Hot Apple Martini

Craving these, now that the weather is cooling? 

And too old for these?

What you need is a Hot Apple Martini

Not actually hot to touch, although that might be nice too, this has a gentle autumn heat from cinnamon schnapps. A lovely after dinner sipper for sitting out on the deck enjoying the fact that you get to put on a sweater after such a long, hot summer. Hey, maybe you'll finally go apple picking this year. Yeah, maybe not. There could be bees. Or ladders. Best just stick to apple martinis. 

Hot Apple Martini
from The Martini, a collection

2 parts vodka
1 part sour apple schnapps
1 splash cinnamon liqueur
1 dash sweet vermouth

Pour ingredients into a shaker with cracked ice and shake well. Strain into chilled martini glass. Garnish with a long cinnamon stick and an apple slice.

That is one gorgeous drink, Natashya! So pretty with the cinnamon stick in there.

It was almost 100F today, but I'm ready to bring on those wonderful fall flavors. Can't wait for the days at the apple orchard.

Apple picking is WAAAY to dangerous for me - I'll stick to the drink thankyouverymuch.

Oh, all right - make it two.
