Apple Pie Martini #AppleWeek

Today is the kickoff of #AppleWeek!

And what better way to start off than with drinks? 

Every good party start off with cocktails, right?

Last year I made a completely amazing Pumpkintini, complete with a pie crust swizzle stick, so I knew I absolutely needed to make the same thing happen only with apple pie!  And so the Apple Pie Martini was born!

I built the martini with a cinnamon-sugar rim and a drizzle of salted caramel sauce (use the ice cream topping to make things easy).  Then I added a mix of whipped cream vodka, apple juice, and a splash of heavy cream.  Top it all off with some cinnamon-sugar apples, and a pie swizzle stick and we’re in business.

Let #AppleWeek begin!

Apple Pie Martini

1-2 tbsp cinnamon sugar
1 tsp salted caramel sauce
2 oz whipped vodka (or caramel vodka)
2 oz 100% apple juice or cider
Splash of cream
Apple slices

Run an apple slice around the rim of the martini glass and dip the edge into the cinnamon sugar.  Toss the remaining apple slices in the rest of the cinnamon sugar and set aside.

Drizzle the salted caramel sauce around the inside of a martini glass.

Place the ice, vodka, apple juice (or cider), and cream into a martini shaker or mason jar.  Shake to combine, then strain the martini into the prepared glass. 

Garnish with apple slices, and pie crust twists.
