There’s no time like the fall to enjoy the taste of this Caramel Apple Vodka Martini. Autumn reminds me of days past and, as kids, how excited my brother and I would get at the thought that Halloween and Thanksgiving were near.
Growing up in the Northeast, I hated October; it meant that the cold and snow was just around the corner. I don’t think I ever warmed up between October and April: One of the reasons I moved South as an adult.
In the Carolinas, October is a perfect month. The Carolina blue skies are incredible and a perfect backdrop when the leaves change from green to a stunning display of vibrant colors.

Ingredients you’ll need to make the Caramel Apple Vodka Martini
- Cinnamon Apple Vodka
- Caramel Vodka
- Apple Cider Juice
- Caramel Syrup for garnish, optional
I found the Infuse Cinnamon Apple vodka in the liquor store while browsing. The Vodka has sliced apples and a cinnamon stick; it reminded me of moonshine. This Vodka makes a great-tasting martini. If you can’t find an Infused Vodka in your area, you can use Absolut Apple Vodka. Made with fresh apple juice, this vodka is a great substitute.
You’ll also need caramel-flavored Vodka. I’ve found Veil & Pinacle Vodkas to be excellent, ‘flavored’ vodkas.

Next, you can’t make a great martini without a great shaker. I have at least a dozen shakers, but this one is my favorite. The shaker doesn’t leak, and the cap is a measuring cup measuring from 1/2 to 1.5 ounces. Dishwasher safe, you can’t go wrong with this shaker.
And don’t forget the chilled martini glass. Nothing is worse than a martini in a warm glass. Check out these two martini glasses I highly recommend. Joy Jolt set of 6 martini glasses in multi-colors and Crafthouse by Fortessa, set of 4 martini glasses. They are both dishwasher-safe. Joy Jolt is a short martini glass, great for stacking in the freezer, and the Crafthouse by Fortessa is tall and elegant. Still, finding a good spot to lay it down in the freezer is harder.
