Toast the season with candy corn-infused vodka

Tricking and treating may be all about the kids, but this grownup use for candy corn will give adults yet another reason to raid the little ones' goodie bags. This martini-style cocktail uses vodka infused with candy corn, which needs to be made at least 3 hours ahead.
