HALLOWEEN: Candy Corn Cocktail

What’s “adult Halloween?”

It’s a gathering of friends to enjoy candy-inspired cocktails. Here’s the first of our Halloween cocktails, courtesy of Hornitos Tequila.

To evoke candy corn, this cocktail has been layered with ingredients of different densities that rest atop each other, like oil and vinegar (more about layered cocktails).

With a hint of mint, this cocktail doesn’t taste like candy corn. But you can serve some on the side!


Ingredients Per Drink

  • 1 part silver Tequila
  • ¼ part maple syrup
  • ½ part white creme de menthe

    1. Chill ingredients, if desired.

    2. Layer ingredients in a tall glass.

    3. Drink from the bottom, through a straw.
