You lovelies know that at the end of a long
hour week I love a good cocktail. For me it’s a festive way to end the week and kick off the weekend. This week I decided to play with the sweeter side of things. I was planning on making this drink for a friend of mine who was supposed to come over, but sadly got a call that the dreaded pink-eye has been going around and she didn’t want to expose us to it. After having lived through that battle a few years ago, I gladly accepted her rain check for another night. However, that doesn’t mean this bad boy will go to waste, ha. If you like sweeter cocktails, this Kissed Caramel Cran Martini is worth trying. Personally, if it’s not a margarita, then I tend to gravitate towards vodka cocktails and I am really digging this caramel Smirnoff flavor.
Since it’s more of a sweet treat, I decided to pair my Kissed Caramel Cran Martini with some dark chocolate sea salt caramels I picked up at Trader Joe’s. With a cold beverage and chocolate in hand, I think I have found the easiest desert to “make”. This would be perfect to serve friends after dinner and would eliminate an entire course of food to worry about. Win! Check out the recipe below and let me know other ways you think I should mix up this yummy vodka!
