Apple Martini

That’s right, I’m putting away my man card for the week and doing the Apple Martini.  Certainly they must be tasty.

Okay, now that the intro sentence has scared away all the hardcore cocktail aficionados I can tell you the truth.  I’ve had an Apple Martini or seven in my time and I kinda like them.  Granted it’s in the same category of like where I lump Twinkies and Slim Jims, but still, there is fondness.  My biggest gripes have always been that they can be overly sweet at times and that they can taste rather artificial.  So, this week I’m going to see if I can’t ferret out an Apple Martini that isn’t overly sweet, isn’t artificial tasting and still packs a sufficient ‘tini punch.  I’ll start as I usually do with the Joy of Mixology recipe.

Apple Martini (Joy of Mixology)
2 oz Gin or Vodka
1 oz Green-Apple Schnapps
1) Stir and strain into a chilled cocktail glass

And finally to get you prepped and ready, J.D. on the Appletini.
