As promised here is the delicious Witches Candy Corn brew recipe. Kid safe and fun for everyone. Get on your brooms and lets go for a ride and some fun!
First off depending on the event you plan on throwing will determine how many you make. The great thing about this recipe is that you pretty much make it by the glass so easy peasy! Lets start with the Black sugar rimmed glasses then the brew and last the cute little witches broom added for flair.
First deciding how many glasses is important. The best and most fun thing to do for the brew is to use mason jars or mason jars with handles as you want to be able to see your brew. The foam on top is very special!
So after decided on what clear glasses you will use lets move on to the black sugar you will rim your glasses with. Now just a heads up we are going to make our own because people out there are charging an arm and a leg for it and guess what? Its easy to make!
Lets make a trip to the Craft store and while there you will pick up the following items in the baking aisle: Sanding Sugar and black powdered food coloring. You want to use the powdered kind because its less messy and its ready to go right away. No drying time. You will also need a plastic baggie that zip seals.
Now just a tip on the Black food coloring. Trying to mix powdered food colors like red, green etc... to make black will often produce a dark gray color. Pre-made black food coloring is the best choice for this. So buy yours early before they run out. The closer to Halloween the shorter on the supplies.
Next on to the Candy Corn brew. The brew is actually made of a couple of layers. Here are the ingredients:
2 Liters of Ginger ale
1 Liter Mango Nectar (you can get this in cans in the Hispanic section of grocery or in the health section in the refrigerated drink area).
1 Bottle Grenadine
1 Long Eyedropper
1 Cup Heavy Whipping Cream
2 Tbsp Of Sugar
2 Tsp of unflavored gelatin (careful on this one in case you are serving a vegan)
Enough Long Cinnamon sticks to supply each glass with one
Black paper cupcake liners
Corn Syrup bowl from dipping sugar above
Lets go ahead and make our brooms so they have time to set up. Taking a black cup cake liner make a cut into it to the center. Insert your cinnamon stick, leaving about a half inch, into the back side of the liner. Dipping your finger in the corn-syrup bowl paste some around the 1/2" end of the cinnamon stick to "glue" down your cup cake liner. Use the photo above for reference. Pinch and twist your liner around the end of the cinnamon stick to achieve a triangular appearance. Use syrup as needed to paste your ends to meet. Then taking your scissor cut fringe on the end of the cup cake liner to emulate broom bristles. Set your completed brooms aside to dry.
The foam on top of the brew is as follows. Whip together 1/2 cup of whipping cream with sugar and gelatin. Whip until it starts to get fluffy then add the other half of the whipping cream. Whip until it is foamy and stiff/fluffy. Set aside.
Now the brew. Fill your mason jars with 1/3 ginger ale. Slowly layer in about 1/5 mango juice. The idea is to not let it mix completely with the ginger ale. Next take an eyedropper with grenadine and insert it into the center all the way to the bottom of the drink and squeeze out. You should see layers like the photo above. Take the foam you set aside and spoon some onto the top of your brew enough to cover the top with a layer. Insert your broom! Walla a tasty Witches Candy Corn Brew. You can even add a little candy corn on top of the foam if you like but not necessary.
