The Caramel Apple Martini, Bond Street Social( Jazmine Johnson / Baltimore Sun / October 22, 2013 )
When assistant general manager Nick Barbagli thought of a Halloween drink for us, he decided to aim for classic Halloween flavors: candy, apples and chocolate. He came up with the Caramel Apple Martini, a cocktail that will make your childhood Halloween memories come flooding back.
The pinkish color of the drink comes from cherries that are muddled by the ice when shaken, which adds color to the drink without including a strong cherry flavor. Topped with whipped cream and garnished with fresh Belgian milk chocolate, the drink looks like it stepped out of a youngster's trick-or-treat fantasy.
Not only does the drink look like candy, it tastes like it, too. A bright caramel flavor with an apple undertone combines with the frothy whipped cream and light sprinkle of smooth chocolate to create a cocktail that tastes just like its namesake. Shane Gerkin, Bond Street Social's general manager, explained that they, "don't want to completely mask the flavor of the spirit," so the first and last flavor you taste with this drink will be the apple vodka.
The Caramel Apple Martini is the perfect way to go bobbing for apples -- without getting wet.
