#DOTW: Peach Candy Corn

It’s here! The time is here, Halloween is right around the corner, time for some spooky cocktails! Most of us grown ups are ready to celebrate right alongside all the children, and obviously we need to make cocktails that flatter the holiday. This Candy Corn cocktail is definitely for our spooky people with a sweet tooth, and it’s so fun to look at. It calls for layering of the liquids, so mass production is not optimal here.



What you’ll need:

  • 1 1/2 oz Pinnacle Whipped Cream Vodka
  • 3/4 oz grenadine
  • 1 oz pineapple juice
  • 2 oz Ice peach nectarine soda
  • whipped cream
  • candy corn

This cocktail needs to be layered. Make sure all the ingredients are chilled in the refrigerator. Layering happens by tilting the glass as much as possible, then pouring the liquid slowly on top of the previous one. Start with grenadine, then follow with pineapple juice, peach soda, vodka. Top off with thick whipped cream and garnish with candy corn.

Hello there, fellow foodies! My name is Erica, I was born and raised in Germany, and moved to the US, New York City to be exact, in July of 1987. I have worked most of my time here in the Big Apple as a bartender, but my true love is food. I cook just about every day, I search for good food everywhere, and pretty much always find it. I don't consider myself a food critic, I don't have the culinary background for that kind of expertise. I do however know good food, good chefs and good restaurants. I report back about my culinary adventures, and I choose to leave out my unsatisfactory experiences. We have enough negativity in our daily lives, I don't want to add to that. All the recipes in my FROM MY KITCHEN and DOTW blogs are cooked and prepared by me. All pictures are taken by me. I don't always eat everything you see in my pictures, but you bet your buns, I do try everything. Last but not least, you should know that I am a huge Top Chef fan. I have never missed an episode of the Bravo TV show. I have at this point visited almost 20 restaurants run by Top Chef contestants, and I'm continuously impressed by their skill, drive and passion. So I will continue to seek them out, and I hope you join me in my journey!
