Forget the trick! Bring on the treat. Sweeten up your Halloween this year with a little candy corn infused vodka. If you love candy corn, then you will adore an adult cocktail created from the classic Halloween candy. After all, why should the kids have all of the Halloween fun?

Treat your party guests to an infused vodka treat this Halloween. Infusing vodka is simple and the outcome is delicious. Vodka naturally takes on other flavors making it the perfect spirit to infuse with. Also, you don't have to use expensive vodka to achieve great results. A mid-range vodka such as Stoli, ABSOLUT or SKYY is just fine.

This looks soooo good. I don't even remember if I like candy corn because I probably last had it as a young kid, but this is a great way to try it again. :)
