This was very good, though very intense. The vodka is really strong and I would have preferred the berry to be more dominant even with having used extra black berries in the maceration. I enjoyed taking bites of my blackberry skewer and sipping at the same time. I didn't have caramel vodka so I slighty warmed up some caramel dip and macerated the berries with that instead of sugar, I added a sugared caramel rim to the glass for more caramel flavor, it also helped to take the edge off the vodka. Even though the caramel made the drink cloudy compared to the original I still thought it was a pretty drink. Made for ZWT 8 by one of The Wild Bunch.
