Salted Caramel Martini ala The Cocktail Vultures
Salted Caramel Martini
a la The Cocktail Vultures
There are a lot of recipes out there for Salted Caramel cocktails, as even foodies and TV chefs try to follow this culinary trend into the realm of adult beverages.
As our readers can easily discern, the Cocktail Vultures have no problem with over-complicating a thing when the results are delicious and the process is fun.
But in the case of our Salted Caramel Martini, we definitely feel that Less is More. A sprinkle of this, a hint of that, and a good product becomes a great cocktail.
To a shaker filled with ice, add:
1.5 ounces caramel vodka
(We recommend Van Gogh Dutch Caramel Vodka)
.5 ounce vanilla vodka
Shake vigorously. Run a fresh piece of lemon peel around the rim of a chilled cocktail glass, then sprinkle the glass lightly with some Kosher salt (fine or coarse).
Strain the cocktail into the glass, and float that peel on top.
Enjoy before dinner or after, with dessert or without.
Always drink responsibly; always drink well.
