Hey friends! I have been experimenting with cocktails for Halloween, and I hit on a fresh and simple combination that I wanted to share with you today. It’s also an extremely flexible recipe, so you can serve it as Halloween shots, Halloween cocktails, a Halloween martini – you choose! I’m sharing this delicious and easy vodka-based caramel apple cocktail recipe today just in time for your weekend parties.
Recently, I was searching my own archives and happened upon an oldie-but-goodie, the Black Widow Martini. I will have a revamp to that recipe later this week, if you’re still thirsty after today’s Halloween drinks! Meanwhile, I hope you enjoy this fresh caramel apple cocktail:
- 2 oz. caramel flavored vodka
- 2 oz. Apple Pucker
- 2 oz. fresh apple cider
- Fill a rocks glass with ice, and add one part each of the three ingredients to a shaker tin. Shake well, and pour over ice. Garnish with an apple slice.
- To prepare this drink as a shot, reduce quantities to 1 oz. each. To serve as a martini, add ice to the shaker tin, shake well, and strain into a chilled martini glass.
I will be serving these up at a Halloween party I’m attending this weekend, and I think they will be a hit! They end up being around 17% alcohol content when served as a shot, so they can pack a punch. That means please be responsible, friends! You can lower the alcoholic content by shaking it with ice, or serving it on the rocks – as the ice melts a little, it will add some water to your drink. You can also just add more cider if you plan to serve it punch-style. It’s so versatile!
