Homemade Caramel Vodka

Caramel vodka is regularly served as shots here in Benidorm, but if you are missing it at home, try this simply homemade caramel vodka recipe.


You will need a bottle of vodka (the cheap stuff is fine, but Smirnoff is tastier)

a packet of Werther’s Original (approx. 135g) and a sterilised Mason Jar.

Coffee filters

Homemade Caramel Vodka


Simply mix the bottle vodka with a packet of Werther’s Original sweets in a mason jar.  Cut the sweets up for a quicker and stronger infusion.

Shake every few hours over 2 to 3 days until the sweets have dissolved and a frothy head has formed. If you want a smoother vodka you can choose to filter the vodka using a coffee filter at this point.

*Please note it will not look like the caramel vodka you can find in the shops which is clear, this will have a creamy look to it, but tastes just as delicious*

For Salted Caramel Vodka just add a  tiny bit of salt to taste

voila! Toffee/caramel Vodka..

When Sealed, store in a cool dark place for up to three months, shake well before serving. 

Or for a creamy version

Homemade Caramel Vodka

Chuck a bag of Werther's Originals in a bowl, and pour a bottle of vodka over the top.

Stick it in the fridge for three days, shaking frequently, strain, add 250ml cream, and whisk.

Pour back into the empty vodka bottle, and serve in shot glasses.


Wash them in boiling water, dry them, and put them in the oven at 100C for 10 minutes.

The lids of the jars you can put in boiling water for 10 minutes not in the oven

Smirnoff Vodka, Did you Know?

Pyotr Smirnov,  was responsible for what has come to be known as the world’s #1 vodka. Born as a serf in Russia, Smirnov lived out a true rags-to-riches story by becoming one of Russia’s richest men by the time of his death in 1998

Pyotr Smirnov began making vodka in 1964, using only the finest ingredients to make his brand of vodka the most prestigious. To market his product, he became one of the first people to advertise in newspaper ads and even made charitable donations to the clergy to keep them from preaching anti-vodka sermons.

Smirnoff survived through periods of political unrest and factory strikes in Russia, and later was introduced to Europe in the 1920s and America shortly after that. It is now a best selling brand on both sides of the Atlantic, being sold in over 130 countries.
