Thirsty Thursday: Salted Caramel Martini

Happy Thanksgiving, Scottsdale Living readers! I hope you are enjoying this precious time spent with family and friends. This Thirsty Thursday is being brought to you by the friendly faces at Sandbar. So Friday night, when you’ve had too much family togetherness and you need to get away, you can head to one of their three Valley locations to try Sandbar’s new Salted Caramel Martini for $9.

Salted caramel anything has been my thing since last winter when I was first introduced to it, so I cannot wait to mix this drink up for the holidays. If you can’t wait ’til the weekend to try the Salted Caramel Martini at Sandbar, then attempt to make it on your own with the directions below. Share photos of your creation or enjoying this tasty drink this weekend on Instagram at @ScottsdaleLiving and make sure you #ThirstyThursday!
