Caramelized Pear Martini

It’s not uncommon for a martini to contain fruity flavors, but it is unusual for a martini to be both fruity and a dessert drink. Not only is it fruity and sweet, it’s a little herbaceous due the bit of rosemary simple syrup it contains. This drink is perfect for the holidays.


  • 1 measure pear vodka
  • 1 measure salted caramel vodka
  • 1 1/2 measures pear nectar
  • 3/4 measure rosemary simple syrup
  • 1/2 measure lemon juice
  • Caramel syrup (garnish)


  • Combine equal parts sugar and water to a saucepan. Bring the mixture to a boil to dissolve sugar. Add a couple of sprigs of rosemary and let it steep in the sugar mixture while it cools. Then, remove sprigs and store the syrup in refrigerator
  • Either dip a martini glass in caramel syrup to rim it, or drizzle caramel syrup on the inside of the glass
  • Add the rest of the ingredients to a cocktail shaker with ice. Shake well
  • Strain into martini glass
  • Serve


Chocolate Velvet Martini

This drink is easy to make and contains only 3 ingredients, minus the garnish. The Creme de Cacao and caramel vodka pair nicely together, and the addition of half and half adds a creamy rich texture to the drink. And, it’s one of those rare dessert drinks that will please both men and women.


  • 2 oz. Smirnoff Kissed Caramel vodka
  • 1 oz. Creme de Cacao
  • 1 oz. Half and half

Caramel Vodka Root Beer Float Shooters

This is one of those awesome recipes with flavor combinations I never would have thought of. This whole drink is decadent, with caramel ice cream, caramel vodka, root beer, and whipped cream. The only problem with it is that the recipe makes shooters, which will be gone in no time and you’ll want more.


  • 2 oz. Edy’s Caramel Delight ice cream or similar
  • 1 oz. Caramel vodka
  • 3 oz. Root beer
  • 1 dollop whipped cream


  • Using a 1 oz. Scoop, put 2 leveled scoops of ice cream into a shooter glass

  • Top with a dollop of whipped cream
  • Serve


No matter what occasion you’re wanting to serve drinks at, you’ll find that these drinks will be a hit. They’re as good for solo indulgence and intimate evenings as they are for parties and get-togethers. Just make sure that you remember that there’s alcohol in them, as it’s easy to forget that the scrumptious drink you’re sipping on can have an intoxicating effect. Enjoy!
