Tonight's cocktail is a Candy Corn Cocktail. Check out Shay's post on it
. It's difficult joining in when the reviews are not stellar -- but I'm committed to it this week, I've already put the vodka in with the candy corn ...
and a friend is coming over to help with this tasting.
Here's the link for the recipe we used: http://www.gingersnapsblog.com/2013/10/recipe-candy-corn-martini.html
. I googled "candy corn martini" today and found several others.
The vodka/candy corn mixture wasn't nearly as clear as the one in the link. I didn't do the "glasses" up as pretty as Shay
, though I did dip the rims in sugar. We actually thought the martini tasted okay. I might even say pretty good. I don't have a rating scale yet (Shay's was 2.5 out of 5.0), but this was so much better than last week's. Last week's cocktail's only saving grace was that the vodka wasn't infused with anything (i.e., candy corn) so the vodka was still usable (we used it this week).
I didn't read the directions on how much candy corn and vodka to put in the jar which may account for the cloudiness of the mixture and I used lemon vodka.
Anyway, on to next week ..
p.s. don't you just love the plastic martinit glasses??
