Creamy Caramel Martini
4 shots out of 5
I may just be one of the happiest people I know today! First off it's Friday (that speaks for itself). Second, I went to the doctor today to find out if they 4 week long soar throat I've had is strep or not.......turns out it's not and all I have is an irritated airway! Great news! I think for those two reasons alone, I deserve a cocktail.....and so do you!
tonight's OK, totally this afternoon's cocktail 4 shots out of 5. The 3:1 ratio of vodka to schnapps kind of scared me, but I went through with it anyways. I have this bottle of Kissed Caramel Vodka and I need to try different cocktails with it so I went to the Smirnoff site and found today's here. Glad I did too. I think the caramel at the bottom of this glass adds to it's carameleyness (yes another "Totally Jen made up word), but doesn't over power it. I think this would be a cocktail that I would drink one.......two at the most of (but would probably regret asking for the 2nd half way through). If you enjoy caramel, I think you'll enjoy this cocktail!
Here is the recipe for a Creamy Caramel Martini:
- 1 1/2 oz kissed caramel vodka
- 1/2 oz butterscotch schnapps
In a martini glass, squeeze your liquid caramel into the bottom of your glass (as much as you'd like). In a shaker, add ice and your vodka and butterscotch schnapps. Shake and strain your cocktail into your martini glass.

Here's to a nice warm Friday! The sun is out and I have a cocktail in my hand, what could be better?
