Effen Salted Caramel Cocktail

Say Yes to This Salted Caramel Cocktail

Effen Vodka recently sent us its latest flavor, Salted Caramel ($30), and if it weren't for the accompanying marshmallows (my ultimate weakness) and other cocktail accoutrements, the bottle may have been tossed aside. I mean, how many silly flavored vodkas can one possibly try? However reluctant, I took one whiff of the wheat vodka and the buttery, caramelized scent made me feel giddy from the impending sugar high. Take a look at the cocktail recipe.

Despite smelling so sweet, the cocktail below is balanced, with just enough creaminess and savoriness. I'd even give it a heavy splash of simple syrup to make the salted caramel flavor shine. The name "rocky road" is a misnomer as this smooth sailing cocktail is like drinking a spiked milkshake. In fact, why not throw some ice in a blender and turn this into an adult shake? We'd approve. However, if you're on a time crunch, try the vodka on the rocks with a splash of ginger ale. I think it's safe to say we consider this particular flavored vodka to hold up to its liquid luxury tagline.
