Mixology Monday With The Leveretts - Candy Corn Vodka Cocktail

October 25, 2021  •  Leave a Comment

Hey There Ghouls & Boys!

Today is the last Monday before Halloween so we had to share a recipe incorporating the day! We chose to focus on the candy and derived inspiration from probably the most divisive one. Candy corn. It's no secret that many (including myself) hate candy corn. Stephanie Hayes says, "It tastes like wax and is shaped like tears." and I couldn't agree more.  Fortunately this drink tastes nothing like the candy... kinda like how the candy tastes nothing like corn. We took some liberties and used Vido Vodka, an orange liqueur and aperol for a spicy, orangey, yummy sip. No matter what side of the candy corn fence you stand, we hope you enjoy! As always, if you make any of our drinks, take a picture and share them with us online! Instagram ---> @ staynfocusimages

This makes 2 drinks! Let's get started!


Here's what you need:

For Garnish
Orange Zest

For Drink
4 oz. VIDO Premium Vodka

Fresh Squeezed Lemon Juice (1 lemon)
2 oz.  Simple Syrup 
2 Egg Whites 
2 oz. Orangecello Liqueur

1 oz. Aperol
1/8 tsp Cardamom 

You will also need a shaker cup, 2 flutes (glasses), and a hawthorne strainer


Let's Make the Drink!

Note: If you actually LIKE candy corn, you can infuse your vodka by soaking the candy (in a separate jar) for at least 4 hours or even overnight. If you use the infused vodka you may want to skip adding the simple syrup in the steps below.

  1. In your shaker cup, add:

    • Juice from one Lemon

    • Egg Whites from 2 eggs

    • Few dashes of Cardamom (1/8 tsp.)

  2. Dry Shake Vigorously (45 seconds or so to 'cook' the egg and create a nice foam)

  3. Add to your shaker cup:

    • Ice

    • VIDO Premium Vodka (4 oz.)

    • Orangecello Liqueur (2 oz.)

    • Simple Syrup (2 oz.)

  4. Shake vigorously again (30 seconds or so).

  5. Strain evenly between your two flutes, topping with foam (may need to use a spoon).

  6. Using a Barspoon to break the surface of the foam, gently pour in your Aperol (approx 1/2 oz. for each glass)

  7. Top with Nutmeg and Orange Zest

  8. Enjoy!
