Vodka is a terrific mixer when you want other cocktail ingredients to sparkle, but it’s pretty tasteless on its own.

So if you’re not making a fancy martini or Moscow mule, you’ll want some booze with a bit of flair,

Enter: caramel vodka!

It’s boozy, clean, buttery, and sweet. And it doesn’t need a lot of help to shine.

But don’t take my word for it. Give these delicious caramel vodka drinks a try, and thank me later.

10 Easy Drinks with Caramel Vodka to Satisfy Your Sweet Tooth

1. Caramel Apple Cider Vodka Cocktail

Do you love caramel apples but don’t like risking your teeth? Then, this caramel apple cider cocktail is the solution.

It tastes just like a caramel apple, with a distinctly boozy aftertaste. 

But I’m not complaining! It’s fabulous and incredibly delicious. 

This cocktail features both regular and caramel vodka, plus apple cider, so it’s sweet and wonderfully spiced with a delicate richness.

Every sip goes down smoothly. 

Rim the glass with caramel sauce, then dip it in a blend of sugar and apple pie spice. Wow!

2. Salted Caramel Martini

I’m not sure if this is a martini or a milkshake, but either way, it’s incredible.

With just one sip, it’ll take your taste buds on a rollercoaster of deliciousness. After all, there’s no better combo than sweet and salty.

Better yet, you can make this tasty treat in less than five minutes.

Start with a martini glass and rim the edge with caramel sauce and salt. Then drizzle more sauce inside (this is a must!).

Next, pour RumChata and caramel vodka into a cocktail shaker and shake it up with plenty of ice.

Pour it into your prepared glasses and enjoy! 

Psst! You could totally turn this into a real milkshake by blending the above with caramel ice cream.    

3. Caramel Vodka Hot Chocolate

There’s nothing better than hot chocolate. Well, except maybe this spiked caramel version!

It’ll satisfy your sweet tooth and soothe your soul from the inside out. So it’s the perfect cocktail for your next holiday get-together.

This drunken cocoa is made with caramel vodka and homemade hot chocolate – fear not, the hot chocolate is easy to make and some of the best I’ve had. 

It’s so rich, so creamy, and like drunken molten chocolate. The caramel vodka is the best addition.

Serve with extra caramel and all your favorite cocoa accouterments.     

4. Warm Salted Caramel Vodka Cider

Apple cider in the fall is always a good idea. Warm or cold, it’s sweet and scrumptious.

But with the addition of caramel vodka? Mmm… now, it’s a real treat! 

This simple drink is made with your choice of apple cider and caramel vodka, plus cinnamon for a touch of spicy warmth that’ll tickle your taste buds.

It’s D-E-L-I-C-I-O-U-S.

5. Salted Caramel Mudslide

CAUTION: Watch out for this dangerously delicious mudslide!

A few glasses of this delectable drink, and you may be sliding around, too. Maybe that’s how it gets its name? 

Regardless, this mudslide is absolutely scrumptious. It’s made with Irish cream, coffee liqueur, and caramel vodka.

You’ll get notes of chocolate, cream, caramel, and coffee with every sip. It’s rich and creamy and STRONG. 

6. Snickertini

This delicious Snickertini is like liquid candy. So if Snickers are your favorite treat, this is the martini for you!

It’s chocolatey, nutty, creamy, and full of caramel goodness. And come on, that name is just too cute!

Grab a martini glass and drizzle it with caramel and chocolate sauce. Then freeze the glass for a few minutes. 

Add Irish cream, caramel vodka, chocolate liqueur, and Amaretto to a cocktail shaker with ice, then work those guns!

This thing really tastes like Snickers, and I guarantee you’ll want more than one.

7. Caramel Apple Sangria

Sangria is basically fruit salad, right? So, that means that this is kinda, sorta healthy…ish.

Okay, probably not. But this festive fall sangria is definitely delicious.

It features caramel and apple flavors with just a bit of grape goodness. You’ll love how that all plays with the apple cider, caramel vodka, and white wine.

And since sangria isn’t sangria without some fruit, add sliced apples to complete it! 

I’d also add a cinnamon stick or two, but that’s optional.

8. Apple Cider Martini

I know I’ve listed a few apple cider drinks already, and I’m sure you’re wondering how different this one could possibly be.

That’s fair, but I promise this one’s different. It’s subtle but impactful, and I know you’ll love it. 

Like the other cider drinks, this martini contains both apple cider and caramel vodka. So, we’re off to a delicious start.

But now for the deviation… Butterscotch Schnapps

The butterscotch adds this fantastic richness that’s hard to explain. This martini is smooth, buttery, and oh-so-sweet.  

Garnish with a cinnamon stick for a touch of warmth. 

9. Caramel Espresso Martini

Simple does not equate to boring. And this surprisingly simple martini proves it.

It tastes just like espresso, with a caramelly, alcoholic twist. And it all starts with – you guessed it – espresso! 

Make your fave, then let it cool completely. Add some ice, caramel vodka, and coffee liqueur, then shake it up until chilled.

This is the perfect drink to enjoy for brunch.

If you’re anything like me, I don’t recommend drinking one past 4 pm… unless it’s New Year’s Eve, that is! 

10. Caramel White Russian

In the deep darkness of winter, two things are guaranteed to warm your soul: coffee and alcohol. 

At least, that’s how I imagine those in the remotest parts of Siberia survive winter.

And it’s how I survive the tundra of Midwestern winters. So, needless to say, I’m a fan of White Russians.

I like this one even more because of the sweet, buttery addition of caramel. That sweetness does more than help you survive – it helps you THRIVE. 

Okay, maybe I’m being a bit dramatic, but this drink IS super tasty. And incredibly easy to make too. 

It features cream, Kahlua, and caramel vodka. That’s it. Serve over ice, and enjoy!
