Take a few minutes before preparing this delightful cocktail to properly wash and clean the entire work surface that you will be using. Also, thoroughly wash your hands, glasses and other utensils that you will be using to put this recipe together. It is a good idea to make it a habit of keeping your work area clean whenever you are preparing some food or beverages.
First of all place a martini glass in refrigerator for approximately 10 minutes until it is properly chilled. Be sure to place the glass somewhere in the refrigerator where it will not fall when you open and close the refrigerator door.
Remove the martini glass after 10 minutes and coat its inner wall with a spiral of caramel. Remember to take your time when doing this as with a little patience you will not have any trouble putting the caramel on the inside.
Now, place your martini glass back into the refrigerator until you prepare the Caramel Martini Cocktail.
Take a cocktail shaker and place 1 cup of ice cubes in it. Remember it is entirely up to you as to how many ice cubes you use as too many will make your cocktail watery.
Place 1/4 cup of vanilla flavoured vodka, 2 tablespoons of butterscotch schnapps, 1 tablespoon of iced tea in the cocktail glass. If you want the cocktail to be light then you can always reduce the amount of vodka that you use. This will not have a huge impact on the overall taste of this cocktail.
Cover the lid of the cocktail shaker properly and shake it well until a proper coating of frost forms on the outside. You want a nice smooth texture to the mixture so be sure to check the consistency while shaking.
Now, take out the pre-garnished martini glass from refrigerator and gradually pour the drink into it.
Top your drink with caramel ice cream and serve. Your friends and family will definitely love the smooth flavour of this delicious cocktail.
