Someone asked this question amongst friends one evening while standing in the kitchenette area of my home. More than one dish filled with candy corn surrounded us, along with orange, yellow and white Halloween decor — including my mini terra cotta pots and my pumpkin trio tower, both created to resemble candy corn.
By the looks of it, I love candy corn. In actuality, I have a love/hate relationship with candy corn. If you are wondering, I did not confess to not loving the orange and yellow, white tipped candy.
My love of candy corn includes the festive colors, the Halloween tradition and the memory of my grandmother refusing to buy candy corn or those pink wintergreen lozenges unless they were made by Brach's.
Eating the sugary, syrupy, wax-like candy created to resemble kernels of corn? No, thank you. As much as I love the look, the tradition and the memories, I do not like the waxy coating or super-sweet flavor of candy corn at all.
Let me tell you what I do like: pineapple juice, orange juice and rum. I especially like coconut rum. Those four ingredients mixed together create a cocktail that I really like. That cocktail poured into a sugar-rimmed glass and topped with grenadine creates a festive Halloween cocktail that shares the same colors of candy corn. In my opinion, it tastes so much better than candy corn.
Beautiful! The grenadine will make its way to the bottom of the glass, which creates the color orange, topped with a layer of the color yellow and then a white sugared rim. The three colors of candy corn make a Halloween Party Punch that is sure to be a crowd pleaser.
