This Marshmallow Vodka is everything you need to add that fluffy, marshmallow flavor to all your cocktails. From s’mores to hot cocoa, you’ll love mixing drinks with this homemade liqueur recipe!
We’re finally getting out of winter weather here, and I’m SO very ready for summer.
The spring pollen bothers me, and I could really just skip over springtime. Can we just fast forward already?
I’m ready for cold cocktails on the front porch after work. I’m ready for my herb garden. I’m ready for Saturdays at the pool. I’m ready for campfires and s’mores with friends.
Just get here already, summer!
Nothing says summer to me like s’mores, so I have been experimenting with s’mores flavors at home while I wait for summertime.
I’ve seen marshmallow vodka at the liquor store before, but since I’ve tried other candy infusions like Peppermint Vodka and Candy Corn Vodka, I figured marshmallows would infuse into liquor just as well.
And I was right.
This 24-hour infusion is SO easy. Just plop some fluffy marshmallows into a mason jar, cover with vodka and let it sit overnight.
BOOM. Marshmallow vodka.
What size marshmallows should you use for marshmallow vodka?
I used regular size in these photos, but I tested both.
What I found was that you can use mini or regular-size marshmallows, but I found the miniature ones worked better because of their smaller size. The smaller surface area helps them to dissolve into the vodka faster.
If you only have regular size on hand, what I would do is just use a knife or kitchen shears to trim them down. Or don’t bother, but don’t be surprised if your vodka needs a little more time like mine did!
You can even use homemade marshmallows if you wish, but my philosophy is… If you’re going to go to all that effort to make amazing, fluffy homemade marshmallows, why not just eat them?!
Lastly, you can even try it with colorful Easter Peeps! Check out my recipe for Peeps vodka.
Can you make toasted marshmallow vodka?
Absolutely! I’ve tried it!
Just toast the marshmallows in the broiler or with a butane blowtorch. Then follow this marshmallow vodka recipe!
Your result will be more brown than white, and you’ll definitely want to strain off the burnt bits, but the result is so tasty.
What are some marshmallow vodka cocktails you can make?
Marshmallow vodka would go deliciously in a chocolate martini or a s’mores white russian for a summery twist.
But the best part of this marshmallow vodka is it’s not limited to s’mores drinks or summertime.
It goes great in hot chocolate too! Try it in this Spiked Nutella Hot Cocoa.
- 1/3 cup mini marshmallows (see note)
- 1 cup vodka
- Fill a mason jar halfway with marshmallows, around 1/3 cup. Top with vodka.
- Cover with lid and let sit for 24 hours.
- If small bits of marshmallow remain, strain the vodka into a bowl to separate them. Then decant the vodka back into the jar. Cover and store.
Regular sized marshmallows will also work, but the smaller size will infuse and dissolve better into the vodka. If you only have the larger ones, use kitchen scissors or a knife to cut them into smaller sizes.
