Instead of serving a traditional cake or pie for dessert, why not mix a quick Mexican flan in a glass? Creamy rich vanilla custard base with caramel vodka, pinch of cinnamon and essence of orange, it’s dessert and an after dinner drink in one. Have a flan-tastic evening!

CARAMELLY MEXICAN FLAN MARTINIS
2 martini glasses
3 Tblsp caramel sauce or caramel ice cream topping, at room temperature for drizzling
2 toffee candy bars, chilled are best, crushed or blended in a food processor
1 large scoop good quality frozen vanilla custard
3 shots caramel vodka
1 1/2 shots whole milk
splash of fresh squeezed orange juice
pinch of ground cinnamon
4 ice cubes
fresh orange wedge for rimming the glass
thin sliced orange peel for garnish
Using a spoon, drizzle the caramel sauce inside the martini glasses, in a circular motion, and place in the refrigerator to chill. Reserve some caramel for drizzling as garnish.
Pour the crushed candy bars onto a flat plate and pat flat with your fingers.
Liquify in a blender, the custard, caramel vodka, milk, splash of orange, cinnamon and ice cubes. Blend until smooth, about 1 minute.
Take the glasses out of the fridge, run an orange wedge around the rims and dip into the crushed toffee to coat. Fill with the caramelly flan mixture. Drizzle with more caramel sauce and garnish with a thin slice of orange peel.
