This isn’t quite up with Heston Blumenthal but I still think it is fun to make.

Check out the video 🙂

So pretty, and the wonderful thing about this cocktail is you could easily adapt it, say if you were having a hen party or bridal shower. You could switch up the colour of the fairy floss (and even use a different base) and totally change the colour.

This isn’t as sweet as you would think. Initially I tried this with a white grape juice. I wanted the cocktail to change colour as it hit the coloured floss. It sort of worked! But it was very sweet. I liked it, but I wasn’t sure you could drink many of them ( 😳 )

So I switched out for cranberry juice and a squeeze of lemon. Perfect!

And as for the name. Who knew that this spun sugar was called so many things!! Growing up in the UK we knew it as candy floss, here in Australia it is known as fairy floss. But my cousins who lives in the states calls it cotton candy. So whatever you call your spun sugar enjoy the theatre of your ______ martini (Insert word as required) 😉

    Hi Claire! You make the most colorful martinis! Gary would be appalled by this as he is a purist when it comes to martinis. Me, on the other, not! I haven’t had cotton candy since I was a kid and what a playful drink! After all, shouldn’t drinks be playful?

      I have tried a traditional martini and it was just a little strong and astringent for me. If I am drinking a cocktail and want them to be fruity and easy to drink!!! 😉

      I was given a fairy floss (as they call it here) machine for Christmas by our neighbours. It is so much fun to see the floss form!!!
