Caramel Apple Martini Recipe
Vodka Martinis or Gin Martinis
If you are new to drinking martinis, then let me give you the low down. There is a serious martini debate going on when it comes to what makes a true martini.
Vodka martini or gin martini which one is the legit martini? Well, technically they both are!
Gin martinis are usually a much dryer drink. Usually served in a martini glass with dry vermouth. You can liven a gin martini recipe up with olives or a twist of citrus.
Sometimes people even go crazy and throw a dash of bitters in there! If you love things dry, and dirty, then you would love a gin martini.
Vodka martini recipes on the other hand give you a smoother flavor. If you want a homemade cocktail recipe that is smooth like a babies bottom, then you are gonna want to down a vodka martini.
I’ll admit, I’m a vodka martini gal all the way. Better yet, my favorite are dessert martini recipes because they are smooth and sweet (kinda like some men in my life)

It’s like a caramel apple at the local fair with a big kick 😉 Brace your tastebuds, and remember there is alcohol in it because it’s a really smooth drink and could get you in a lot of trouble.

How to Make a Carmal Apple Martini: Commonly Asked Questions
Can I use vodka or gin? In this recipe, you can use either. To make it super smooth, this is best as a vodka martini recipe.
Can I eliminate the apple juice? If you want a slightly dry martini recipe, then go for it. Removing the apple juice will make this martini recipe not quite as sweet. Though the apple pucker will still give you that fun apple taste!
Can I rim the glass with something else? Abso-fricking-lutely! That’s the fun thing about when you learn how to make vodka martinis. You can customize them however you want. Line the rim with sugar! Drip the caramel and top it with salt for a salted caramel apple martini.
What is a good substitute for Apple Pucker? Can’t find apple pucker? You can substitute Calvados or any apple brandy or cordial for Apple Schnapps or Apple Pucker. It won’t be quite as tangy, but it will make your homemade apple martini recipe still damn delicious.
