It’s no trick! This Candy Corn Vodka is a total treat fit for Halloween. Infuse vodka with the iconic tri-striped candy to yield a pumpkin-colored spirit worthy of the spookiest party.
Love it or hate it, candy corn season is here, and this Candy Corn Vodka is here to prove it.
Candy corn is one of the top-selling Halloween candies in the nation, but those little neon-striped pyramids can divide a crowd in a heartbeat.
My cousin loves it more than anyone I’ve ever met. When she went to college, my dad would send her a care package every fall — mainly just a box full of candy corn, her favorite.
My dad, on the other hand, will not touch the stuff. Unless it’s to mail said care packages.
Me? I’m on the fence. I’ll eat a few, but after a while they just taste like sugar to me!
Apparently it’s extra terrible for your teeth (can’t say I’m that surprised), which dentists must love.
But Halloween comes just once a year, so thankfully there’s few opportunities to overindulge.
That is, unless you’re into the various other color schemes offered throughout the year. (Red and pink cupid corn, anyone? Hard pass!)
Plus, I’m not sure that the red & green Christmas candy corn combination would result in quite as gorgeous a color for candy-corn-infused vodka.

Variations on candy corn vodka
Feel free to sub out the vodka for a clear moonshine or silver rum that you can use to mix into cocktails. I bet candy corn rum or candy corn moonshine would be really delicious and fun!
If you’re in a pinch, you can use plain or vanilla vodka and add 2-3 drops of each red and yellow food coloring to achieve a similar look, though it will lack that special candy corn flavor.
Candy corn cocktails
If you’re hosting a Halloween party, you could easily whip up a few batches of this Candy Corn Vodka recipe to serve to your guests.
You can use it in a Candy Corn Martini, which layers candy corn vodka with pineapple juice and heavy cream, and it looks just like a candy corn cocktail.
But it’s also sweet enough to sip over ice or even enjoy as a shooter. (Just make sure you brush your teeth afterward!)

(Though it might be a good idea to find out her opinion on candy corn first!)
