Caramel Apple Vodka Martini – The best Autumn cocktail for this enchanting season

The cooler weather has arrived, so 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; this month meant the cold and snow were just around the corner. I never warmed up between October and April, one of the reasons I moved South as an adult.

In the Carolinas, October is the 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

Infused Apple & Cinnamon Vodka

  1. Cinnamon Apple Vodka
  2. Caramel Vodka
  3. Apple Cider Juice
  4. Caramel Syrup for garnish, optional

Substitutions

While in the liquor store, I found the Infuse Cinnamon Apple vodka. The Vodka has sliced apples and a cinnamon stick; the golden color and the fruit reminds me of moonshine, but the flavor of this Vodka makes a great-tasting martini.

Beware, in another liquor store, I found a ‘reddish color,’ not golden, Infuse Cinnamon Apple Vodka. I believe the recipe has changed. The reddish color of the Cinnamon Apple Vodka tastes like Cinnamon Schnapps or Red Hots candy, not what you want for this cocktail.

If you can’t find a plain apple Infused Vodka in your area, try Absolut Apple Vodka. Made with fresh apple juice, this Vodka is a great substitute.

Caramel Vodka

You’ll also need caramel-flavored Vodka. I’ve found Veil & Pinnacle Vodkas to be excellent, ‘flavored’ vodkas.

Calling all Caramel Lovers

Do you LOVE Caramel? Then, you won’t be disappointed with the Van Gogh Dutch Caramel Vodka. Replace the Veil Vodka with the Van Gogh Dutch Caramel, or go wild and use only 3 ounces of the Dutch Caramel with 2 ounces of the Apple Cider Juice. This drink can be served as a martini or in a tall glass with ice. Savor the fall flavors, yummy.

Stainless Steel Cocktail Shaker
Stainless Steel Cocktail Shaker

You can’t mix a great martini without a great shaker. I have at least a dozen shakers, but one favorite. The shaker doesn’t leak; you won’t have to hit the shaker against the sink to get the top off, and the cap will measure from 1/2 to 1.5 ounces with clearly marked labels. Measure the perfect amount every time. And it is dishwasher safe!

And remember 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.

If you like caramel syrup, drizzle your martini glass with the Caramel, then pour the strained shaker ingredients into the glass.
