This Salted Caramel Appletini takes the classic tastes of a beloved childhood, fall favorite and elevates them with a little Caramel Vodka and Apple Liqueur. Sinfully delicious, the perfect cocktail for your next Halloween Party, Friendsgiving, Christmas Dinner, or just a quiet night at home!
Chilled Glasses Are The Best Glasses
Start by chilling your martini glass. If you don’t have the luxury of lots of freezer room, you can easily chill your glasses by filling them with ice water while you prepare your cocktail. Just be sure to dump the ice water out before you pour your cocktail in!
Now, I’m a caramel fanatic, so one thing I like to do with this drink is rim the glass with more caramel! I’m making a quick Macadamia Nut Sugar to use on the rim as well! You can also rim it with brown sugar, cinnamon & sugar, or turbinado sugar.
Macadamia Nut Sugar
To make the Macadamia Nut Sugar take a 1/2 a cup of Macadamia Nuts and blend them in the food processor with 3 Tbsp brown sugar. This will keep for a few weeks if stored properly.
After your glass is sufficiently chilled, you can rim your glass. On one plate put a few tablespoons of your caramel sauce. On a separate plate place some of your Macadamia Nut Sugar. Twirling your glass evenly, dip just the rim of it in to the caramel. Then, immediately in to the Macadamia Nut Sugar. Set it to the side.
Mixing the Salted Caramel Appletini
Okay, This next part is easy! In a tall glass or cocktail shaker filled with ice, add the Salted Caramel Vodka, Apple Vodka, Lemon Juice, Simple Syrup, and Apple Liqueur. Shake or stir well. Strain into your chilled martini glass.
Typically if you order an Appletini out, it is garnished with a maraschino cherry. With this cocktail though I’m going with a simple thin apple slice for garnish.
The Macadamias, Salted Caramel, and Apple-y goodness will happily fill any fall cravings you might be having!
Happy Sipping 😉
