Chris came home early from work today and the first thing he did to kick off Christmas Eve was to make this lovely cocktail for us –yay Chris! 🙂 If you like a strong cocktail, like a Martini with a hint of apple, you’ll love this one. Cheers!
So with the holiday season upon us, I wanted to make a drink that was sophisticated yet fun. Anne brought home some Calvados and I decided to try adding it into a vodka “martini”. The result? Just as one would expect, it tastes like a vodka martini with an apple finish. Eat the apple garnish to draw out even more apple flavor.
Note: I’m a martini purist and normally only reserve the word for the drink comprised of gin and vermouth. But ’tis the season to have fun, right?
- 3 ounces of vodka (I used Grey Goose but feel free to use your favorite brand)
- 1/2 ounce of calvados
- 1/2 ounce of dry vermouth
Shake with ice and strain into a chilled martini glass. Garnish with thin slice of apple.
