Signature Sips: Gushers Lemonade Cocktails

Remember Gushers? The chewy fruit snacks (candy) that had ooey gooey fruit syrup inside? Maybe the commercial will jog your memory. We loved these back in the good old days, but the whole “flavor so big your head will explode” may have taken it a little too far. Terrifying.

In honor of our cavity-riddled childhoods, we decided to give this throwback snack a boozey twist! Check out how to make Gushers Lemonade Cocktails below:
