Chill ingredients prior to use. Layer each ingredient into a chilled cocktail glass one on top of each other to create look of candy corn. Layer ingredients by slowly pouring liquids over the back of a bar spoon in the order given.

The Stirrings Tangerini Mixer is a little difficult to come by so there are a few options for the Trick-or-Tini cocktail:

Apparently Ocean Spray makes a no sugar added Citrus Tangerine Orange juice. There is also a Noble brand tangerine juice that came up in search. Either of those might work as a substitution. You could also try a combination of Orange Juice with splash of Pineapple Juice or Orange Juice with mix of syrup from a can of tangerine fruit.
