Washington Apple Martini-Thirsty Thursday

Keeping in the fall spirit with apples as the theme, this Thirsty Thursday features an apple martini, a lovely crimson colored libation served in a cocktail glass rimmed with cinnamon sugar.   Comprised of German apple schnapps, Canadian whiskey and cranberry juice, this apple martini would be a nice addition to your cocktail repertoire.

Washington Apple Martini

1 jigger (1- 1/2 ounces) apple schnapps
1 jigger (1- 1/2 ounces) Canadian whiskey

Rub the rim of a martini glass with a lime slice. In a shallow plate containing cinnamon sugar, dip rim in to coat edges of glass. Chill glass while preparing the apple martini.

In a cocktail shaker filled with crushed ice, add apple schnapps, whiskey and cranberry juice. Shake well and strain into a cinnamon sugar rimmed martini glass. Makes 1 cocktail.
