* 21 & Up Only beyond this point
If you remember, earlier this month, I told you that October is National Apple Month AND National Caramel Month! There are many great ways to celebrate these two delicious foods on their own. The options are endless, and I hope that you celebrate all month long in as many ways as possible! On October 21st though, you need to celebrate these two delicious items together, No Excuses, because October 21 is National Caramel Apple Day! Even when it is NOT National Caramel Apple Day, you still to make time to sip and enjoy this delicious cocktail!!
Apples and Caramel are a match made in heaven. From a young age, Apples covered in Caramel and other goodies bring a smile to people’s faces. Young and Old love their healthy apples to be smothered in delicious sweetness. The satisfying sweet and slightly tart combination just is perfect – and this is coming from a chocolate lover!
In recent years there have been tons of new flavored spirits on the market – Smirnoff and Pinnacle are leading the pack with their flavored vodkas. By taking a delicious Caramel Vodka and mixing it together with Fresh Apple Cider, you will be able to raise a glass and toast National Caramel Apple Day!
I raise my glass to you – let’s celebrate!
- 2 oz Smirnoff Caramel (OR Pinnacle Salted Caramel OR even Buttershots)
- 3 oz Fresh Apple Cider
- Handful of Ice Cubes
- Caramel to rim the Glass (optional, but highly recommended)
- Course Salt to rim the Glass (optional, but highly recommended)
- Lightly dunk the top of your glass into the caramel and then the salt.
- Pour your liquids into a cocktail shaker with the ice
- Shake for a few seconds, then pour into your glass

Another way to celebrate (and this one is kid-friendly) National Caramel Apple Day is to make some Caramel Apple Shakes!
