Caramel concoction...


So, my first foray into blogging events is Darcy O'Neil's Mixology Monday. I'm so excited to actually have a legitimate excuse to spend time on the net searching for coffee based drinks?!

My submission....

the Caramel Martini.....

What could be finer? Espresso, butterscotch schnapps, vodka and Irish cream are combined to make this scrumptious drink.

1 oz. brewed espresso
1 oz butterscotch schnapps
1 oz Bailey's Irish cream
.5 oz vanilla vodka

Add all ingredients to shaker with ice, shake, strain and serve. Decorate rim of glass with white sugar and dust with cinamon powder.

I've tasted this little gem at several restaurants but have yet to make it myself. It makes an excellent "liquid" dessert for those of us wanting something unique and light. I love this drink! Try it...you won't be disappointed....
