Homemade caramel!

With Father’s Day coming up this weekend, Tim and I started brainstorming a special drink. Tim thought it would be fun to feature a drink with caramel sauce in it, and I thought it would be fun to try making the caramel sauce myself. And also a little scary. So, I found a recipe with only four ingredients (simplicity is the best!) and jumped right in.

My first batch turned out great—it didn’t even turn into a gooey, burned, stuck-to-the-pan mess like I was a little afraid it would! Tim taste tested it, we tried it in some drinks, and decided the recipe was a success.

Since we’re featuring this caramel-y deliciousness at the Hunt Street Market tomorrow and at the Rodeo on Sunday, I made a second batch this afternoon, and I snapped some photos of the process! We can’t wait to serve this awesome drink, which we’re calling Daddy’s Day Delight! It combines our unique espresso, cold milk and caramel with ice and gets shaken until frothy.

TA-DA! Caramel!  Make sure to try it out in our new Daddy's Day Delight and after Father's Day we'll call it our Caramel Cocktail.

See you tomorrow!
