This Caramel Apple Pie Martini is basically a dessert in a glass. Complete with a graham cracker crumb rim, this cocktail it’s like drinking a slice of fresh-baked apple pie with a big ol’ scoop of vanilla ice cream.
Making cocktails in the fall has become one of my favorite things. Then again, to be honest, making any recipe in the fall is my favorite things. I just love all the flavors of the season.
This Caramel Apple Pie Martini is no exception. I was inspired to make this cocktail after making my Caramel Apple Martini. I love that recipe so much that I thought it could be equally delicious to make a creamy version. Spoiler alert: I was right!
Caramel Apple Pie Martini:
After working diligently on making my entire home photograph-ready for this year’s Fall Home Tour (Thank you SO much for all of your amazingly sweet comments. They are sitting in a warm spot in my heart.), I thought we could all use a martini.
Let me talk you through this a little bit, and then we will get to the recipe.
First, this is much more than a martini. It’s actually dessert in a glass (with alcohol of course). It’s like drinking a slice of fresh-baked apple pie with a big ol’ scoop of vanilla ice cream.
How to Make a Caramel Apple Pie Martini:
To start off, I rimmed the glass in caramel and then in crushed graham crackers. It adds such wonderful flavor and an unexpected crunch.
The other ingredients, while not bar staples, are totally awesome and I highly recommend adding them to your collection. Kissed Caramel Vodka is one of my favorites for this time of year. I especially love it in my aforementioned Caramel Apple Cider Martini.
Also, the Velvet Cinn Horchata is pure bliss. It brings great spice to creamy cocktails. In addition, I used Apple Pie Vodka. If you can’t find it, an apple vodka will work just as nicely.
And that’s it. With a little half & half, some ice, and a quick shake, you have a delicious martini fit for fall!

Can you make the caramel apple pie martini in advance and several at one time would love to make this for my daughters wedding this October
I’m not sure. The cream may cause some separation issues. You might be able to make a few at once. If you do batch the recipe, I still recommend shaking each one with ice before serving.
I found several recipes for making apple pie vodka. Some are sweet and some are not. Do you recall if the apple pie vodka you used was sweet?
Served at my Bunco gathering last night! Omg, delicious!! A new favorite. My only issue was trying to find apple pie vodka and didn’t want to use just the apple so I substituted Apple Pie liquor.
Yay!! So glad to hear that! I’ll have to check to see if they still make the Apple Pie Vodka. I made this a few years ago, so maybe it’s been discontinued.
Nexg time you’re in a ‘fall’ mood….try a chocolate espresso martini…..so divine!
This is a super yummy drink, Michael! Looks simple enough to make. I’ve recently concocted a hot spiked apple cider that has become an addiction in my little circle of people. Check it out! http://www.themediterraneandish.com/hot-spiked-apple-cider-recipe/. Would love to hear what you think.
This cocktail looks super tasty and decadent – perfect for the upcoming holidays! Yum 🙂
That sounds absolutely amazing. Here is one of my favorites for fall:
1 cup of hot cider
toss in a shot of caramel flavored vodka
Top with whipped cream and drizzle with caramel sauce.
Yum! I have to give that a try!
This looks so good. I’m definitely going to try this out because I love apple drinks. Amazing.
I am mad for graham crackers. What a great idea for a fall drink!
If this isn’t perfect for fall, I don’t know what is! This is going to be on my must-try list! XO, Sarah
