Candy Corn Drink

 

“No.” Suzen was pretty certain.

“Yes.” I wanted to do this. How can you not blog a recipe with honey-flavored whipped cream.

“NO.”

“Please?”

“^&%^$#*&^^%&^*&((, No, Brian.” Suzen was definitive. I was not to blog this drink recipe. But she’s gone now, so I am.

Having a Halloween party? Need a “different” beverage? Then this is one for you. In honor of candy corns, I am happy to suggest this beverage for you. No, I did not create it. It’s from Better Homes and Gardens. Go Figure.
