Halloween Hallowdega Happy Happy Hour

Wow try saying that title 3 times fast! HAPPY HALLOWDEGA! Nothing screams Halloween better than a candy apple. So in honor of today's Happy Hour, we are bringing you the Candy Apple Martini along with a recipe for a cinnamon candy apple. So let's eat, drink and be scary while following along with Happy Hour here.

Candy Apple Martini
1 oz Vodka (try Van Goghs Wild Appel Vodka, its the best)
1/2 oz butterscotch schnapps
1 oz apple pucker
1 oz cranberry juice

Pour all ingredients into a cocktail shaker half-filled with ice cubes. Shake firmly and pour into a cocktail glass. Serve.

And for the kiddies or kids at heart.....from our friends at the Food Network: Paula Deens Red Cinnamon Candy Apple
1 cup water
1/2 cup corn syrup
2 cups sugar
1 tsp cinnamon flavoring
1 tsp red coloring
1 dozen wooden craft sticks
1 dozen small firm apples

Boil water, syrup, and sugar together until a brown caramel color is reached (at about 250 degrees F on a candy thermometer). Remove from the heat and add cinnamon and red coloring. Cool slightly. Meanwhile force a stick into the core of each apple. Dip the apples 1 at a time into the heavy red syrup, drain well, and place on a buttered baking sheet to cool.
