Happy New Year! (Apple Martini)

I don`t think that Apple Martini Cocktail is interesting cocktail. But this cocktail is great concoction for some party, for example for New Year party.

This my favorite recipe of Apple Martini Cocktail (From The Joy of Mixology by Gary Regan)

The Apple Martini (Яблочный Мартини)

Apple Martini

50 ml vodka (or gin)
25 ml apple schnapps
splash of fresh lemon juice (optional)
Stir (or shake). Cocktail glass, garnish with an apple pieces.

I don`t like gin for my Apple Martini. My choice – is vodka. As we now vodka is tasteless alcogol. Apple Martini cocktail with vodka has crisp sweet apple taste and smell. I obtained very good results with Marie Brizard Manzanita (Licor de Manzana Verde). You may add lemon juice for little sour taste if it is preferable for you.

Apple Martini Cocktail has somу variations. My favorite are:

The Sour Green Apple Martini (Коктейль Яблочный Мартини)

Sour Green Apple Martini

50 ml vodka
25 ml apple schnapps
splash of Midori
splash of fresh lime juice
Shake. Cocktail glass. Garnish with a green apple slice.

This coctail has amazing greenish colour and sweet candy apple taste.

The Classic Apple Martini (Классический Яблочный Мартини)

Classic Apple Martini

35 ml vodka
35 ml apple schnapps
splash of dry vermouth
Shake. Cocktail glass. Garnish with an apple slice.

The taste of dry vermouth work well with apple taste of MB Manzanita. This cocktail has interesting apple taste.

This cocktail I was found in promotional book of Finlandia Vodka. This cocktail is great festive concoction.

The Finlandia Red Caramel Apple Martini (Коктейль Яблочный Мартини)

Finlandia Red Caramel Apple Martini

50 ml Finlandia Cranberry Fusion vodka
25 ml green apple schnapps
5 ml butterscotch schnapps
Shake vigorously and strain into chilled martini glass. Garnish with a caramel cube and an apple slice.

Admirable! Happy New Year!
