Caramel Apple Martini

By Raul Faria

Here is a fun drink I created for Serendipity 3’s upcoming fall seasonal section of our cocktail menu. Ready to make one:)

1) So let’s get our tools together. We are going to need our Boston Shaker (mixing glass and tin), Hawthorne Strainer, A Jigger with a 1 oz measure and one with a  .75 oz measure, 10 oz cocktail (martini) glass, garnish pick (http://barproducts.com or http://cocktailkingdom.com), A plastic squeeze bottle (bed bath and beyond or the aforementioned websites should have them too) and a sharp pairing knife. Ingredients you need to have are Stoli Gala Apple Vodka, Sour Apple Pucker, Butterscotch schnapps, Cranberry juice, Caramel sauce, A whole red apple, Cinnamon, Nutmeg and Sugar.

2) Lets begin by chilling our cocktail glass by either placing it in the fridge or freezer ahead of time or filling it with ice and water. To our mixing glass we will start with 1.5 oz of Stoli Gala Apple Vodka. I dig this stuff since it has a lush, fruity red apple flavor as opposed to the more common green apple flavor.

3) Next up we are going to add .75 oz Sour Apple Pucker. I never said I didn’t like green apple flavor, lol. The sour of the green and the lush with the red equals yummy balance:)

4) Now we are going to add .75 oz of Butterscotch Schnapps.

5) Pour .75 oz of cranberry juice into the mixing glass.

6) Before we start shaking our yummy cocktail we need to prep some stuff to make it pretty. First let’s get our caramel sauce into our squeeze bottle. Now that it’s in there, line the chilled cocktail glass with caramel by holding it above the glass and squeezing lightly while we create a line pattern by moving back and forth with the squeeze bottle. Next up lets get the other part of the garnish ready. Take a teaspoon of the cinnamon, a teaspoon of the nutmeg and two tablespoons of sugar and pour on to a small plate. Be sure to blend the combo with a butter knife or your barspoon. Next take your whole red apple and slice a wheel out of it. Make it thin but strong enough to be picked.

7) Now get some ice in our mixing glass full of good stuff and shake vigorously. Pour into caramel lined cocktail glass. Go get your apple wheel and a little caramel sauce and get some on the top half of the apple wheel. Dip it in our sugar combo and push the garnish pick through the top half so 60% (the unsugared part) of the apple will rest in the martini. Place the apple wheel garnish on the cocktail and enjoy!
