We had been wanting to make our own caramel vodka for a while now, so we did. We made two recipes, one that is plain caramel, and this one with salt. It’s amazing just how easy this recipe is!
Is there a Caramel Flavored Vodka?
Homemade Salted Caramel Vodka
A great bottle of Salted Caramel Vodka is available in the stores, and it super tasty. But this homemade version is closer to Bailey’s in consistency to the liqueur and flavor profile.
This Salted Caramel Vodka is sweet with a touch of salty, as well as a bit of a bite from the vodka and all of it combined together with the creaminess of a liqueur. We make this recipe so easy which is just infused vodka with chewy caramel candies and a touch of salt.
As we noticed with the Caramel vodka, there was a white frothy bit at the top of the infusion. So we strained that out before adding the salt and storing the Salted Caramel Vodka.
Then we added a pinch of salt, an eighth of a teaspoon. If it isn’t salty enough you can always add more later, or even add it to cocktails you make! You can also rim cocktail glasses with salt if it isn’t enough.
We hope you try this recipe out, as well as the regular Caramel Vodka.
