This drink is called an Appletini sometimes referred to us an Apple martini. Now there is all kinds of tini’s, there is rasp martini’s or lemon tini’s, there is everything tini. It is really kind of a take off on the original Martini although it really does not taste anything like a Martini.
So, what we are going to do is we are to make this drink straight up which means it is going to go on to the stem cocktail glass just like this and I am chilling the cocktail glass. Sometimes, customers will also call for the drink on the rocks. But I am going to stir this because in mixing, any liqueurs that are clear that do not use any fruit juice are stirred. So, our recipe calls for two ounces of our vodka and you could use any type of vodka. But we are really kind of particular, we are really kind of fancy people. So, I am going to use absolute vodka which comes from sweet juice Sweden this is referred to as a premium vodka which means that it just cost more. And I am going to use two ounces of our vodka, you could use any type.
Then our recipe calls for an apple, sweet apple flavored liqueur that is a little bit on a sour side. So, if you have ever taken a bite of a green apple, this is what this tastes like. This happens to be apple packer but also, there is brands that call it apple schnapps. If it has the word apple in it, you are okay.
Now, we are going to put a half ounce of our apple, our sour apple flavored a liqueur in there. And then what we are going to do is we are going to stir this all up, just like so. All right, we want to mix our ingredients thoroughly together. We are going to damp our ice from our cocktail glass and then what we are going to do is we are going to strain our drink right in like so.
Now, I have seen recipes for the Appletini or the Apple Martini add a little apple juice. The reason why we do not do that is because most commercial bars do not bother fooling around with apple juice. So they are going to use the apple flavored liqueur, apple schnapps, apple packer whatever they happen to have on hand and then what they are going to use is a cherry because it is a sweet drink. Let us just hang it right on there. So here we have kind of a semi sweet sour apple flavored drink.
So if you like apple, sour apple, green apple, you like vodka that is a very interesting drink, very popular today Appletini or Apple Martini, here we go.
