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!
