I didn't like this drink. I followed the recipe exactly but maybe I used the wrong kind of jelly beans? No brand was specified so I used Brach's. It was easy to make and looked pretty but it tasted a lot like Robitussin cherry flavored cough syrup. Read More

Wayyy to sweet! The whipped cream vodka is very sweet with the jelly beans - tried to cut with the plain vodka, that still didn't work. Read More
