Questions & Answers for Sour Jujubes Cocktail/Slush

Q1: How long should you infuse jujubes in vodka?
A1: It is ideal to let the jujubes infuse in the vodka for at least overnight, approximately 8 to 12 hours. This helps extract the maximum flavor and color from the candy.

Q2: Can we use other types of candy for this cocktail?
A2: Yes, you can use other types of sour candies to infuse the vodka. The choice of candies may vary depending on your taste preferences or availability. Just make sure they are sour to maintain the desired taste profile.

Q3: What are the alternatives to Sprite and lemonade in this recipe?
A3: If you want to substitute the Sprite or lemonade, you can use other clear sodas like 7Up or ginger ale for the Sprite, and sweetened diluted lemon juice for the lemonade. These substitutions may slightly change the final taste but will keep the cocktail fresh.

Q4: How to serve this cocktail for a large reception?
A4: To serve this cocktail at a large party, you can prepare the infused vodka in large batches in advance and mix the slushies in several batches. Serve in glasses prepared with the syrup and flakes for quick and efficient service.

Q5: Is it possible to prepare this cocktail without alcohol?
A5: For a non-alcoholic version, replace the vodka with water or an additional soda, and use non-infused candy directly in the blender. This version will be more suitable for children and people avoiding alcohol.

Q6: Should you put the infused candies in the blender when making the cocktail, and what do you do with them after infusion?
A6: No, infused candies should not be added to the blender. After infusing the vodka, the candies will have lost most of their texture and will have transferred their flavors to the alcohol. They will usually be too softened to be pleasant to eat or use in drinking. It is advisable to throw them away once they have been used for infusion. If you want to add a visual touch with candy, use fresh candy to decorate the cocktail or glass instead.
