Creamy Caramel Martini

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!

I gave 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
  • caramel
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?

  1. Kissed is one of my absolute favorites! ok ok I know I have alot of favorites...but what can I say. But this vodka is wonderful and so is the cocktail minus the real caramel. Makes it too sweet for me. We are home in Washington in the cool weather but so far not alot of rain! YaY! Drinks are definately needed to warm up. oh by the way...I had my olives on the side with this one but did dip one or two. hehe
