Apple martini - a cocktail without vermouth


"Apple Martini" (English appletini, apple martini) - a cocktail based on vodka (gin) and apple schnapps (apple liquor or calvados).

There are several common recipes for Apple Martini.

The following is considered the most canonical:

30 ml of vodka, 10 ml of apple schnapps, 10 ml of Cointreau liquor. Served with a slice of apple.

Due to the rarity of apple schnapps, it is often replaced with apple green liquor, while maintaining the proportions of the drink.

A recipe using gin and vermouth is also common:

15 ml of London dry gin, 40 ml of apple green liquor, 25 ml of dry vermouth. The method of preparation is styrene, also served with a slice of green apple.

And the fourth variation - using apple brandy - Calvados:

50 ml of calvados, 20 ml of simple sugar syrup, 15 ml of lemon juice. Prepare in a shaker with ice, decorated with a slice of green apple.

Homemade Apple Martini Recipes

In the simplest version, they use: apple juice (cider or apple-based liquor), vodka (gin) and ice. For preparation, it is enough to mix 2 parts of juice and 1 part of vodka, then pour the mixture into a glass filled with ice. The drink is ready.

Simple home option

Martini lovers suggest making a cocktail according to the following recipe: pour 40 ml of apple liquor, 15 ml of gin (vodka) and 25 ml of Bianco martini (or other white vermouth) into a mixing glass, mix well and pour into a chilled glass (or filled with ice).

With the addition of a real martini

As you can see, homemade apple martini variants are made in 1-2 minutes and do not require specific ingredients. If you consider these options too complicated, I advise you to simply dilute the martini with juice, mineral water or vodka. Some even add tea, but personally I avoid such a combination.
