IT'S NATIONAL CARAMEL APPLE DAY - Have yours in a martini glass!


October 21st is
NATIONAL CARAMEL APPLE DAY
Celebrate with this Caramel Apple Martini


An interesting little tidbit about caramel apples is that if the caramel is dipped in peanuts or another ingredient it's is more properly referred to as a Taffy Apple!  No matter what you call them, caramel dipped apples are classic fall treats and once were the prize of a Trick or Treat outing.  If you came home with a "taffy" apple or caramel apple you figured it was a good Halloween haul that year!

Here the classic flavors of a caramel apple come together in a martini glass for some nostalgic flavors for happy hour.  The sweet, tartness of a Granny Smith or Fuji apple comes in the form of the apple pucker and the caramel gets shaken in with the Butterscotch schnapps mixing with the vodka and a pretty drizzle of caramel sauce swirling around the glass bowl,  creating that classic caramel apple taste.  Garnish with a caramel apple slice and you're back in childhood savoring this great blend of fall flavors.

Sip Your Caramel Apple Martini in Good Health!

There's an old adage that "an apple a day keeps the doctor away" and, in point of fact, apples might do just that because:
  • Apples contain high concentrations of pectin which helps to stabilize blood sugar levels.
  • Apples stimulate the flow of saliva which aids in promoting good digestion.
  • Eating a crisp apple helps to clean the teeth and stimulate gum tissue.
  • Apples are rich in flavonoids, beta-carotene and vitamins, B, C and contain important minerals such as boron, calcium, phosphorus, potassium and silicon.
So, enjoy your Caramel Apple Martini and add a couple of extra caramel apples slices to the rim to keep the doctor away!

HAPPY NATIONAL CARAMEL APPLE DAY.
