Flirty Candy-Tini


candy corn tini 6

The third installment in the Valentine’s candy corn saga…why anyone would bring my candy at Christmas with all the sweets I make?   Oy!    Alas, I am using it as inspiration. I took a page from my fellow Austin foodie, 1 Fine Cookie, and her candy vodka. After seeing the success she had, why not try it with candy corn? So I grabbed my new favorite vodka, Starlite Vodka (I’d link to it but I can’t find one…it’s pretty new!), a handful of candy corn and let time do the rest. candy corn vodka 1

Unlike my fellow foodie friend, the candy corn dissolved almost completely in 1 day so I added another handful to see if it would dissolve as well. Good news, it did! And all that’s left is just little wax at the bottom.candy corn vodka


So far I’ve tried two recipes (number 2 coming soon!) and it’s done great in both. The candy corn imparts a great red color and mild marshmallow type flavor. This just screams Valentine’s Day!
