Peeps are a classic Easter candy, and what better way to enjoy them as an adult than in a unique cocktail? This easy cocktail is inspired by fluffy marshmallow peeps, which I turned into a delicious, easy Easter brunch cocktail. 

The combination of marshmallow vodka and liqueur gives this drink a sweet and creamy flavor that will satisfy any sweet tooth. Plus, the bright colors of the Peeps make for an adorable dessert cocktail that will be a hit at any Easter celebration.

Let’s talk about the star ingredient of this cocktail: marshmallow Peeps. These iconic Easter candies are not only adorable, but they also add a delicious marshmallow flavor to the Peeptini. You can easily find them at any grocery store during spring.

Ingredient Notes and Shopping List

Marshmallow vodka – This has smooth vanilla and caramel flavors. You can also use whipped vodka or vanilla vodka if that’s easier to find.

Marshmallow liqueur – I used Borgata Marshmallow Liqueur, and it was great. You can also use a vanilla liqueur.

Heavy cream – Adds a creamy texture to the drink. You can also use half and half or milk if you prefer. 

Sanding sugar – This is fine sugar that you’ll use to make a sugar rim on the glass. Peeps are covered in sugar, so it’s only fitting that the glass is, too. 

Peeps marshmallows – The star of the cocktail, this fun garnish is crucial to finishing the drink. You can use any color or shape, but I love the traditional yellow chicks.

Recipe Tips and Variations 

  • Make sure you shake this cocktail with ice for at least 20 seconds. This will ensure that it is chilled and perfectly mixed. 
  • For an extra festive touch, you can use different colored sanding sugars on the rim of the glass to match the colors of your peeps.
  • If you don’t have marshmallow vodka, you can also use regular vodka and add a splash of vanilla extract for flavor.
  • Use a strawberry Cream Liqueur instead of marshmallow for a strawberry flavor.
  • Add 1 tsp grenadine and shake it with all the ingredients to make this a pink cocktail.

Serving Recommendations 

Serve this cocktail in a martini glass for an elegant presentation.

Add a peep on the side of the glass as a fun and festive garnish.

This cocktail pairs well with Easter brunch dishes like quiche or deviled eggs.

Measure the ingredients beforehand, shake them up, and strain them just before guests arrive.

  • 2 ounces marshmallow vodka, vanilla or whipped will work too
  • 1 ounce marshmallow liqueur , creamy strawberry liqueur will work too
  • 1 ounce heavy cream


  • Begin by preparing your glass. Dip the rim of a martini glass in water or simple syrup, then dip it in sanding sugar to create a sugar rim.
  • Add 2 oz of marshmallow vodka, 1 oz of marshmallow liqueur, and 1 oz of heavy cream in a shaker.
  • Add ice to the shaker and shake vigorously for at least 20 seconds to chill and mix the ingredients.

Make sure to chill your ingredients beforehand, especially the heavy cream. This will help keep the drink cold and prevent it from becoming watery.
Use a shaker with a strainer rather than a regular mixing glass to ensure all ingredients are well combined and there are no lumps in the cocktail.
Experiment with different flavors by using various types of vodka or liqueur.
