A Candy Corn Cocktail for Halloween

Serve this treat at your next Halloween party or fill a flask with this Candy Corn Cocktail to take with you trick-or-treat with the kids tonight.  The trick is you have to prepare it in advance to allow the candy corn to infuse the vodka.  The longer it sits, the stronger the candy corn flavor and the darker the orange the vodka becomes.

Candy Corn Cocktail

Using an air-tight storage container (I used a recycled Chinese take-out soup container.), combine two cups Pinnacle Whipped Cream Vodka with a half cup of candy corn.  Seal and store in the refrigerator.  Ideally, you want the mixture to sit for 12 hours, but no less than four hours.  If you prepare the mixture in the morning, your treat will be chilled and ready for your Halloween festivities at night.

After a few hours, the candy corn mixture will look like a specimen from a sci fi thriller.  Remove the container from the fridge and give it a good shake to break down the candy corn a bit more.  Using a sieve, strain the mixture into a glass or pitcher.  Then, pour one cup of the candy corn vodka into a cocktail shaker and combine with two cups of ice and a jigger full of orange liqueur, such as Patrón Citronge.   Shake it up well and then serve it in a martini glass garnished with a few candy corns.

    This sounds so good! I wish I had the candy corn and orange liqueur to make it! I will just have to settle for whipped vodka with a candy bar on the side for tonight. :)
