There is a new sweet vodka on the market that is a little more interesting than most. This one if from Effen Vodka and is the brand's first attempt at the candied vodka craze. They did exactly what I would expect from them and have given us a great flavor in Salted Caramel.
What I really enjoy about Effen Salted Caramel is that it is multidimensional. It is sweet and buttery, but it also has a savory aspect to it that is actually quite good and it is one of my new favorites among these sweet vodkas. If you want to give it a chance, there are a few options I can recommend. One is to simply enjoy it chilled or with ginger ale and another is to mix it in either a Black or White Russian. If you're looking for one of those super sweet cocktails that many of us cannot pass up, try it in the Salted Caramel Rocky Road, it is a delicious as it sounds.
