There are debates about which Starburst is the best (I’m looking at you red) but when it comes to a boozy liquid version, pink will do just fine. I imagine we all got our fill of these trick or treating. They usually came in a two pack and inevitably one of them was always pink.

This flavor packed sipper has a strange resemblance to the chewy candy. Strawberry in flavor, and potent in alcohol, a few simple fun ingredients gets the job done. You have to use your imagination here a little. Hopefully you’re not relying on Starburst for accurate fruit flavor and same goes for this drink. While both are strawberry, you’ll have to turn to another drink for authentic strawberry flavor and freshness. This flavor combo is more nostalgia than fresh off the farm.

That works for me since trick or treat candy always had that unique smell and taste. It hit different. The combination of all the candy sitting in a pail or pillow case just took on a glorious smell of its own. I digress, try this drink out and see what you think. Would you do anything different?

EDIT: so during my testing, I forgot there is a watermelon Starburst. Change out the strawberry liqueur for Watermelon Pucker and boom, you now have a pink watermelon Starburst.
