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.
