If you are a fan of candy floss, you are going to want to try this super fun old fashioned recipe. From the blog Sugar and Charm, the cotton candy-topped cocktail is a sweet take on a classic alcoholic beverage.

To try this old fashioned recipe at home, you will need bourbon, Angosturra bitters, orange peel, ice and a "puff" of orange cotton candy (to get the correct aesthetic). You will also need a cotton candy machine to create said puff.

This is not the first time cotton candy has been used in an adult setting, but the combination of a stuffier libation with the fun, carnival-esque treat is unexpected. This makes it perfect for grown adults who still feel like a kid on the inside.
