Found this recipe for a candy corn flavored shot..
I havent found the ingredient licor43 yet but if someone does or has this and tries this let me know how it is.

1 part Licor 43® liqueur
1 part Orange Curacao liqueur
1 part cream

Carefully layer on top of each other to resemble the halloween candy.
First the Licor 43, then the orange curacao, then finally the cream.

It sounds good and I am on the lookout for the ingredients also..

Test tasting results

here are the ingredients

here is a pic of the shot

I didnt have my camera last night or I could have taken a 12 shooter pic,crap
Out of the 12 people - 1 did not want a shot, 1 thought it had kaluha in it so didn't want it.
but the other 10 all liked it. So I had 3 in total mine and the 2 extras haha.what the heck .
It has a sweet after taste which was good, no after burn from alcohol.
It does and doesn't taste like candy corn. Doesn't when you drink it and does kinda in the aftertaste.
next time I will use more of the licor43 than the orange curacao.
I would make this again

Got a question that's probably on the dumb side, but I'm not much of a drinker and when I do drink I pretty much stick to beer, rum or whiskey. I would like to try this but the licor43 is not easy to find (at least where I am) so my question is.. anybody got suggestions as to what might work as a substitute? I'm not looking for something else to give the candy corn flavor... according to Lilly, even the original didn't really taste much like candy corn, although if you know something else that will,cool. I'm looking more for something that will fit the yellow-orange-white color pattern and not taste nasty with the other ingredients.

hmmmmm. I think it all has to do with densities PB. According to drinknation.com:

"This chart lists the densities of various alchohols from lightest to heaviest. Actual values may vary according to brand. In general, the higher the proof number of the alcohol, the lighter it will be. Unknown values signify that the exact specific density value is unknown, however the liquor is still in approximately the right location in the chart.

Southern Comfort 0.97
Tuaca 0.98
Water 1.00
Green Chartreuse 1.01

thanks for list Sickie..
Ithink the liquor 43 is still good for what is is trying to do actually think the orange curacao is not right for this.
we had a hard time finding that 43 stuff also..
maybe the 43 orange soda and the cream would be better
or the 43 cream and a different orange alcohol more experiments
