GREEN APPLE MARTINI

This is a cocktail with a kick and addictively delicious. I have to say it is
enormously useful as a quick shot of party spirit before you go to someone else’s
party. I always feel better the next day, having a stiff drink before and water
(sparkling rather than still but, hey, let’s live a little) during a party.

Although it is a sour apple martini, at home I refer to it only as Kryptonite.
The lurid green is quite something.

I’ve given quantities per glass simply because it’s better made up glass by
glass and you can hand them around to your guests as they request them. I
wouldn’t want to make these for a huge roomful of people, but they are perfect
as a way of helping those who’ve hotfooted from the office and are weary with
the working day unwind at the beginning of a dinner party. If you want huge
pitchers to pass around, either go for the White Lady here or the gorgeously red
Ginger Pom below.

1 shot vodka or gin
1 shot sour apple liqueur ½ shot Monin Green Apple syrup slice of Granny Smith apple to
garnish

1 In a martini glass, combine the vodka/gin over lots of ice, and add the liqueur
and syrup.


2 Slice a segment of apple, removing any core. Cut a nick in the bottom of the
slice horizontally, and slip it onto the edge of the glass.



Serves 1—and how!
