How to choose a good vodka without breaking the bank?

Vodka is made up of two ingredients: Wheat and Water. The first two ingredients on the vodka bottle should always be those two, that’s it. Vodka aficionados will tell you that the kind of wheat (of the winter variety) matters as well as the water source (is it filtered with charcoal, does it go through reverse osmosis). It’s really up to the drinker although I prefer a pure water source. Also, I drink my vodka in a cocktail so I’m not too picky. What you’re looking for in a good vodka and the trait that matters the most is that top shelf vodka will not give you a wicked hangover. You do not have to spend hundreds of dollars to experience that though. Some brands that were recommended when I was doing research were (in no particular order): Prairie Vodka (it comes from the same distillery as UV Vodka here in MN), Smirnoff Vodka No. 21 (good old Smirnoff), Suntory Haku Vodka and Reyka.

Basically I’ve made candy corn vodka shots! Or if we want to get extra boogie, I’ll say to my guests, “Here, try some candy corn infused vodka I whipped a week ago.” They’ll be impressed because I actually took the time to make candy corn infused vodka.

I took the leftover candy corn that was at the bottom of my jar and placed it in a mold I had for gummy bears because I can’t stand wasting anything. I think it’s the old cloth diaper mama in me, I must never waste a thing! The gelatin that’s needed is still there so really all I’m doing is molding a boozy candy corn into a gummy bear and then freezing it.

There are so many things you can infuse with UV Vodka. I’ve tried sweet and sour gummy worms; those need to sit for a few weeks but once everything is done the flavor is nice with a great sour kick afterwards. You could use Skittles too. Basically, if the candy is any kind of gummy or sucker, you can most likely infuse it with UV Vodka. Give it a try and let me know what you come up with!

Ingredients

  • UV Vodka Unflavored
  • 1 cup Candy Corn

Instructions

  1. Take Mason Jar and make sure that it’s clean, if you use jars as often as I do, you never know what might be hiding in there!

  2. Pour 1 cup of candy corn into the Mason Jar.

  3. Take UV Vodka and fill the Mason Jar up to the 24 oz mark.

  4. Seal the jar tightly with the lid and place in a cool, dark place.

  5. Let the candy corn and UV vodka soak for at least 3 days, being sure to shake at least once daily.

  6. When the three (or more) days are up, take your cheese cloth and place it over a bowl; slowly pour the vodka mixture into the bowl, allowing the cheese cloth to catch any leftover residue.

  7. Now you’re ready to enjoy your Witches’ Juice as a responsible adult over the age of 21!

Recipe Notes

If you don’t have access to cheese cloth use a fine strainer that’ll catch some of the gelatin-like candy corn stuff.

Three days of infusion time is enough, I found that five days produced a sweeter shot that toned down both flavors making them really compliment each other.
