Salted Caramel Martini

We just adore gilding the lily around here. Our Salted Caramel Martini was so popular, we thought we’d go back to the lab and see what else we could do with it. It’s still a simple pour with only two ingredients. However, after tasting Brinley Gold Shipwrecked Vanilla Rum (http://m.brinleygoldshipwreck.com/#!The%20Rum|gallery_page), we decided to swap it for the vanilla vodka — a wonderful way to enrich the flavors in what is definitely a dessert cocktail. We also kicked up the garnish a bit by rimming the glass with a mixture of brown sugar and Kosher salt — really delivers the sweet/salty we all want in a salted caramel.

To a shaker filled with ice, add:

1.5 ounces caramel vodka
(We recommend http://vangoghvodka.com/van-gogh-our-vodkas/dutch-caramel-flavored-vodka/)
.5 ounce vanilla rum

Prepare chilled glass by running a fresh piece of lemon peel around the rim; roll the rim in the brown sugar and salt mixture. Sprinkle the glass lightly with some chunky Kosher salt.

Shake vigorously. Strain into the prepared glass.

Always drink responsibly; always drink well.
