It’s been a really hard week, between jet lag and me being sick, all I’ve wanted to do is sleep.

But, now that I’m feeling a whole lot better, I decided it was time for a cocktail.

With Autumn just around the corner, it means that my favorite flavors are coming back, to celebrate I decided to make an Autumnal based drink!

Salted Caramel Apple Martini.

I know, it sounds as good as it was.

When I was coming up with this recipe, I was faced with a lot of questions, such as vodka or gin?

Apple juice or apple flavored liquor?

Real caramel?

Martini glasses?

So many questions, so little time.

In the end, I went with Gin, apple juice, caramel, and of course martini glasses.  Also, shaken not stirred.
