Salted caramel. Apple cider. Martini. Do I really need to say more than those words?! But really, this salted caramel apple cider martini combines the caramel and apple flavors that we have all loved since childhood into an amazing drink, perfect for winter get togethers!
I’m not sure I’ve ever been more excited to share a drink recipe. This is my last post or the week, so I wanted to go out with a bang. I had as much fun coming up with this recipe for Christmas Sweets Week, as I had drinking it. I mean…caramel apple + martini = perfection, as it is – but this one has Torani salted caramel syrup, apple cider, and they are in the most adorable and fun martini glasses from Joyjolt. Seriously – I am in love with my new martini glasses!!
Who doesn’t love a caramel apple? Nobody that I know. And when you kick it up a notch with salted caramel, and throw vodka into the mix AND you can drink it?? Hey girl, heyyy. This is definitely a holiday drink to share with your girls. You know what I’m talking about. Girls night in, laughing until you can’t breathe, reminiscing about your younger days…or last weekend, if your still a 20-something.
And, if you really want to show off your entertaining and presentation skills, just adding some caramel sauce around the rim, an apple slice and a cinnamon stick will elevate the look to pro-status!
They’ll be almost too pretty to drink. Almost.
When all is said and done, you’ll have a beautiful and delicious drink to enjoy for the holidays and no doubt some fun memories to add to your holiday memory bank. Salted Caramel Apple Cider Martini, for the win.
