31 DAYS OF HALLOWEEN
This green apple martini is a part of my 31 Days of Halloween. For each day in October, I come up with a cocktail recipe and snack recipe that perfectly matches a scary movie, Halloween movie, or a fun spooky activity. Check it out for all of your Halloween snack and drinking desires!
GREEN, SOUR, & SWEET
This cocktail is perfect for all of you green apple lovers out there. Not only is this drink so tasty, it's also such a fun color! I decided to make this cocktail with sour apple schnapps and green apple vodka for maximum green apple flavor. It's like a green apple explosion in your mouth. This cocktail was a part of Day 12 of 31 Days of Halloween when we watched The Haunted Mansion. I was inspired by Madame Leota's bright green colored smoke!
WHAT'S IN A GREEN APPLE MARTINI?
• Sour Apple Schnapps: If you like green apple flavor, you'll love sour apple schnapps. It's so good, and I could definitely drink it straight.
• Green Apple Vodka: I chose green apple vodka for more flavor, but you could also use plain vodka as well. A really delicious brand of green apple vodka is Ciroc Apple.
• Apple Juice: The sweetness of the apple juice cuts the sourness a bit and adds some more delicious apple flavor.
• Lemon Juice: Lemon pairs great with the apple. Freshly squeezed lemon juice is best.
• Green Apple Slices: For garnish.
HOW TO MAKE GREEN APPLE MARTINIS
In a shaker, pour in 1 1/2 ounces sour apple schnapps, 1 ounce green apple vodka, 1 1/2 ounces apple juice, and 1/2 ounce lemon juice. Add a couple ice cubes, and shake about 10 seconds until chilled. Strain into a martini glass and garnish with green apple slices. Cheers!

GREEN APPLE MARTINI QUESTIONS
I can't find green apple vodka. Help! No worries. While it will decrease the flavor of green apple, you can substitute plain vodka for the green apple vodka. What is schnapps? Schnapps is a distilled spirit. In America, schnapps are usually a mix of a neutral grain (usually wheat or rye) spirit with fruit syrup or spices. You can find so many different flavors of schnapps such as peach, peppermint, and butterscotch. They are usually pretty sweet, have a lower ABV, and used as a mixer. In Europe, schnapps is spelled 'schnaps,' and it is used to describe any strong distilled spirit. It's usually used to describe fruit brandies, have a higher ABV, and enjoyed straight.
