I meant to write this post yesterday. I left my laptop sitting out while I went into the kitchen to test a new waffle recipe. The waffles were just okay (this recipe is better), but that didn’t stop me eating three of them. When I came back into the living room to sit down and write, I discovered the cat had decided to take a nap on my laptop keyboard.
My cat is clearly some kind of devious genius because she managed to step on just the right buttons to turn off my mouse. If Geoff would have been home, the problem could have been solved in about five minutes because he knows that laptops don’t just work by magic, but alas, he was out for the night. Obviously, I had no choice but to close my laptop and go to bed at 7:30. It actually ended up being a pretty great night.
But as you’re reading this, it’s Friday, and we all deserve to have exactly the drink that we really want. I really want a sweet and tangy Green Apple Martini. I’m not apologizing. You know it’s tasty. And the good thing about making this drink at home is that there’s no one around to judge you.
I ordered the green apple syrup on Amazon, but it was worth it. Green apple liqueur is pretty easy to come by here. And of course, vodka is vodka. Shake it all up with ice so that it’s crazy cold, and serve it in a fancy glass because you deserve it.
You just never know how things are going to go sometimes. This is why you always need to be ready to make a cocktail. This Green Apple Martini will get you through anything with a smile on your face.
Green Apple Martini
1 shot vodka
1 shot sour apple liqueur
1/2 shot green apple syrup
Granny Smith apple slices for garnish, optional
- Add your vodka, liqueur, and syrup to a cocktail shaker with plenty of ice. Shake to combine and chill.
- Strain your cocktail into a martini glass, and add a slice of Granny Smith apple if you like.
