After all the doors have been knocked and all the candy has been collected, it may seem like all the Halloween excitement is over for the year. But really, this is when the fun begins — the fun of eating the candy!
It may be somewhat difficult to get your hands on your kids’ Halloween candy. (After all, they were the ones who did all the work!) But if you’re able to sneak a piece or two into your possession, may we suggest using them for a hauntingly delicious cocktail?
Candy-flavored cocktails may sound a bit frightful, but don’t let the idea scare you off. Here are some terrifyingly tasty cocktails you can whip up using Halloween candy!
Gummy Bear Sangria
Instead of popping all of the gummy bears in your mouth, save a few and put their sweet, chewy goodness to work in a uniquely flavored sangria. This recipe for a Gummy Bear Sangria gives you all the fruity flavors you expect from a handcrafted sangria and mixes it all together with the unexpected addition of gummy bears.
Skittles have just about everything you can ask for in a candy: bright, vibrant colors and a refreshing flavor. And guess what! The exact same thing can be said about this recipe for Skittles Vodka!
Jolly Rancher Vodka
Don’t let all those extra Jolly Ranchers at the bottom of your kids’ candy bags go to waste! Turn Jolly Ranchers from a hard, sticky candy into a flavor-infused vodka that sports vibrant colors.
Just like you can with Jolly Ranchers, you can infuse your favorite vodka with the fruity flavors of Starburst candies.
Year after year, Starburst seem to be one of the more popular candies that are handed out at Halloween. So chances are, you’ll be able to get your hand on enough of them to use in your Starburst-Infused Vodka!
Candy Corn Martini
Besides jack-o-lanterns and black cats, candy corn is one of the most recognizable symbols of Halloween. It only makes sense that there’s a flavorful cocktail that includes candy corn in the recipe. Check out this recipe for Candy Corn Martinis!
