Candy Corn Rum
Nothing screams Halloween quite like sugary, stale candy corn. Try infusing your next rum drink with the sweet treats. Add two cups of rum to about two ounces of candy corn and let sit for 36 hours. Strain the candy corn from the rum. Now you’re left with two options: enjoy the sweet rum or the alcoholic candy. Maybe the candy corn will finally be soft enough to enjoy.
Make That Lolli Pop
How many licks does it take to get to the drunk? Over low heat, combine two cups of granulated white sugar, 30 ml of gin and 125 ml of tonic water in a saucepan. When the sugar fully dissolves, bring the mixture to a broil (around 300° F) for 10 minutes, or until golden brown in color. Add three tablespoons of food coloring (optional). Pour into 12 lightly greased lollipop molds and press a lollipop stick into each. Let cool and serve.
Get that alcoholic buzz and satisfy your sugar rush, trick–or–treating unnecessary. Mix Kaluha liqueur with vanilla vodka, and add some Creme de Cocoa if you so choose. Stir together in a shooter glass and top with a dollop of whipped cream and a handful of M&Ms. Drunk never tasted this good.
Drunk Gummy Bears
There are few drinking buddies better than vodka–soaked gummy bears. Use the candy–stocked shelves of CVS to your advantage and make this delicious treat. Soak a bag of gummy bears in enough vodka to just cover them. Cover the bowl and place it in the fridge for 24 hours. Drain excess vodka and use for whatever you see fit.
