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:
For this ode to cavities, you’ll need:
Step one: muddle
Take a glass and add in diced strawberry and a few gushers. Muddle until lightly pureed.
Step two: boozey lemons
Now, add a shot of vodka to each glass and then top with lemonade.
Step three: garnish
Finally, place some gushers on a skewer, and viola.
Gushers not your thing? No worries. We’ve been throwing it back all month long with our favorite nostalgia-inducing recipes and crafts, including the Dunkaroo Doozy cocktail and this Paint Nite playlist that is sure to bring back some memories.
