Candy Apple Martini

Ingredients:

  • 5 granny smith apples - divided
  • 1 large lemon - 1/2 freshly squeezed (2 tablespoons juice), 1/2 cut into wedges
  • red sugar crystals
  • 6 ounces Premium Vodka
  • 4 ounces Green Apple liqueur (Stirrings brand preferred)
  • 4 ounces grenadine

Instructions:

Peel, core and chop 4 apples and place into a food processor fitted with the blade attachment. Immediately add 2 tablespoons lemon juice over the apples and puree until the apples are super fine and liquified. Remove apple puree to a large bowl lined with a cheesecloth. Fold cheesecloth up and over pureed apple mixture and twist (making a purse). Ring and squeeze out the apple juice into the bowl. [yield: about 1 3/4 cups] You will have some left over juice to make more martinis, if desired. Set aside. {Note: can prepare up to 6 hours ahead and refrigerate} (Note: Shortcut above)

Moisten the rim of four martini glasses with the lemon wedges. Pour sugar onto a rimmed plate then dip the moistened rim of the martini glasses into the sugar, to coat all the way around.

Pour vodka, apple liqueur, grenadine and 1 cup fresh apple juice into a large pitcher and stir well.

Fill a cocktail shaker with ice and add candy apple martini mixture, working in two batches. Shake vigorously and pour among the four prepared martini glasses.

Garnish with the remaining apple, cut into 4 thin slices.

Notes

{Note: Can puree the apples in a fruit/vegetable juicer for a fresh shortcut}
