This time of year I crave more sugar than usual. I want caramel drizzled in my lattes, I am drawn to all sorts of sweets, cakes, cookies. Usually I’m appeased by my nightly dose of dark chocolate; a dove usually does it. As the days get shorter, 5 o’clock rolls around quicker as well so here’s a little cocktail to enjoy this evening. or afternoon;) Have a great weekend!
Oh, and I just have to say that I finished a book last night as one of my fall goals:) I was reading Life of PI by Yann Martel for the last 2 years it seemsyep, they’re releasing the movie this month too which I’m pretty excited to see-I mean a tiger in a boat ya’ll!). One down, 2 to go!
Here’s what I used in my Spiced caramel apple martini:
1. 2 parts ginger liqueur (I used Stirrings brand $15) 2. 1-2 partsCaramel vodka(depends on your taste-this is a pretty sweet vodka); (I used Smirnoff’s $16) 3. 2 parts apple cider 4. splash of lemon
I say parts because I don’t measure ounces out or use a shot glass. I use the top to the martini shaker and it makes the perfect amount to fill up a standard martini glass.
Shake with plenty of ice and pour into your martini glass. Sip and enjoy this spicy sweet concoction!
