Candy Corn Martini
Trick or treat. Smell my feet. Give me something good to eat. And by good, I mean a boozy Candy Corn Martini.
This week the #SundaySupper team is at it again. We’re creating some spooktacular (sorry, I just had to) treats for Halloween. Did you know that Halloween is the most popular holiday in the United States? I mean, I love candy as much as the other guy, but who knew it would surpass Christmas and presents. Wow!
Squirrel and I don’t go all out for Halloween, which means we don’t get dressed up and go to Halloween parties, haunted houses, or zombie bar crawls. Call me lame, but I just can’t see spending all of that money on a costume that I’m only going to wear once. Instead, we stay home and hand candy out to the cute little fancied up kiddos that go trick-or-treating. I just love seeing all of them in their creative Halloween gear.
Halloween isn’t just for the kiddies. Adults can have fun, too, and that’s why I created a fun adult treat- candy corn martinis! Why not sort the candy while sipping on a sweet cocktail?
First, you get yourself some vodka and a bag or two of candy corn. Then, you get yourself a glass bottle and add a generous amount of candy corn and a few good gluggs of vodka. Give it a good shake and leave it alone for 3 hours to allow the vodka and candy corn to get to know each other. After impatiently waiting for 3 hours, strain it.
What you end up with is a very delicious and very orange alcoholic concoction.
Add a shot of vanilla vodka, a bit of pineapple juice, a squeeze of orange juice, and a splash of lemon and you have yourself a festive Halloween cocktail.
Who said adults don’t know how to have a good time?
I sipped on this cocktail after photographing it. What was I supposed to do? Let a perfectly good cocktail go to waste? Oh no, that’s not allowed in Jennie’s kitchen. You shake it. You sip it.
So what if it was only 12 p.m.
Candy corn cocktail in my right hand + a snickers bar in my left hand= Halloween bliss.
Happy Halloween! Enjoy.
