Sour Appletini Recipe

“There is a time of year in New York when, even before the first leaf falls, you can feel the seasons click. The air is crisp, the summer is gone. And for the first night in a long time, you need a blanket on your bed. It brings up other needs as well. ” Carrie Bradshaw, Sex And The City.

Martinis and Sex And The City make a wonderful combination. I used to religiously watch Carrie, Miranda, Samantha and Charlotte go through the trials and tribulations of finding love in the Big Apple. In fact, I loved the show so much that I threw a party for the final episode and had a crew from a national TV station come over to film it! It goes without saying that cosmopolitans were the drink of choice and lots of clinking and sipping went on. But since we are smack-dab in the middle of apple season, I thought offering a puckery sour appletini as a cocktail seemed more appropriate. Beside, I’m sure Samantha would be sick of drinking cosmos since she likes diversity. Time for something new!

As for myself, I’ve always preferred tart or salty cocktails. Since I’m not big on creamy, sweet and over complicated drinks, I find that something simple like a sour appletini is more appealing to my palate. The combination of vodka, sweet and sour mix and sour apple schnapps served cold in a frosted glass feels as refreshing as a frozen lemonade on a hot summer day. I could sip sour appletinis all day long!

This sour appletini recipe can also be made sweeter. If you prefer your appletini to be a bit more like apple pie, swap the sour apple schnapps for apple liqueur (such as brandy) and a splash of apple cider or juice. Garnish with a slice of apple or make it festive by sprinkling some edible glitter on top. Fabulous!

This is a very easy cocktail to prepare which makes it ideal for house parties – just make sure you have a freezer full of ice since you’ll be doing a lot of shaking!
