So, you know, in the spirit of both All Hallows Eve and using up whatever random ingredients are sitting in your house while you wait out the storm, no time like the present to try a little foray into homemade candy corn vodka. Think of it as a step up from Skittlebrau, a step down from that weird-but-sort-of-good whipped cream vodka. And remember: you're trapped in the house today, so there's likely nothing else better to do at all. Fun? Fun!
- As much candy corn as you want.
- As much vodka as you want (feel free to go for a nicer brand if you're not working with a writer's salary).
- A container of some sort.
- A strainer.
The process is even easier.
Serving chilled with a candy corn garnish — and maybe even a pineapple juice mixer — is optional but recommended.
