The preparation of the Appletini cocktail is very simple. First measure all the ingredients (vodka, naturally cloudy apple juice, lemon juice and maple syrup/sugar syrup) with a jigger and put them in a cocktail shaker. Add a few ice cubes and shake the shaker well. After about 20 seconds (the shaker should be slightly misted at the rim), strain the mix through a bar strainer into a martini glass. Now you can garnish the drink with an apple slice or lemon zest and serve it or enjoy it yourself.

The Appletini is a classic vodka cocktail that focuses on the interplay between vodka and apple juice. The lemon juice and sweet syrup give the drink a varied sweet and fruity taste. Alcoholic notes can also be clearly tasted, but harmonise very well with the sweet, fruity notes of the other ingredients. Try the Appletini yourself and let the unique taste convince you!

The relevance for bars

The Appletini (sometimes called the Apple Martini) is a fun cocktail to mix and share with friends. This drink is one of the most popular fruit martinis in the modern cocktail bar. It is noticeable that the recipe often varies from bar to bar and is always prepared differently. For example, the drink may be prepared with apple juice, but apple liqueur, brandy and apple cider are also popular ingredients for making this drink.

Perhaps the perfect cocktail for parties?

The Appletini is a cocktail to enjoy and relax with after a long day at work. It is a great drink for a break and relaxation in between. However, thanks to its simple preparation, the drink can also be prepared and served very well in large quantities or as a punch.

All you need is a punch bowl and a whisk. Now increase the above quantities by 20 each. Then add all the ingredients to the bowl and stir everything through with a whisk. Now you can add a few apple slices to the bowl and add ice cubes. Now you can serve the Appletini punch and pour it out to your guests.

A little stronger - if you please!

Would you like the Appletini to be a little more alcoholic and stronger? No problem: simply increase the amount of vodka to 6 cl. In addition, replace the apple juice with brandy. Also with 6 cl. Now you can prepare the drink according to the recipe above. But beware: This drink is really something: You should not drink much more than a cocktail of this! Try the strong version of the Appletini and let the strong taste convince you.
