Your rating: None Average: 5 (1 vote)
The Apple Martini is one of the new breed of fruit 'Martini's' which began with the now-famous Cosmopolitan. Though frequently made with a variety of violent-green liqueurs, an Apple Martini can be a sophisticated and highly enjoyable cocktail.
What you'll need: 
Boston shaker
Mixing glass
Strainer
Cubed ice
Vodka
Apple Schnapps
Apple purée
Fresh lime
Cinnamon (optional)
Apple wedges to garnish
1: 
Fill a Martini glass with crushed ice and water before placing it in the fridge.
2: 
Into an ice-filled mixing glass pour 50ml/1.5oz of premium-quality vodka, 25ml/.75oz of apple schnapps, a small squirt of fresh apple purée, cinnamon and the juice of half a fresh lime.
3: 
Seal tightly with the Boston tin before shaking hard until the shaker tin frosts over.
4: 
Discard the ice and water from the Martini glass. Double strain the drink into the glass to ensure its clarity and viscosity.
5: 
Garnish with the apple wedges and serve!
Conclusion: 
When crafted properly the Apple Martini is a refreshing, well-balanced and moreish drink for any occasion.
Tips: 
Choose the best vodka you can afford. Finlandia, Wyborowa and Skyy are good options.
Ensure that both the lime juice and apple purée are as fresh as possible.
Warnings: 
Cinnamon isn't to everyone's taste so check others' preferences when making Apple Martinis.
