We all know that there are all sorts of martinis that explore the various tastes of fruits and sweets, and the same can be said for vodka, and companies have become successful by cleverly infusing all sorts of interesting flavors.

It was only a matter of time that salted caramel cocktails arise, since it is a very sought-after flavor in all sorts of foods and desserts. Now that it has, of course the salted caramel rocky road has come to satisfy your sweet tooth! Here’s how you make it.

  • 1 splash of simple syrup
  • Salted caramel marshmallows
  • Milk chocolate shavings

  2. Strain into a chilled cocktail glass.
  3. Garnish with salted caramel marshmallows and milk chocolate shavings.

Equipment:

  • Cocktail shaker

The “rocky road” is originally a dessert that is a type of biscuit made of both chocolate and marshmallows, and originates from Australia. After the 1929 Great Depression, it became a very popular ice cream flavor and was meant to be something to cherish amidst all of the economic devastation, as “rocky road” refers to challenges or obstacles in one’s way. One interesting scientific fact about salted caramel was uncovered in a 2017 study, where it was discovered that one of the reasons for salted caramel’s popularity: all of its main ingredients have a profound effect on the reward systems in the brain, which leads to “hedonic escalation”. In other words, there is literally a scientific case for the flavor being addictive, which may explain why it has spread to the cocktail world after rising to prominence in the dessert world. Regardless, the drink is perfect for a dessert cocktail that’s a little different, rather than the more usual choices, such as the more popular chocolatine or red velvet cake martini.
