Martini’s happen to be one of my drinks, but an apple martini never made it to the list, until recently.
Funny how you will end up having something that you thought you would never like…Yes, I am talking about Apple Martini’s.
The first time I sipped one I quickly crinkled my face and told my friend nay, this is not a drink for me, just to sour …you know that green apple sour taste…I will stick to Cosmo’s, thank you very much.
Fast forward to present day.
I meet my girlfriend one evening for drinks…I order a Cosmo she orders an Apple Martini…all of a sudden her drink just looked so inviting, and the Cosmo seemed to old hat, or old drink, so on the next round I order an Apple Martini. My taste buds were impressed, or matured, whatever happened I know now my new martini drink will be the apple martini.
I go home and do a Google search, I needed to know how to make them…Vodka was certainly a given but what gives it that apple flavor…Apple Schnapps was the answer. So for all those who are tired of the same old martini, if you are a martini lover, or maybe want to upgrade a little…here is the simple way to mix your next party drink.
- 2 oz vodka
- 1 oz green-apple schnapps, or sour apple pucker( which will give you a more sour flavor)
- Pour the ingredients into a cocktail shaker with ice cubes.
- Shake well.
- Strain into a chilled cocktail glass.
