  • Triple Sec ~ Brightens the flavor with just a touch of sweet.
  • Caramel Syrup ~ Use your favorite drink syrup like Ghiradelli or make your own with caramel sauce.
  • Heavy Cream ~ I loved the creamy taste the splash of cream adds to this cocktail. A little out of the box for a martini but trust me, it’s good!
  • Apple Slices for Garnish ~ We made a little fan out of the apple slices, get as fancy or as simple as you like.

Best Tools for the Home Bartender:

  • These Martini glasses are great. For this recipe we used some vintage glasses that we’ve had for ages.
  • Love this copper Bar Set – it’s the one I use for every cocktail. 
  • Microplane Twist & Zest is perfect for juicing and making citrus garnishes for my favorite cocktails.
  • I don’t have an ice maker so this  Ice Crusher is great. I’m adding this Countertop Ice Maker to my wish list. It makes the nugget ice, just like Sonic ice.
  • These party picks are great for garnishes.
