That’s the way the world works. Usually. But some people find that very limiting. Because what if you want both, at the same time, inside a glass.
Anyway, you see where this is going. The enterprising people at Blockheads in New York have devised a Candy Corn Margarita that, against all odds, looks and tastes a lot better than you’d think. For starters, the candy corn flavor comes from melting it down into a syrup, which supplies plenty of flavor and color without any of the weird, waxy texture. And also, you’re fortifying everything with a good slug of tequila and fresh citrus.
Dare we call this a classy candy corn margarita?
Well, let’s not go overboard.
