Permit me a moment of unadulterated arrogance…

I am… The Boozy Marshmallow Queen. A queen who has usurped all these marshmallow makers and took their crowns by force.

Step aside.

Boozy marshmallows are my domain. This is MY.KINGDOM.

Mmmhmm – That’s right. Eff modesty. I’m a revolutionary.

BOOM!

Fly kicking flavors doors, showing you new things.

Peep this.

You’re familiar with mojitos right? Of course you are. I made one the other day. Now what if I told you I took all the flavors of a classic mojito – Limes, mint, and rum – And turned them into a squishy pillow of marshmallow goodness?

Impossible?

Nah, bruh – I am the Boozy Marshmallow Queen.

Your mind, it is blown.

Making marshmallows is simple. BUT before you skip to the recipe, there are do’s and don’t you’ll need to follow.

  • DO follow the ratios in the recipe. We went through the whole trial and error situation so you won’t have to.
  • DO Use a candy thermometer. You may think you can eyeball 240 degrees Fahrenheit, followed by a drop in temperature to 210 degrees Fahrenheit – But the truth is you can’t. No one can. For the love of all that’s holy – buy a candy thermometer. They’re like $8. 
  • DO use unflavored gelatin. It comes in packets. I like the Knox brand.
  • DO NOT use lime Jell-o. 
  • DO NOT substitute gelatin for agar-agar or any other vegetarian/vegan substitute. Not that there’s anything wrong with vegetarian/vegan substitutes – They just won’t work here. You may end up with a gummy mess.
  • DO substitute corn syrup for any mild flavored invert sugar situation.
  • DO NOT substitute sugar for Splenda or Equal or any other sugar substitute. I’m not not versed on the chemical reaction of combining sugar substitutes with heat and booze. 
  • DO use booze. It’s the whole reason why we’re making these marshmallows.
  • Do substitute the booze in this recipe. If dark rum ain’t your steeze – Go the light rum route. Or spiced rum.
  • DO NOT put your hands inside the boozy sugar syrup no matter how pretty it looks. That shit WILL BURN YOU.
  • DO allow the marshmallows to set. Stop being so impatient. Your patience will be rewarded.

Really… If you follow these simple dos and don’ts these tasty marshmallows will be gracing your lip situations in no time.

Do they taste like a mojito? Why, yes – Yes they do. In candy form. You’re hit with the bracing essence and taste of lime, followed closely by rum.

Finally – There’s the hint of cool mint. You must savor these. Relish in the moment. And if you permit another second of pure arrogance – These marshmallows are truly what makes me Queen.
