The sweet flavors of candy corn come to life in this neat little cocktail. Beyond simulating the taste of the Halloween favorite, this is a fun use for a rather interesting vodka, UV Cake. It is one of the new flavored vodkas that are following a dessert flavor trend and these require creative use in drinks.

I chose to share this Candy Corn Cocktail because it is a viable use for the unique flavor of a cake-flavored vodka and it does require a sweet tooth to enjoy. It is a simple drink and rather rich (though the soda does cut that a bit), but also has an interesting mix of flavors. If you enjoy thick, nectarous drinks this may be a good option. My one piece of advice is to ensure your candy corn is finely crushed in order for it to cover the rim correctly.
