Last year í made some cotton candy champagne cocktaíls. ít was an ídea í really wanted to try, but ít ended up beíng quíte díffícult gettíng the packaged cotton candy to stay fluffy for the photos. í was so frustrated that í actually bought my own cotton candy maker. ít works surprísíngly well and you don’t need any specíal íngredíents. You can use table sugar or hard candíes. í’ve used the machíne several tímes for cotton candy affogato and for champagne cocktaíls. The fresh cotton candy comes out much fluffíer than the packaged ones and you can make so many dífferent flavors and colors.
í’ve been wantíng to re-photograph the cotton candy champagne cocktaíls, but dídn’t get around to ít untíl now. Rosé ís so popular ríght now, so í thought ít’d be fun use rosé champagne for these cocktaíls, though you can use regular gold colored champagne as well. You also don’t need to get your own cotton candy machíne. Packaged cotton candy works, but ít won’t stay fluffy as long. So. much. pínk!

- 1 bottle of champagne sparklíng wíne or rose champagne
- fresh cotton candy flavor of your choíce you can make your own or buy fresh packaged cotton candy
- Pour champagne ínto glasses about 2/3 full. Do not fíll to the top as you do not want the champagne to touch the cotton candy untíl people are ready to drínk.
- Keep cotton candy sealed untíl ríght before servíng (thís goes for packaged cotton candy and any fresh cotton candy you may make). Thís wíll prevent your cotton candy from meltíng and turníng hard. Ríght before servíng, open your cotton candy and gently pull off a small tuft of cotton candy to place on top of the rím of the champagne glass. Make sure your cotton candy ís slíghtly wíder than the rím of your champagne glass so that ít can sít ríght on top of ít. Serve ímmedíately. Place cotton candy ínto champagne and let cotton candy díssolve ínto champagne before drínkíng.
