We all miss the simpler times, when our biggest concern was who we were going to share our candy stash with and play with on the playground. As the end of the semester creeps closer, and graduation is looming over some why not throw it back to some of our favorite times. With these boozy alternatives to our favorite sweets why not try some of these candy-inspired cocktails, because what’s better than alcohol and acting childish.
The Tootsie Roll is a classic chocolate chew that brings back memories of getting a gold star in second grade. I’m sure every grade school teacher had a jar of these on her desk.
This Skittles-soaked Vodka will taste like that boozy rainbow you’ve always wanted.
This colorful cocktail will taste like bubblegum and remind you of the simpler times.
Sour and lemon-y this martini will get you buzzed and quite possibly turn you into a Lemonhead.
First it’s sour, then it’s sweet…but boozy all the time.
The sangria’s fruity flavor will be enhanced by the sugary bear-shaped gummies. Not to mention the added bonus of eating the soaked Gummy Bears when you’re done.
Our favorite chocolate and peanut butter pair is upgraded for the adults with chocolate liqueur and peanut rum.
Muddled with this chalk-y candy, this mojito will remind you of the many time you divided your Smarties roll with your BFF.
These sticks are like powdered crack for children, and this martini inspired by the colorful sugar will give you a similar effect as that childhood sugar rush.

Although it might not satisfy your hunger like the ads say, it will definitely satisfy your chocolate-y craving.
