Cocktail Hour // Salted Caramel White Russian

It wouldn’t be the holiday season without a little bit of indulgence, am I right?  That’s what we thought when we infused a little Grey Goose vodka with soft, buttery caramels and a pinch of salt last week.  We took a few sips here and marveled at our adult beverage masterpiece, but decided that we couldn’t just stop there.  Sipping on vodka isn’t the best way to keep up with the holiday schedule after all.  That’s when we decided to create this naughty little number we’re calling the Salted Caramel White Russian.  Don’t ask questions people.  The new year with all of her healthy resolutions in tow will be here before we know it.  Until then, let’s get to mixing…
