I am calling this a martini, but I don’t have any martini glasses so the next best thing was a mini mason jar. Kind of fitting for an apple pie martini though!
This drink was created when my roommate and I decided to have a modernized thanksgiving dinner and also wanted an ode to college. There were many a-night spent enjoying apple pie shooters. The traditional college way of enjoying an apple pie shooter is to lean your head back and have someone pour a little vodka in your mouth, a little apple juice, and then topping it with whipped cream and cinnamon.You must then lean forward and shake your head about to mix the shot together and by golly it tastes just like pie!
For tonights meal, I have made this drink acceptable for a 24 year old like me. Instead of a shooter and apple juice, it has morphed into a martini with apple cider (a little, tiny bit more mature…maybe).
Ingredients (makes 2 drinks)
- 3 oz vodka
- 3 oz apple cider
- About a ½ cup whipped cream (not cool whip!)
- A heavy sprinkle of cinnamon
Pour all ingredients into a cocktail shaker. Shake and serve in whatever glass you fancy.
