stop!  Don’t go “eeewwww” and stick up your nose, where is your sense of adventure?  Give it a try…okay?

 

Good!

 

 

 

You will need…

  • 16 pieces bubblegum, preferably Double Bubble, cut in half
  • 2 cups (16 ounces) vodka
  • 1 tablespoon (1/2 ounce) freshly squeezed lemon juice (from ½ lemon)
  • 1 tablespoon (1/2 ounce) freshly squeezed lime juice (from ½ lime)
  • 1 tablespoon (1/2 ounce) simple syrup
  • 1/2 egg white* or 1 tablespoon pasteurized liquid egg whites (optional)
  • 1 cup ice

*The egg white in this recipe is not cooked. If there is a problem with salmonella in your area omit the egg white or use pasteurized egg whites.

 


Next….

In large airtight container, combine bubblegum and vodka. Seal and allow to infuse, stirring every 6 hours, for 24 hours. Pour vodka through fine mesh strainer, discarding bubble gum.

In cocktail shaker, stir together 2 ounces bubblegum-infused vodka, lemon juice, lime juice, simple syrup, and egg white if using. Add ice and shake vigorously for 20 seconds. Strain into a chilled coupe (champagne) glass.

                                                So pretty in pink….and tasty, too!

    Now that is one unusual drink! I’ve always wondered about trying bubblegum ice cream…a bubblegum cocktail would just be the natural next step. I have to admit; it is really pretty! I’d definitely love to try it!

  3. Who would have thought that that combination would make bubble gum flavor??? Sounds really good 🙂 Ok, GFC better be MY friend this time. Now that I have more time to stalk blogs, I plan on starting with yours. Hope you have been well, Patty!!

  4. That sounds really good…and sort of nostalgic (I haven’t had pink bubble gum since I was a kid!)

    Thanks so much for sharing! I also love that it’s PINK!!

  6. This sounds very good!! And I happen to still like that bubble gum…for the first 5 minutes and then it loses it’s flavor.

    I feel a little dumb, but what’s simple syrup?

    • Patty says:

      It’s just sugar and water, Jen.

      Combine 1 part water and 1 part sugar in a saucepan. Heat and stir until it comes to a boil. Boil for two minutes. Take off the heat and store in a plastic or glass container at room temperature.

      This mixture will last about 2 months. If you want to extend that period, you can add 2 ozs of Vodka per pint of simple syrup to the recipe.
