Caramel Cocktail 3 Ways

Sweet Addiction

My latest addiction is drinking a caramel cocktail made with caramel sauce lovingly prepared by Carla from Yarra Valley Cookies. She shared the secret of her delicious caramel sauce with me which was using fresh Jersey milk then partiently cooking it down for 5 hours.

The result is magnificant and a strong endorsement for buying fresh local ingredients handled the traditional way by artisans who know their craft and who make top shelf premium produts.

Craft Cocktails

Mixing classic and craft cocktails is part of “my jam” so I was keen to try her caramel sauce and create a luscious caramel cocktail as a weekend treat. I had so much fun I eneded up mixing three sweet and creamy concoctions which are perfect for those with a sweet tooth or anyone looking to add a touch of luxury to their glass.

Apple Caramel Drinks

There is a caramel apple drink for everyone. The caramel cocktail and mocktail recipes below combine the tart flavours of apple, spice notes of chocola syrup with the rich flavors of caramel resulting in a smooth and velvety drink that is both sweet and savory. The addition of a caramel sugar rim on the glass enhances the presentation of these drinks.
