After I posted my Thanksgiving menu, I got an email inbox surge with requests for recipes. The most requested? Definitely the caramel apple cocktail. Hmm. I wonder what that says about my readers?
I went ahead and practiced the technique pre-Thanksgiving. You know. For research purposes. It was strictly business.
I’m happy to report that the drink is quite tasty indeed. While it has a touch of sweetness, it’s not sickeningly so (like Reisling – blech!). You can certainly pick up the apple. In fact, it’s quite reminiscent of one of the real things. Enjoy.
Caramel Apple Cocktail
scant 1/2 c. apple cider
2 1/2 T. butterscotch schnapps
dash of cinnamon sugar
Mix apple cider and butterscotch schnapps and cinnamon sugar in an ice-filled martini shaker. Shake vigorously. Pour into a cinnamon-sugar rimmed low ball glass. Fill with sparkling wine (we used Prosecco). Garnish as desired. Please drink responsibly ;)
