The classic minty cocktail gets a delicious sweet and sour, fall inspired twist in this recipe for a crispy Apple Mojito. This delicious martini is the perfect blend of two seasons; fall and summer. It is the best drink to have in the shifting months of the season, when summer is turning to autumn and the leaves are changing colour.
This sweet and sour cocktail is quite an addictive drink for anyone who is generally a favour of sour-flavoured martinis and apple-flavoured foods and drinks in particular. The refreshing zing of mint goes so well with the crisp sourness of the apple, combining to result in a drink that is not only scrumptious, it is also invigorating and comforting all at once.
This drink sports just a hint of sweetness, and its uplifting nature is the reason it will put you in a good mood each time you drink it. Since it is a seasonal drink, it should be made the most of while it’s around, and is the perfect drink to enjoy over the weekend with a group of friends. The Apple Mojito has a classic recipe that typically remains the same and has very few variations. It is a blend of few ingredients that calls for some of the ingredients normally featured in a mojito, with the introduction of apple juice for tartness, and honey or sugar syrup to cut down a bit on the sourness and introduce a sweet balance between the mint and apple flavours.
