Course: cocktail
Cuisine: American
Servings: 1


  • cocktail shaker
  • Jigger


  • 1 ½ oz. vodka
  • 1 oz. sour apple schnapps
  • ½ oz. simple syrup
  • ¼ oz. lemon juice
  • 1 granny smith apple optional garnish


  • Combine the vodka, schnapps, simple syrup and lemon juice in a cocktail shaker.
  • Add ice.
  • Shake the cocktail for about 10 seconds.
  • Strain into a chilled martini glass and garnish with apple slices if desired.



  • This cocktail is perfect for parties! You can mix up the cocktail in a pitcher, refrigerate and then serve! Since you won't be shaking the cocktail, add ½ oz of water per serving so the drink is properly balanced!
  • Depending upon the brand of schnapps you use you may not need any simple syrup. Before making the cocktail, taste the schnapps and adjust the simple syrup to your taste!


  • Caramel Apple Martini - use caramel flavored vodka and substitute demerara syrup for the simple syrup.
  • Dry Apple Martini - substitute calvados for the apple schnapps.
  • Cinnamon Apple Martini - Substitute cinnamon syrup for the simple syrup.
  • Apple Cider Martini - Substitute apple schnapps for the sour apple schnapps, add 1 oz. of apple cider and omit the simple syrup.
