To make an Apple Pie Martini use one part Vodka, 1 1/2 part vanilla liquor, 2 parts apple cider, 1 teaspoon of cinnamon and a squeeze of fresh lime juice. Pour these ingredients into a shaker filled with ice, shake and then strain into a cocktail glass. This recipe is good for cold winter nights, and it is reminiscent of Grandma's apple pie.
The Lavender Lemon Drop Martini requires 2 ounces of lemon vodka, 1 ounce of fresh lemon juice, 2 sprigs of lavender, 1 tablespoon of simple syrup. Lightly muddle one lavender sprig and the simple syrup in a cocktail shaker. Add ice and the rest of the ingredients, shake and strain into a cocktail glass. Garnish with the spare lavender sprig.
For the Key Lime Pie Martini mix start with rimming a chilled cocktail glass with crushed graham cracker crumbs. Pour 2 ounces of vanilla vodka, 1/2 ounce of triple sec orange liquor, 2 1/2 ounces of pineapple juice and 1/2 ounce of lime cordial into a shaker with ice. Squeeze half a lime into the shaker, shake it and then pour into the prepared glass.Learn more about Liquor & Cocktails
