Easter is coming up, people! What about an Easter inspired drink? “What is it then?” Peeps vodka, mate! “I sure want to try that!” Your wish and my wish is mutual, little one. “What are we waiting for? We shouldn't waste time! Let’s make this peeps vodka!” Uh-uh, not yet. *winks* Before we take a shot… ok, maybe three… or four… *silence* alright, 50 shots, let us take some basic peeps vodka information first. I, for one, do not have that sufficient knowledge about peeps and vodka. But hey, we are here to learn… and to get tipsy later! *winks* Ok, let’s be useful and learn about peeps and vodka, shall we?
Well, vodkas first. Vodka is a “distilled beverage composed primarily of water and ethanol, sometimes with traces of impurities and flavorings.” Vodka is traditionally made by the distillation of fermented cereal grains or potatoes. Some modern brands use other materials, such as fruits or sugar. Vodkas have a minimum alcohol content of 40%. They are usually drunk without any water, ice, or another mixer. In the vodka belt countries of Eastern Europe, vodkas are sometimes served chilled. According to Wikipedia, they are frequently used in cocktails and concocted drinks, such as the vodka martini, vodka tonic, Screwdriver, Greyhound, Black or White Russian, and Bloody Mary.
Let's go to peeps! Peeps are “marshmallow candies, sold in the United States and Canada that are shaped into chicks, bunnies, and other animals.” Well, these peeps sound and look cute! *winks* Peeps are traditionally used during Easter occasions. *silence* Now we know why this peeps vodka is Easter inspired. *smiles* Anyway, Peeps are also consumed during the Halloween, Christmas and Valentine's Day. It would seem peeps are enjoyed and available all-year round. Mini peeps have been available since 2014. Peeps are made of sugar, corn syrup, gelatin, and various food dyes. Sam Born is the one who started the production of Peeps. He is the founder of the manufacturing company ‘Just Born’.
