I personally ADORE candy corn. The Halloween treat gets a bad rap. I'd been really surprised that there aren't more candy corn-flavored beverages out there, until I stumbled upon this martini recipe.

Apparently, the combination of rum, pineapple juice, and grenadine equates the flavor of candy corn. I'm willing to find out. I'm also curious if it has less calories than actual candy corn, because that would be a bonus, too.

If you love candy corn, here's what you need to make this martini, according to Blue Chair Bay Rum:

  • 4 oz coconut rum
  • 3 oz spiced rum
  • 4 oz pineapple juice
  • 2 dashes grenadine⁠
  • Shake with a couple ice cubes.
  • Top with a maraschino cherry and a piece of candy corn (duh!, lol).

By the way, if you love seasonal cocktails and craft beer, come out for Witch Craft Beer Festival at Lake Lenape in Mays Landing on Saturday, October 19th. It's going to be a 'wicked' good time where you can sample lots of fall flavors.
