This Candy Corn cocktail is far different than the popular layered shooter by the same name and we have Jonathan Pogash, the Cocktail Guru, to thank for it.

It's an extremely creative drink that features kettle corn-infused gin. Yes, that's right, kettle corn. The method for creating this unique infusion is below, and you will want to take the extra time to make it as it is the key to bringing together this sweet Halloween-worthy drink.

You will also notice that Pogash uses a citrus peel grenadine. This is another ingredient you can make yourself and keep on hand to add a hint of citrus to other grenadine cocktails.

What You'll Need

  • 1 1/2 ounces Bombay Sapphire Gin* (kettle corn infused)
  • 1/2 ounce Moscato wine (sweet dessert wine)
  • 3/4 ounce citrus peel grenadine syrup** 
  • Garnish: 3 candy corns

How to Make It

  1. In a cocktail shaker, combine all of the ingredients with ice.
  2. Shake very well.
  3. Strain into a chilled cocktail glass.
  4. Garnish with candy corns.

*Kettle Corn-Infused Bombay Sapphire

  2. Allow it to infuse in an airtight container for approximately 24 hours.
  3. Fine strain kettle corn and re-bottle.

**Citrus Peel Grenadine Syrup

  1. For every 1 cup of POM wonderful pomegranate juice, dissolve 1 cup granulated sugar on the stove top.

  2. Remove skins and chill syrup.
