Appletini with apple slices

One of the best things about martinis is that there are so many fun variations to try. We’re all about the holiday themed drinks, like this Pumpkin Martini and Peppermint White Chocolate Martini, but you can never go wrong with classic vodka martini recipes.

These green apple martinis, sometimes called a sour apple martini, are one of our favorites. Just combine vodka, sour apple liqueur, and apple juice and you’ve got a boozy treat that’s always a crowd pleaser!

Served icy cold in a chilled martini glass with an apple slice garnish, this appletini recipe is the perfect relaxing happy hour treat. With its vibrant green color, this easy cocktail works for your Christmas or St. Patrick’s Day holiday cocktail list too.

Tips & Tricks

  • To keep your apple slices from turning brown, squeeze some extra lemon juice on them first.
  • Try a sugar or cinnamon sugar rim on your glasses for a fancy and delicious presentation.
  • These are best served extra cold, so it’s a great idea to chill your martini glasses first. Just place in the freezer to chill for 15-20 minutes before serving.
  • Try a caramel vodka in place of the plain vodka for a caramel apple martini version of these delicious cocktails.

What Kind of Vodka Should I Use?

There’s no need to buy anything super expensive for this recipe – any good mid-priced vodka will do. I used Pinnacle brand, and it turned out great. Smirnoff Green Apple vodka also works well and adds even more delicious green apple flavor!

Can I Make These in Advance?

This drink tastes best when served extremely cold right out of the shaker. Because of that, it’s best not to try making it ahead of time.
