You haven’t really lived until you try this cotton candy mixture combined with a shot of liquor for a tasty kick! Introducing spiked cotton candy: A 21-and-over sugar floss creation that’s going to be your new go-to party treat. We all enjoyed the sticky satisfaction of cotton candy as kids, and now you can continue your love of the sugary confection with an adult-friendly twist.

This two-ingredient recipe is made with sugar floss, the main ingredient in cotton candy, and of course the what-you’re-really-here-for part, your choice of alcohol. We mixed our sugar floss with vodka, but you can also make this candy recipe with gin, rum, or your favorite tequila. Spiked cotton candy is taking sweet and sour to a whole new level, and we’re already craving more.

Check out the video below for the recipe — you’ll thank us later!

Spiked Cotton Candy


Floss sugar
Vodka, or alcohol of choice
Baking sheet
Wax paper
Cotton candy maker
Cotton candy cones or decorative straws


Add vodka to floss sugar a little at a time. Make the mixture into a sugar scrub texture.
Line baking sheet with wax paper.
Lay out the mixture for 24 hours on pan to dry.
Once completely dry you can add sugar into cotton candy maker.
Use cotton candy maker as directed.
Wait for cotton candy maker to heat up for 10 minutes until adding spiked sugar. Once the sugar is heated up, webs should start to form allowing you to spin onto the straw.
Add mixture to cocktails or eat alone. Cheers!
