Let the holiday cocktails begin!


Your favorite shopping outlets are already gearing up for the holidays. So why not do the same with your cocktails? Sure, the Caramel Apple-tini isn’t a new innovation, but it’s been a fave for years, and it’s a good start to drinking your way through the holidays, just like grandma did.

Over at Texas de Brazil, they’re adding that caramel-y concoction and more to their holiday cocktail menu for you to try when you’ve had enough shopping around Town Square. Some items that piqued our interest? A Pumpkin Pie Martini, the Turkey-tini, the Poinsettia, Candy Cane Martini and Mistletoe Delights. While you’ll have to swing by the Brazilian-style steakhouse to sample those unusual beverages for yourself, they shared the recipe for the Carmel Apple-tini, so you can attempt to impress guests at your next get-together.

Caramel Apple-Tini


1 oz Bailey's Caramel Cream

1/2 oz Van Gogh Appel Vodka

1 teaspoon caramel

Line the interior of a martini glass with thin swirls of caramel syrup. In a separate mixing glass, add Bailey's, Appel Vodka and ice cubes. Shake vigorously and strain into martini glass. Garnish with the slice of apple.
