Cotton Candy Martini

It's Ladies Night Slow Roasters!  Tonight we are bringing a carnival favorite home in an incredible cocktail.  This mouthwatering pink cotton candy martini is the perfect summer drink.

The scent of the cotton candy stand at the fair can just about lift you up and carry you across the fairgrounds and deliver you to the heavenly cloud of spun sugar in pink and blue.  The mere sight of cotton candy gives me butterflies.

Chad has taken a summer carnival treat; Cotton Candy, and transformed it into a martini like you have never tasted before. I have never been a big cotton candy lover,  I would eat a handful or two.  Well after the fantastic flavors that Chad came up with...  I am a Cotton Candy convert!
