Salted Caramel Apple Vodka

8.10.17


If you're looking for a homemade autumn beverage to serve on the rocks, as a shot, or in a killer holiday sangria- look no further! This Salted Caramel Apple Vodka has an intense salted caramel flavour, a little bit of sweetness, with a hint of apple. This also makes a great host gift for the lovely host in your life this Thanksgiving.

I hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving!
Ingredients:
  • 2 cups soft caramels
  • 2 apples (I used McIntosh)
  • 26 ounces of vodka
  • 1/2 tsp. sea salt
  • large pitcher
  • mesh strainer
  • glass bottles or mason jars (I bought mine from the dollar store)
  • coffee filters (optional)*
  • lace burlap (optional)
  • ribbon/string and tags (optional)

Step One:

Chop up your apples- don't worry about perfection, that isn't important here. Then peel the wrappers off all of the caramels (such a pain, I know!).

Step Two:

Add the apples, caramels, and vodka to your pitcher. Mix everything around and then place in the fridge. 

Step Three:

Let the caramels completely dissolve (mine took about 4 days), but make sure to stir everything around in the pitcher once a day. 

Step Four:

Once the caramels have completely dissolved, you will notice a foam has formed on top of the liquid.  Pour the vodka through your mesh strainer, into a measuring cup or bowl. If you want to get rid of more of the foam, line the mesh strainer with a coffee filter and filter the vodka through that. If you only take the first step (no coffee filter), your vodka will separate once it sits. 
Step Five:

After you've strained all of the foam out, add the salt and stir. Then add the vodka to your glass bottles and store in the fridge. Serve on the rocks, in a shot, or in a autumn sangria!

Tip: If you want to achieve the same rustic look I created with my vodka bottles, here are the instructions:
  1. Cut your burlap to the appropriate size for your bottle top.
  2. Wrap the burlap tightly around the bottle neck and tie with your ribbon or string.
  3. Add your tag on with the ribbon/string. 

Enjoy! xo
