Try both, and then you decide! Comment below to tell us your vote….

Either way, beware of the aftermath that may ensue — could be unhealthy for the peeps! Here’s what happened to ours, when we tested in the “lab”:

Tequila Peeprise

Tequila Peeprise
  • 1.5oz Jose Cuervo Tequila
  • 3/4 cup fresh orange juice
  • 1.5oz grenadine syrup
  • 1 maraschino cherry
  • Don’t forget the Peep!

Stir or shake together tequila and orange juice. Fill a chilled 12 ounce glass with ice cubes; pour in orange juice mixture. Slowly pour in the grenadine, and allow it to settle to the bottom of the glass (be patient). Garnish with a an orange slice (optional), a maraschino cherry, and a marshmallow peep!


  • 6oz Sauza Hornitos Tequila
  • 4oz Triple Sec or Cointreau
  • 2oz Grand Marnier
  • 4oz Lime juice
  • 2tbsp Confectioners’ sugar
  • 1 row of frozen peeps
  • 1 non-frozen peep (garnishes and other extras optional)

1. Fill a martini glass with crushed ice and cold water, to begin chilling the glass.

2. Over a small plate or cutting board, rub the whole row of peeps between your hands until the frozen and colored sugar coating rains onto the surface below.  This will be a messy nuisance, getting all over your hands — just deal with it.

3. Fill a large shaker with ice cubes, add tequila and triple sec first, then lime juice and confectioners’ sugar (or substitute 2oz simple syrup).

4. Dump the icewater from the martini glass, and rub the upside-down glass in the “peep dust” to create the colored sugar rim.

5. Carefully refill the glass with crushed ice.

6. Shake the shaker, strain into martini glass over the crushed ice, and garnish as illustrated.
