Seasonal Sip: Caramel Apple Cocktail
Nothing says autumn like a sweet caramel apple. This cocktail is a grown-up take on a childhood fall favorite and can be served warm or chilled.
- 2 ounces apple juice
- 2 ounces caramel vodka
- 1 ounce butterscotch liqueur
- caramel sauce
- turbinado sugar
- apple slices for garnish
Yield: 1 cocktail
1: Place caramel sauce in a flat-bottomed, shallow bowl. Dip the rim of a cocktail glass in caramel sauce and then in turbinado sugar. Set aside.
2: Place apple juice, caramel vodka, and butterscotch liqueur in a cocktail shaker filled 2/3 with ice. Shake until jet cold (about 20 seconds). Strain the cocktail into the cocktail glass. Garnish with a fresh apple slice on the side of the glass and serve (Image 1). Note: For a warm cocktail: Heat the apple juice to a simmer. Place the caramel vodka and butterscotch liqueur in the prepared glass. Pour the hot apple juice in the glass and garnish with a fresh apple slice to serve.
