Caramel Apple Cocktail

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
sparkling wine

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 ;)
