Green Apple Jolly Rancher Drink

Snappy sweet tart Green Apple Jolly Rancher Drink perfectly reflects the flavors in this most famous of all candies. We LOVE jolly rancher candies.

Read the Jolly rancher story of this most popular candy brand. It was founded in Colorado in 1949. And the rest is as they say…history.

Of course we want to make an adult beverage that reflects the flavors of Jolly Ranchers. What’s not to like? Green apple is the perfect Fall flavor.

…What else do you have to do with your kids leftover Halloween candy? It’s a virtuous thing to trade the kids something healthy for their Jolly Ranchers. Right?

Give those yummers a higher purpose. Fall parties for grown ups should have a set of Green apple Jolly Rancher drinks to liven things up.

I created this green apple jolly rancher drink with the sweet tart profile in mind. I REALLY wanted to make it taste just like a green apple jolly rancher. My hubby and I think this recipe does that perfectly.

And the color is perfect. You won’t have to make homemade Jolly rancher vodka in this green apple drink. Most of what you need is already in your cupboard. And the rest of the ingredients are easy to find or order on Amazon.

We leave the candy out of the glass. It’s just too sweet when you put the candy in the bottom of the glass in my opinion. And you know I’m all about sweet drinks.

We served ours in a coop glass. Any 6 oz. glass stemmed or stemless will work fine for this candy flavored cocktail. Here is the one we used.

For shots-you can find any number of cute shot glasses with the jolly rancher them on Etsy.

This recipe will make ALMOST 4 short 1 1/2 shots. Add another 1/2 oz of green apple vodka to even up the shots. or short the glasses a tiny bit.


  • We used a stainless cocktail pick and a jolly rancher candy. Get the pick wet and adhese it to the candy.
  • Try to balance the pick onto the center of the candy for the best look.
  • Just hold the candy onto the wet pick until the connection hardens. This will take 10 to 20 seconds.
  • Set the pick into your glass keeping the candy out of the drink.
  • The candy can be eaten on the side.

You can slice green apple wheels and dip them in lemon juice to keep them from browing. Serve on the glass side with or without the candy pick.
