Sarah’s Appletini

Apples are our ingredient of the season. Check out Kate’s german apple cake right here.

I’m a fairly new martini drinker, but I can see these appletinis showing up on a regular basis around here.  They are full of fresh juice (& alcohol!) and they taste like Autumn!! Really, these apple martinis are fall flavored.  This recipe makes enough for two martinis so grab a pal or drink both. If your plan is the latter then have a great afternoon at home 😉



Ingredients for two:

  • 3 oz. vodka
  • 2 oz. fresh apple juice
  • 1 oz. sour apple pucker
  • 1 oz. fresh lemon juice + one lemon wedge
  • splash of simple syrup
  • handful of ice cubes
  • cinnamon and sugar to garnish


  • Rinse your martini glasses and put them in the freezer to chill.
  • Mix together a couple teaspoons of cinnamon and sugar (enough to rim your glasses) on a small saucer.
  • Throw a handful of ice cubes into your martini shaker (or a jar with a lid) along with the vodka, apple juice, sour apple pucker, lemon juice and simple syrup.
  • Shake, shake, shake.
  • Take a tiny sip and add more simple syrup if necessary.
  • Rub the lemon wedge along the rim of each martini glass.
  • Lightly place the glass upside down on the sugar saucer.  Coat the rim with a thin layer of the mixture.
