From Red & Brown's Wedding Cocktails. One of our favorite parts of traveling is getting to find new drinks in other parts of the country. Red stumbled upon a variation of this during a weekend in upstate New York and fell in love. It's easy to be skeptical at first- really? Salted-Caramel vodka? But with one sip, you're hooked. It's like the adult Shirley Temple (a favorite of Red's when she was a little girl). We switched it up with using one of our favorite sodas, the southern institution Cheerwine, for a drink that goes down easy and is great with some fried chicken and mac & cheese.
