Candy Corn Martini - Recipe

Ok, so are you dying to know how to make that lively orange libation - called a "Candy Corn Martini"???  Wait no longer, here's the recipe to some devilishly delightful Halloween infusion! 













Candy Corn Martini - serves 2 (or 1 big one!)
3 ounces Absolut vodka 
3/4 cup candy corn (I highly recommend Brach's)
3 ounces Absolut vanilla vodka
1 ounce of Grand Marnier (orange liqueur)
2 tablespoons of sugar (for rimming the glass)

Combine vodka and candy corns in a glass container with a lid for 24 hours.  Open container, stir and strain out small remaining candy parts.  Set aside.

Rim the martini glass by dipping the rim in your choice of liquids (vodka, orange liqueur or candy corn vodka).  We used the candy corn vodka for more flavor.  Then coat with sugar (we used sanding sugar for more coarse look) by dipping the glass into a saucer with sugar on it.

In a martini shaker combine the candy corn vodka, the vanilla vodka and the orange liqueur with a handful of ice.  Shake to chill and pour into 2 prepared martini glasses.  Garnish with 2-3 Candy Corns in the bottom if desired. 

OR.....

The more "Candy" version:
  • 1 C vodka
  • 3/4 C candy corn, plus extra for garnish
  • 1/4 C butterscotch schnapps
  • Ice

  • As in the previously mentioned recipe, soak the candy corns in the Vodka for about 24 hours, strain out liquid and set aside. Put a few candy corns in the bottom of martini glass. In a shaker, add in vodka, and butterscotch schnapps - shake. Then add ice and strain into glass over infused candy corns.  YuM!

    I'd add in to drink responsibly, but that'd take all the fun out it!

    Mmm, yes!!! More please! Actually, I think in this case, a little goes a long way. Can imagine that drinking too much of this sweet concoction might make you a wee bit sick!
