Salted Caramel White Russian

Salted Caramel White Russian | Toast the holidays with this classic white russian with a salted caramel twist - visit The Sweetest Occasion for the recipe!

With Thanksgiving just a couple of days away and the holiday season taking on a life of it’s own, I wanted to whip up a special little cocktail so you can sip something really yummy this holiday weekend. So today we’re talking about this little gem, which I’ve dubbed the salted caramel white russian! It’s basically a classic white russian with a twist inspired by my love for all things salted caramel at the moment.

As is my way, this is an easy one to whip up and it’s perfect for making just one or two or for a whole crowd. If we had a big enough house I would absolutely invite all of you over and serve you one of these. They’re just plain ‘ol yummy!

The key to making this drink shine is definitely the caramel swirled around the inside of the glass and along the rim. Make sure you go with a coarse sea salt and remember that just a little pinch will do. This isn’t a margarita, after all, you just want a little bit of that yummy salt flavor to balance out all the sweetness. And that’s it, friends! So easy and crazy delicious. (You can ask B’s sister. She’s my official cocktail taste tester and she loved this one!)
