Candy Corn Martini (makes 2):
from We are not
• 1 C vodka
• 3/4 C candy corn, plus extra for garnish
• 1/4 C butterscotch schnapps
• 1 egg white (optional)
• Ice
This recipe is really incredibly basic. The most difficult part is pouring the candy corn in the vodka and letting it soak for about 3 hours, while you watch it turn the most ridiculously bright shade of orange ever and try not to eat the remaining candy corn straight from the bag.
Once your candy corn has soaked for 3 hours and your vodka can’t get much brighter, you’re ready to mix your martini!
In a shaker with ice, add 1 C candy corn-infused vodka, 1/4 C butterscotch schnapps, and the egg white. I mention the egg white being optional because I know some people are afraid of adding egg whites to their cocktails. I personally have no fear (especially when using a good farm fresh egg), but the egg white didn’t have quite the effect I was hoping for (froth!) in my martini. After doing a bit of research, I learned I should have shook the cocktail without ice a few times before adding the ice in. Who knew!
Get out your martini glasses and throw a few candy corn in the bottom because more is always better. At least in theory.
Shake the mixture well and pour that luscious orange liquid into the glasses.
Yes, the color is absolutely ridiculous. But it will also make for quite the Halloween party cocktail conversation starter.
