I just saw this little drinkie recipe in our newspaper last Sunday and bought the ingredients yesterday. We are not big drinkers, contrary to my last post, but this sounded so good. I can just picture myself in my black ruffled skirt and orange cat ears, carrying this orange candy corn martini in my hand as I answer the door to welcome my little goblins. I don't know why that picture in my head appeals to me. But I won't analyze that!
Anyway, I wanted to share the recipe in case any of you have that same fantasy picture in your head.
Candy Corn Martini
1/2 cup candy corn, plus extra for garnish
1-1/2 cups vodka
2 oz. orange liqueur
juice of 1/2 lemon
l large egg white
In a jar with an airtight lid, combine the 1/2 cup of candy corn and the vodka. Cover and set aside for at least 3 hours. When ready, strain out and discard the solids. (I did this last night and my candy corn vodka is now in the freezer, ready to go)
To prepare the drinks, in a cocktail shaker filled with ice combine 4 ounces (1/2 cup) of the candy corn vodka, the orange liqueur, lemon juice and egg white Shake vigorously for at least 30 seconds, then strain into 2 chilled martini glasses. Garnish with candy corn.
I might have to taste test this tonight. I sure hope my acid reflux is good with this. I'll let you know.
