I love a nice chilled glass of champagne. I also like a nice chilled glass of white wine. But I also like something a little special sometimes...like a cocktail or martini. Not your dry, gin and vermouth type, but a slightly sweeter one.
So I introduce to you a Green Apple Martini....and I have to tell ya', it's FANTABULOUS!!!
I saw the recipe for it in the November edition of Delicious magazine (pg 104)
So off I toddled to the shops to buy the ingredients. I had to hunt for the Monin apple syrup, but the liquor is readily available at many of the larger liquor outlets, best to check first though
I eventually found the Monin syrup at Cedar Hospitality supplies in Brunswick Road Brunswick here in Melbourne. Now this is a great place and worthy of a dedicated post all on it's own. It sells anything and everything related to kitchens and cooking. More on it later.....
Now to the Martini:
30 ml shot of vodka
30 ml shot of sour apple liquor
3 teaspoons apple syrup
Place the ingredients in a cocktail shaker with lots of ice, shake it up and strain it into a nice glass, then place a wafer thin slice of green apple in the glass and you're good to go.
Because we had four drinks to make at a time, MONT made it up in a jug, just to make it easier, naturally.
Hope you like it...we all sure did
