What's Inside a Caramel Apple Martini?
The caramel apple martini is a delightful and sweet cocktail with various tasty twists. Some versions include the zing of sour apple pucker, while others incorporate the rich flavor of caramel-infused vodka. Our recipe combines the crispness of apple cider, the smoothness of vodka, and the sweetness of butterscotch schnapps. If you can, opt for apple cider instead of apple juice to capture that authentic, unsweetened apple essence. Vodka, with its neutral profile, lets the apple and butterscotch flavors shine. Alternatively, if you're in the mood for a warm, autumnal twist, you can use an equal measure of bourbon. To elevate the experience, we'll also prepare a sweet caramel rim and garnish it with a slice of apple.
- Caramel sauce (for rimming the glass)
- Ice (for shaking)
- 4 oz. apple cider
- 3 oz. vodka
- 2 oz. butterscotch schnapps
- Sliced apple (for garnish)
1. Begin by placing two martini glasses in the freezer for about 15 minutes to chill them.
2. To add an extra touch of sweetness and flair, carefully dip the rims of the chilled martini glasses in caramel sauce.
3. In a cocktail shaker filled halfway with ice, combine the apple cider, vodka, and butterscotch schnapps. Seal the shaker and shake it vigorously for about 30 seconds to create a perfectly chilled and blended mixture.
4. Once shaken to perfection, pour the mixture evenly into the caramel-rimmed martini glasses. If you'd like, garnish your martinis with a fresh slice of apple, adding a delightful finishing touch.
Enjoy this delightful caramel apple martini that combines the best of sweet, apple-infused flavors with a touch of butterscotch, all elegantly presented with a caramel-rimmed glass and apple garnish. It's a treat for the senses and a perfect addition to your holiday gatherings!
