There's no denying it. Fall is right around the corner. We're not in full-blown caramel apple season yet. BUT it's coming. And soon! Don't be sad, and don't let September hit you unprepared.
How should you get ready? First, you need to get excited. One way to do that is to make Caramel Apple S'mores. They capture the campfire spirit of July and August while making you think about all the apple things you want to make in September. They're also a "healthy"-ish approach to dessert.
The other way to get pumped: Caramel Apple Spritzers. The combination of green apple vodka, moscato, and Sprite will have you giddy for cozy sweaters and PSLs. Similar to Giggle Juice, you might forget you're drinking alcohol. It's a wonderful, and concerning, effect of moscato.
There's no caramel in the actual cocktail being poured. The caramel is underneath the cinnamon-sugar rim around the GREEN APPLE CUP! (Can you even?!) While the boozy combo would taste fine in a regular glass, it's so much more fun (and delish) to drink one out of a caramel apple.
