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.

Delicious fall flavor in every sip.




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!

Caramel Apple Upside Down Honey Cake

Good morning! I hope you had a fantastic Labor Day weekend and are now getting back into the swing of things! I spent the weekend with my family in New Hampshire and man was it beautiful.  I love that both mine and Mike’s family are close enough to go away as one big family together. I feel lucky for sure. Jax also LOVES New Hampshire. Swimming in the lake, massive sticks everywhere. The pup was in heaven!


Now, let’s get to today’s recipe. Rosh Hashanah is right around the corner, and this spin on a honey cake is just perfection. Whether you celebrate or not, this is the ultimate Fall cake all season long!
