This Cocktail is all my own creation. I’m a bit proud of it. My husband and I spent a very fun night or two getting the proportions correct for this heavenly sweet Fall cocktail.

We slightly disagree on the proper amount of the whisky. I was only going to add 1/2 oz. of the caramel whiskey. Hubby doubled it and stands by it.

You may adjust the alcohols a bit to suit yourself. Let us know your favorite combinations!
