Original Inspiration: http://pinterestfail.com/2013/04/01/fail-the-fish-bowl/

What I Did: My friend wanted the fishbowl drink for her bday. She asked how I would do it because she saw the fail version. I’m full of win.

Premixed the beverage. Put the nerds in, added ice and fish candy then poured the drink. I was perfect.

    This is adorable, and props to LenaBena for creating such a cute “winning” spin on this.

    However…

    The original pin that failed so many times around the internet has failed because it was done in a fish bowl – which is what the pin was originally served in. It is considerably harder to create and structure the elements of this beverage in a large-scale vessel than it is to create it in a stemless wine glass. So although I would consider this a win, it’s not really proving the original pin is a win. In my opinion, the original pin is still a fail.

      Really interesting point Cat!

    Cat: Like the picture shows, it really just needed to be loaded with lots of ice for it to work, fish bowl-sized or not. Also, sequence matters a lot. You need to put the ice in first to prevent the candy from mixing with the drink immediately.

    I am going to try the Sea Salt and Cracked Pepper chips. This is what I use on my tuna casseroles and it is yummy!
