Referred to in the US as the Cotton Candy martini, this concoction could also be dubbed the Diabetini. It can be very sweet and isn’t my sort of drink, but I thought I would experiment with it nonetheless.
Mix together some chilled vodka, cranberry juice and freshly squeezed lemon juice. A full lemon will yield enough for two of these martinis, while I made the vodka to cranberry ratio around 2:3 (although you can adjust this to taste).
Line the rim of the glass with candyfloss, but be careful not to have it lying too deep into the glass. If it gets wet it will start to dissolve and could pull the whole garnish into the drink.
Place some more candyfloss into the glass.
Pour the vodka cranberry over the candyfloss in the glass and watch it dissolve.
Remember to brush your teeth thoroughly and visit your dentist on a regular basis.
