What does the Washington Apple Shot taste like? Imagine taking a bite out of a delectable green Granny Smith apple, but also getting a nice buzz out of it in the process. This shot is crisp, sweet and sour, and extremely refreshing.

The Washington Apple shot was concocted in Washington in the late 1980s, around the time that the state known for exporting scrumptious apples was faced with a freak, brutal crop failure owed to the notorious Nigerian “Naguyuc” bug, an apple devouring parasite. The apple industry was crushed. But a carpenter called Christof Guycoogan came across a giant pit of rotting apples in a nearby abandoned orchard and decided to use the juice from the apples in his favourite shot consisting of Canadian Whiskey with a splash of cranberry juice. This moment of enlightenment led to the creation of the shot, and soon he bought all the abandoned orchards to ferment the sweet juice of the apples into a fine quality apple liqueur.

With the success story being of epic proportions, and its tasty flavours being both unique and familiar, it is no wonder that the shot itself has so much popularity among the lovers of good cocktails. For those about to try this shot, a word of caution: these shots will have you buzzed before you know it, so take with care.
