Making Salted Caramel Frozen Concoctions for Party Season
Every holiday season, salted caramel flavors grace coffee shop and dessert menus, the indulgent treats providing that magic balance of sweet and salty. You can incorporate salted caramel into frozen concoctions made with your Margaritaville® Bahamas™ Frozen Concoction Maker®, too, which has a large capacity for effortlessly mixing pitcherfuls of delicious frozen drinks at parties. Smooth and refined, salted caramel has a sophisticated yet fun quality that's perfect for festive holiday get-togethers.
Bring a little glitz, a little glam and a whole lot of delicious flavor to your holiday parties this year with these ideas for salted caramel frozen concoctions:
Pair Salted Caramel with Mezcal
Mezcal has a unique flavor that's more smoky and intense than that of its relative, tequila, and it makes a harmonious and unexpected match for salted caramel. For a refined and modern frozen concoction that will impress at a holiday celebration, mix 3 ounces mezcal, 1 ounce salted liqueur, 1 1/2 tablespoons sea salt and just a spritz of lime juice in your Margaritaville® Bahamas™ Frozen Concoction Maker®. It's grounded and earthy with an elegant smoky taste that's sure to be a hit.
Mix Up White Russians
White Russians are a winter classic. With the drink's sophisticated sweetness, the addition of salted caramel adds an elegant twist that makes for a special drink to serve at holiday get-togethers. All you have to do is mix 3 ounces vodka, 1 ounce coffee liqueur, 2 ounces milk, 2 tablespoons caramel sauce and 1 tablespoon sea salt in your Margaritaville® Bahamas™ Frozen Concoction Maker®. Serve guests and enjoy this delicious frozen concoction that instantly transports you to a winter wonderland.
Bring on the Bacon
Bacon in your frozen concoctions? You bet! Salted caramel and bacon are a match made in heaven - and when mixed into frozen hot cocoa concoctions, this treat will steal the show. First, take a quarter of a pound of cooked bacon and crumble it. Add it to your Margaritaville® Bahamas™ Frozen Concoction Maker® along with 2 ounces of caramel liqueur, 1 tablespoon of sea salt, 1 ounce of chocolate sauce, 6 ounces hot cocoa and 3 ounces of bourbon. Mix, and then pour into glasses. Top with whipped cream, sea salt, bacon bits and pecans and enjoy.
Couple It with Coconut
Salted caramel mixed with sweet coconut is a fun new take on tropical frozen concoctions this season. Salted caramel effortlessly blends into coconut flavor, so create a party-perfect salted caramel colada that's the stuff of holiday dreams! This frozen treat is easy to make: Mix 4 ounces coconut cream, 3 ounces white rum, 2 ounces milk, 2 ounces caramel liqueur, 2 tablespoons sea salt and a splash of pineapple juice in your Margaritaville® Bahamas™ Frozen Concoction Maker®. Pour into coconut shells for extra fun and whimsy, then top with whipped cream and serve.
Remember to enjoy your frozen concoctions responsibly and follow all drinking laws.
