The Nutty Caramel Martini Is The BEST Autumn Cocktail

A Caramel Martini is just what the doctor prescribed for the parents in 2020 to deal with the chaos of back to school this year. Okay, maybe doctors aren’t actually prescribing this as a way to cope with how education is being handled this year, but do you really think they would recommend against a deliciously tasty martini like this? I think not!

Back To School

It’s back to school time and you know what that means – it’s crazy time for the first couple of weeks. Okay, maybe more like the first 4 weeks of getting used to the new routines, schedules, appointments, sports, homework, and chillier weather! However, isn’t it the best time of year? I love it! It’s like starting a brand new year months before the new year starts. Almost like you get 2 new years to start over, each year.

And let’s face it, in 2020, we need a serious do-over asap! So let’s cheers to the new school year this year and make some yummy cocktails! If that sounds like a plan to you, follow me. I have really made the most of Quarantine 2020 and turned into a very skilled mixologist. Read about my most favorite new martini, the caramel martini. It’s perfect for the autumn season which then leads into the holiday season of Thanksgiving, Christmas, and yes, New Year’s!

Caramel Vodka

With so many flavored vodkas these days, mixing up yummy drinks couldn’t be easier. On the other hand, with so many choices of vodka flavors, liqueurs, and mixes, it can make things complicated when you want to find that PERFECT drink. You can live vicariously through my experience and try out the cocktails I mix up. They are tried and true. This way you can whip up a delicious martini without having to spend unnecessary money and time, experimenting with different concoctions.

Mixing It Up

Just a few key ingredients is all that stands between you and the nutty caramel martini which I consider the best autumn cocktail this year. Don’t forget to garnish the glass. That added caramel flavor with the tiny almond bites are too good to skip!

Here is everything you need to make the perfect caramel martini:

Ingredients

Instructions

Garnishing The Rim

  • Pour crushed almonds onto a small plate.
  • Pour caramel syrup onto a small plate.
  • Dip the rim of the (must have) martini glass in the caramel sauce, all the way around so it covers the entire glass.
  • Repeating the caramel rimming process, dip the rim into the crushed almonds, making sure to cover the entire rim.

Making The Martini

  • Fill cocktail shaker 2/3 with ice.
  • Measure all drink ingredients and add to cocktail shaker.
  • Shake well.
  • Pour into garnished martini glass.

Perfect Fall Drink

When you think of autumn tastes, you probably think about apples and pumpkins, right? You might also think about other fruits like cranberries, figs, and pears. All are great tasting flavors that pair well with cooler weather and savory dishes. Another flavor that might not immediately come to mind is caramel. Now, you’re thinking, mmm caramel, a caramel apple sounds good right now. I knew you would think that! Let’s face it, caramel is a great taste any time of the year. That rich tasting flavor that is sugary-sweet, yum! It is the perfect taste for cooler weather.
