It’s that time of year when the night air starts to get a little chilly. You can tell fall is just around the corner – and that means that Halloween can’t be far behind. Food & Wine magazine’s FWX blog featured a number of very special vodka martinis including our very own Candy Cane version. The Kennebunk Inn’s Candy Cane Cocktail is a seasonal Halloween treat made with carrot orange ice, house made orange simple syrup, vanilla vodka, lime juice, and more. It’s topped off with homemade vanilla corn cotton candy. Not only is the drink a beverage of beauty, but it contains two vegetables. So, it’s basically a health drink.
