Candy Corn Martini

Candy Corn Martini

I know what some of you are thinking. You’re thinking that this sounds disgusting. You are a candy corn hater.

I am not a candy corn hater, thus, this drink is delicious. I fear I am going to need a candy corn intervention soon. I might even turn into a piece of candy corn.

I think people either love it or hate it. If you hated it, you cringed every time someone put bags of candy corn in your trick-or-treating bag and then after you were done, you did everything in your power to trade your candy corn full-size Snickers bars.

Whatevs, I’ll take your candy corn, but I won’t give you my Snickers bars either. I’m greedy like that. Sorry.

So this drink…you start out by infusing vodka with candy corn for a few hours. It turns bright orange and gets all nice and sweet. Throw a few more ingredients into the martini shaker, toss some more candy corn in a glass and it’s time to get your candy corn on! This drink is a must for your Halloween parties!
