Caramel Cream Martini


Caramel Cream Martini
It's always nice when a food or drink takes you back to your youth.  I loved these candies as a kid, and recently discovered that they still "hit the spot".  Made by the Goetze's Candy company, these sweet treats have been around since 1917.  The soft chewy caramel, with it's cream filling in the center, makes the perfect garnish as we pay tribute to this confectionary classic with our featured cocktail... Caramel Cream Martini.  Cheers!
2 oz. Half & Half
Whipped Cream
Smuckers Caramel Topping
2 Caramel Creams (Ollie's carries them)
Combine the spirits and Half & Half into an ice filled cocktail shaker.  Cover and shake well.  Drizzle some of the Caramel Topping along the inside of a chilled Martini glass.  Strain your drink into the glass.  Add some Whipped Cream, and drizzle some more Caramel over the top.  Skewer (I used wooded skewers from the grocery store) two Caramel Creams and set them on the inside of the glass to garnish (and devour).  If you ever need a great dessert drink, this is it...the delicious, Caramel Cream Martini...!!!  Enjoy!
