Caramel Apple Martini

My all time favorite fall cocktail is a caramel apple martini. Now, I try to stay away from them (for the most part) since they are loaded with sugar and fake apple junk. Last weekend I actually had one while out with friends and though delicious, I was NOT feeling good the next day from it.

This year I decided to make my own! Yes, yes, yes I did.  Why did this not happen sooner is the real question.

I’ve been really into putting my all-purpose caramel on all the things lately.

So, some fresh apple goodness, a little vodka because hey, it’s almost the weekend, and some homemade CLEAN caramel? Count me in.

I love after a few minutes of sitting that the caramel becomes even more immersed into the cocktail. I swirl it around and boom, even more caramel flavor!
