The best Candy Corn Martini recipe

Make the infused vodka ahead of time, ideally a few hours or days before your party, and the rest is as easy as pumpkin pie. For your base, pick a decent vodka such as  Skyy Vodka.

How to make Candy Cane-infused vodka

Making infused vodka is really simple:

  • Choose an airtight container for infusion so the alcohol doesn’t evaporate, ideally a glass mason jar as plastic tends to absorb other flavors
  • If you’re 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!

Useful tips

  • Don’t forget to stir. For the perfect pour, give the cream a good stir to loosen it
  • No tricks, just treats. Why should adults miss out on all the trick-or-treating fun? Make edible gifts for your party guests by decanting the Candy Cane-infused vodka into mini bottles to take home
  • Candy Corn overload. Big Candy Corn fan? Make an extra sweet rim with crushed-up candies instead of popcorn

Candy Corn is a small corn kernel shaped candy with 3 colored layers of white, orange and yellow. These candies have a creamy, waxy texture and are typically marshmallow and vanilla flavor.

For best results, soak your Candy Corn in vodka for a minimum of four hours but, if you can, leave it overnight.

Candy Corn vodka takes on all the sweet marshmallow creaminess that’s infused from the candy with vanilla layered notes.
