Candy Clouds Martini
This drink uber sexy, it's easy to make and you'll definitely impress your guests with the hardened caramel lacing your glass. Adding the caramel to my chilled glass made my new recipe worth the trouble! The drink's creaminess was quickly achieved by using Talenti Tahitian Vanilla bean gelato instead of ice cream.
Instead of sweetened condensed milk, generous shots of Bailey's Caramel flavored Irish Cream took it over the top! Maybe an unsuspecting choice, but I knew the combination of a gourmet gelato like theirs, with Bailey's caramel liqueur, would yield a perfect and beautiful drink. I omitted vodka, but if you must have it, I'm confident you'll become a bonafide mixologist. Make it your new sexy drink, 'cuz it's just that amazing.
- 1 cup Talenti Tahitian Vanilla Bean gelato, softened
- 1/4 cup milk
- 3 shots (1 1/14 ea.) Bailey's caramel Irish cream
- 2 shots (1 1/4 ea.) vodka (optional)
- 1/2 cup sugar
In martini shaker, add ice cream, milk, Irish Cream and ice. Shake well. In small non-stick sauce pan, bring sugar to boil, stirring constantly with wooden spoon until sugar has liquified and is caramel in color. Remove from heat and continue stirring until caramel starts to thicken a little. Using tablespoon, drizzle caramel all around the inside of chilled martini glass.
