Apple Martini

Apple MartiniThe Apple Martini is a sweet and delicious cocktail with a vodka base. Many variations on the apple martini exist. The origin of this cocktail is the Appletini that was made with apple schnapps and vodka. A combination of sweet and sour, this cocktail has a subtle kick.

We have modernized it with calvados and fresh apple juice. A splash of lemon juice, and simple syrup highlight the green flavor profile of this once-popular drink.
