Caramel Haze Martini

ingredients

Sadly, summer is over, and it’s time to pack away the flip flops and margaritas. The end of summer is usually a period of mourning in my house, until I realize just how much I love my favorite, broken-in jeans and Uggs. Pair those with a blazing fire and a nice, belly warming cocktail, and I’m a happy girl again.

While I am absolutely in love with summer, I secretly have a crush on fall. Seriously, the weather is perfect, the wardrobe is comforting, and the great foods are bountiful. It is as if fall is a flavor in itself, and if I had to pick a liqueur that was the perfect embodiment of the taste of fall, I would choose Rum Chata. If you haven’t had it, you are missing out. Plus, it’s really fun to say. It’s a creamy bath of sweet, spicy, exotic rum, the perfect pair for fall flavors. Now, imagine this exotic goodness, paired with hazelnut and salted caramel. Are you imagining this? Your next drink, needs to be this martini!
