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.
