Toffee apples are known by different names around the world, usually depending on what the outer coating of the apple is made from. In the USA and Canada, they are candy apples, and in some European countries caramel apples. It’s known that the first ‘candy apple’ was made in 1908 by William Kolb from Newark, USA. However, the act of preserving fruits in a sweet coating can be traced back to Arabian markets.

Kolb didn’t invent the candy apple by design, instead purely by accident as he used an apple on a stick to display his red cinnamon candy in his shop window. People saw this and soon were demanding more and more of the candy-coated apple treat. Due to this, the red cinnamon candy is the traditional coating for apples in the autumn, but now apples are coated in toffee, caramel, chocolate and many other delicious sweet toppings also.

For this recipe you can buy toffee syrup or make your own, here’s how to make your own:

Put 240ml warm water in a saucepan with 115g toffees. Warm on a low heat and stir consistently until the toffee is dissolved. Let the syrup cool down then pour into an airtight container to keep.

Let’s take a look at how to make this sweet yet crisp cocktail:

Ingredients:

  • 45ml Belvedere Citrus Vodka
  • 60ml pressed apple juice
  • 15ml lemon juice
  • 15ml toffee syrup
  • Apple slice (dipped in lemon juice) to garnish
  • Ice
