A PERFECT NEW FALL MARTINI

DIRTY & COSMO, BE SCARED!

Despite the Indian summer that has been bedazzling of late, Fall does officially fall into our soon to-be-bundled-up laps tomorrow. And so, for today’s Diary Drink Of The Week, it’s all about a martini that will pump up the comfort with equal parts sweetness and spice. Now doesn’t that have a nice ring to it?! Bring it Fall!

 

SALTED CARAMEL APPLE MARTINI

Ingredients:

  • 2 ounces caramel infused vodka
  • 3 ounces apple cider
  • Salted caramel dessert topping of choice
  • Kosher salt

 

How-to:

  • Begin the adventure in sweet & spice by filling each martini glass with cold water and ice cubes.
  • Spoon a sufficient dollop of caramel onto a plate, for purposes of rimming the glass (ahem, glasses, why drink fabulousness alone?!).
  • Add the same amount of kosher salt to a second plate.
  • Next, toss the water from each glass before drizzling caramel down the inside.
  • Coat rims with caramel and dip lightly in kosher salt.
  • Add ice, cider and vodka to every martini’s bestie; the cocktail shaker.
  • Pull a fifties style maneuver and shake shake, shake!

Finally, pour the cocktail perfection into each glass, knowing that each sip will make kissing summer goodbye increasingly more bearable! 😉
