How to Make Peep-Infused Vodka

Infusing Vodka with Peeps
Flavored vodkas are growing in popularity, with dozens of flavors popping up where there were once only a few. Instead of basic lemon and lime-infusions, you can now find much more creative flavors like cake, whipped cream and marshmallow. After a pre-Easter Peep-buying spree, I set out to make my own marshmallow-infused spirit using the popular marshmallow chicks.

I filled up a large jar with Peeps, poured in a bottle of relatively inexpensive vodka (don’t get something terrible, but don’t sacrifice something very expensive for this kind of project) and let it steep in the refrigerator for a few days. I decided to use a lot of Peeps – not just two or three – to get in as much Peep flavor as possible. All of the exterior sugar of the marshmallows came right off, and the Peeps partly dissolved, infusing the vodka with a subtle sweetness. So when you taste the vodka, you will get a hint of sugar up front, followed by the flavor of whatever vodka you chose to use. It’s pretty good – and while it doesn’t have a distinct Peep flavor (do Peeps have a distinct flavor?),that doesn’t make the project any less fun.

You can use this vodka in just about any cocktail, and it actually makes a fun centerpiece for an Easter party. Peeps come in a variety of colors, but they all taste just about the same. The classic Yellow peeps are my personal favorite and I chose them to infuse my vodka. Feel free to work with blue, purple or pink Peeps, but I don’t recommend mixing and matching the colors because it will result in a less-than-pleasant-looking finished product as the colors mix. The yellow turn out a vodka with an almost limoncello color to it, which is easy to incorporate into drinks.

Once you’ve made a batch, try making some Peep Vodka Lemon Drops with it to celebrate!

Peep-Infused Vodka
approx 30 Peeps
750 mL vodka

Place all Peeps into a large jar. Fill with vodka. Allow Peeps to marinate in the vodka in the refrigerator for 3-4 days. Vodka can be used as-is, or Peep remnants can be removed by straining vodka through a coffee filter.

  1. What a good idea! I love the flavored vodkas but never thought to try making one myself!

  2. I was on the fence about making Easter a Sunday Funday until I saw this post. Must make this!! Thanks for the recipe!

  3. Best Easter idea everrrrrrr!

  4. This is such a terrible idea. Vodkas mixed with pure sugar not only taste awful, but they also guarantee you’ll have a hangover in the morning.

    Best vodka infusions are made with berries or sour fruits.

  5. That is too funny, Nicole!

  6. Marshmallow-flavored vodka… interesting. I love vodka and I prefer it straight, but my wife can’t stand it. I’m going to make this for her to see if it helps her change her mind about vodka.

  7. WHAT THE PEEP!!! lol This looks interesting!!!! It would make one festive cocktail!!!!

  8. I wouldn’t want to drink this at all. It’s disgusting.

  9. I think this will be my Easter dinner centerpiece. I just have to decide on a color !

  10. Oh, Nicole, I would so love to see you post this on Punk Domestics. We have several other candy infusions on the site, so this is a perfect fit. (If you’re not familiar, PD is like Tastespotting, but for more DIY food projects. Come check us out!)

  11. I just bought the Party Cake Peeps and then saw this link on FB. THIS is my Easter Weekend project! Thanks!!!!!

  12. I have a large quantity of sugar-free peeps. They taste much better than expected. Think that they would work for Peep-infused Vodka?

  13. You had me at “Peep-Infused Vodka.” I don’t like peeps worth a darn, but will I drink sweet marshmallow flavored vodka? You bet I will.

    I’m going to try this now so I have it in time for the weekend!

  14. This is the only acceptable thing to do with Peeps. I don’t like them, but I’m going to try this ‘cuz I do like vodka.
