Candy Corn Cocktail Shooters

As soon as forth of July is here Chad is looking for candy corn. Oh no, I am not kidding.  So, being the supportive and loving wife that I am, I buy a few bags for him.  So weeks later I have an epiphany and decide to make a candy corn dessert.  I ask Chad where are the candy corns.  He looks at me as if I were speaking Greek.  Turns his head to the side...  You know the look.  So, here we go back to the store to buy more. Much to Chads excitement we found a 4 pound bag this year.

While creating the cocktail for this weeks Ladies Night Celebration Chad was incredibly inspired by some of his favorite candies from his days Trick or Treating.  In the end he had created 3 amazing cocktails and couldn't choose so he decided to share them ALL with you today.  He decided to create another candy corn cocktail.  He came up with an awesome flavor combination for this cocktail.  The Candy Corn Shooter is rich, creamy, citrusy and candy corn flavored.  You are going to love this!

Enjoy and have a fantastic Ladies Night!
