Up the spooky fun this Halloween with our easy neon-coloured Candy Corn Martini. It’s definitely a crowd pleaser for your spooky get-together using iconic Candy Corn-infused vodka.

So, if you’ve got a few bags and aren’t sure what to do with them, turn them into easily infused vodka to make Halloween Martinis. 

QUICK TIPS

01

Go slow. For the best layers, go slowly as pouring too fast will blend the layers together

Don’t forget to stir. For the perfect pour, give the cream a good stir to loosen it

Candy Corn overload. Make an extra sweet rim with crushed up candies instead of popcorn

This Candy Corn Martini is neon orange grown-up drink that’s over-the-top sweet, made with candy-infused vodka.

Tips on making a candy cane-infused vodka

Making infused vodka is really simple with our top tips: 

  • Choose an airtight container for infusion so the alcohol doesn’t evaporate, ideally a glass mason jar as plastic tends to absorb other flavours 
  • If you are making enough for a crowd, use a bigger glass jar or bottle or jar 
  •  Add the Candy Corn to the jar and cover with vodka, giving it a good stir before sealing to kickstart the infusion process 
  • Allow the Candy Corn vodka to infuse for 4-5 hours or ideally overnight 
  • Once infused, strain and rebottle into a clean glass jar and chill before using in Halloween Cocktails. Easy as pie!
