So since posting my Salted Caramel White Russian recipe I’ve noticed a lot of people searching for caramel and salted caramel vodka drinks. Whether you are using a homemade recipe, Smirnoff Kissed Caramel, or Pinnacle Salted Caramel Vodka, these recipes will go perfectly. Caramel and salted caramel vodka are just the perfect drink starters for Fall, there are so many delicious things you can make.

For starters, here is my Salted Caramel White Russian recipe if you haven’t seen that one, yet. Then, here are a handful of other great recipes to get you all set with your Caramel vodkas. Some of these use regular caramel vodka, and not a salted variety, but I think they could both be used in any of these recipes for a really great drink.

Where to buy?
Did you know, you can also make your own caramel or salted caramel vodka? All you need is your favorite vodka, caramels, and sea salt. For a full tutorial check out Mix That Drink’s Salted Caramel Vodka recipe.
Then, if you are looking for Salted Caramel or Caramel Vodka in stores, here are a few brands to look out for-
My personal preference is the Smirnoff for regular caramel cocktails, or the Pinnacle for salted caramel.
For a fun twist, whip up some of these caramel ice cubes to use in your cocktails to keep them from getting too diluted. You can even find some fun ice cube trays to make these in- I recommend any that are silicone, as those will be easier to pop out when frozen.
Then, when it comes to garnishing caramel drinks- I like to stick to good old fashioned caramel syrup. Ghirardelli makes a delicious caramel syrup. So does Torani, and then the easiest to get your hands on- Smuckers caramel sundae syrup is amazing! Of course, a little coarse sea salt is perfect for those salted caramel cocktails, as well.
When it comes to Fall, caramel is one of my favorite flavors. There are so many salted caramel vodka drinks to choose from- from muslides to caramel apple flavored cocktails- anything you can imagine you can create with some caramel sauce and one of these caramel vodkas. Spiked apple cider, boozy ice cream treats, and more! Stay tuned for even more caramel based cocktails on the blog this season.
