When you need a fun, festive, flavorful family friendly drink, give this Cotton Candy Cooler a try.
Just two ingredients and a few seconds is all you need for a sweet bubbly mocktail.
Am I the only parent that gets suckered into buying a big bag of cotton candy (aka candy floss or fairy floss) at the fair, amusement park, football game, etc. and the kid eats half of it and then it sits around the house melting or turning rock hard?
Or maybe you need an easy but fun mocktail to serve for adults and kids alike?
This recipe is for you!
Chill a bottle of seltzer (or club soda or sparkling water) and the cotton candy and you have all you need to turn that in to a fun drink.
Where to get cotton candy?
Assuming you haven't been to the amusement park and don't have leftovers, you can buy tubs of cotton candy at stores like Party City, Target and Walmart or online at Amazon.
I often find it at my grocery store during Easter and Christmas seasons.
What liquid to use for Cotton Candy Cooler?
You want an unsweetened sparkling mixer like seltzer, sparkling water, club soda or even tonic water.
I love it with a nice lime flavored sparkling water for a hint of citrus to balance the sweet cotton candy.
The flavor of your cotton candy may also influence your choice.
- unsweetened seltzer, club soda, sparkling water (chilled)
- cotton candy (any flavor or color)
- Put some cotton candy in a tall glass, pour chilled seltzer over it. Add more cotton candy if desired for taste. Serve immediately.
