Candy Corn Martini

Ahh fall is almost upon us and like most upcoming seasons, I start getting excited for that season’s food too early, hence making candy corn dishes for Labor Day weekend!!!! This cocktail was found in the latest Food Network magazine and I decided to make it for my cousin visiting as he loves candy corn too. These were a great twist on a martini and a fun way to celebrate fall! I found them to be an interesting taste but good overall. Definitely worth trying once.

ENJOY!

    What would be a suitable substitute for the egg white in this recipe?? I am uncomfortable with the raw egg white.
