Caramel Apple Macchiato

Going through my recipe database of hot drinks, coupled with the all-too-typical 2:00 afternoon lull, it has become increasingly prevalent that our office needs an espresso machine. After taking imagined espresso machine for a test spin, I’ve already picked out the first hot cocktail I’ll be mixing up. It’s the Caramel Apple Macchiato, which uses Hiram Walker’s seasonally apropos Caramel Apple Liqueur. Here’s the recipe:

Caramel Apple Macchiato:

  • 3/4 part Hiram Walker Caramel Apple Liqueur
  • Fill with hot espresso

Serve ingredients in an espresso cup and top with frothed milk.

This is just one of many examples of drinks that can be created and submitted by cocktail enthusiasts in the current cocktail contest for The Quest. In this segment of The Quest, the theme is “Hot Drinks” and entries can include any range of hot beverages (cider, coffee, espresso, hot chocolate) in a cocktail with Hiram Walker liqueurs, brandies and schnapps. You may have a chance to win one of two top prizes for your most outstanding of cocktails – Visa gift cards valued at up to $500. You can learn more and submit your drink by December 31st by visiting The Quest on the web or on Facebook.

In the interim, it’s time for me to make another cup o’ Joe. Go, go, caffeine rush!

Cheers!
SJ
