Appletini Cocktail Recipe

The fruity martinis can be quite sweet but this one is pleasingly tart, and can be made even more so by replacing the Cointreau with lime juice.

Apple Martinis are very adaptable and if you like your drink a bit sweeter, pour in equal parts of apple and lemon juice instead of the Cointreau. You can even add a dash of simple syrup, or try it with a half measure of dry Vermouth.

In Germany, “schnaps” refers to any hard liquor and is basically equivalent to the way Americans would use the word “booze”. Real Schnapps is made by distilling fruit and liquor together, so is what the French call an “eau de vie”. In Europe, you would ask for an “Obstler” if you’re looking for one of these fruit brandies.

In America, Schnapps is a type of spirit where the flavour is added after distillation, a bit like a flavoured Vodka. They often mirror the flavour of other liqueurs but are much dryer. You use Peppermint Schnapps in a Polar Bear shot, for instance, because crème de menthe would make it too sickly sweet.

Schnapps is most commonly used in shooters and genuine European style Schnapps is drunk straight-up. The Appletini cocktail (or Apple Martini) is a notable exception and worth savouring instead of downing in one go.
