Notes

Tips:

  • 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!

Variations:

  • 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.
