Vodka • Sweet
Strawberry Gushers Sour

Setting aside the terrifying commercials in which children's heads turned into fruit, Gushers were the ultimate prize on the ‘90s lunch room trading floor. With their bright colors, intense flavors and explosive nature, the hexagonal, goo-filled confections were the snack of choice among discerning fruit candy lovers. Inspired by these iconic candies from our childhoods, we adapted the original strawberry flavor into a sophisticated red sour cocktail, served in a coupe and garnished with a skewer of Gushers—a la Martini olives. We may be all grown up, but we still like a sweet candy treat every now and then.
