Sweet and subtle, this Strawberry Appletini tastes similar to a regular appletini served at a bar, but with a very fresh and mellow flavor. The juiced apple is full of nutrition and has a much stronger apple flavor (much better than the artificial or bottled apple juice typically served). The strawberries add a nice twist to the drink, adding a refreshing and sweet sensation. The organic sugar around the rim and the floating apple slice takes the drink up a step, making it perfect for a dinner or cocktail party!
ORGANIC STRAWBERRY APPLETINI (serves 1)
Tools Needed: Juicing machine, shaker, strainer.
Remove the core from the apple and place into a juicer. Add the 2 organic strawberries and juice. Pour the fresh apple and strawberry juice into the cocktail shaker. Add 1 ounce of organic simple syrup and 2 ounces of organic vodka. Add 1 cup of ice to the shaker and shake vigorously for at least 30 seconds. Strain into a martini glass.
If you would like to coat the rim of the martini glass with organic sugar, pour enough sugar onto the bottom of a plate to be able to dip the rim of the glass in. Take a small slice of lime and rub along the rim on the glass and then dip into the organic sugar. (obviously, coat with sugar before you pour the cocktail into the glass).
To float an apple slice, cut a thin piece of the apple that is close to the core and place gently on top of the cocktail with a fork.
