Candy-Infused Liquor for Cocktails

  • Rate This
Use up leftover Halloween candy by experimenting with sweet, colorful infusions for cocktails. A combination of the infuse/extract setting in the Anova Precision Chamber Vacuum Sealer, plus a slow, low-temp cook in a water bath with the Precision Cooker yields flavor-packed liquors ready to shake and stir into boozy beverages. You can use these proportions and settings for any candy+liquor combination you choose, but here are some of our favorites: London dry gin and herbal candies (use it in a martini!) Bourbon and candy corn (use it in an old fashioned!) Vodka and Tootsie Rolls (use it in an espresso martini!) Tequila and Sour Patch Kids (use it in a margarita!) White rum and Werther’s caramels (use it in hot buttered rum!) The only thing to keep in mind is that you’ll be adding sugar to the liquor during the infusion, which means you’ll want to skip any sweeteners when you mix up the drinks.
