Friday Cocktail: Toffee Apple Martini

Although they were a favourite of mine, I don't think I've had a toffee apple since I was about ten. After that, everyone kept going on about how they'd rot and break my teeth, and how they were for kids, and I fell out of the habit of eating them. Autumn became just a bit less fun.

I've decided to change all that this year, and have rekindled my love of the toffee apple by adding an adult, martini-shaped twist. This really is a simple cocktail, but it's definitely one of the absolute tastiest I've come up with. It will also be perfect for Bonfire Night, which, by the way guys, is only a few days away.

Toffee Apple Martini recipe (serves one)

Ingredients:

  • 1.5 shot vodka
  • 1 shot toffee liqueur (I used Dooley's)
  • 1 shot apple cider
  • 1 shot apple juice
  • Squeeze lemon juice
  • Toffee sauce and an apple slice, to garnish

Shake it!

1. Rim the glass by dipping it in a plate of toffee sauce. It's a slightly messy task, and will induce much finger-licking (bonus.)
2. Combine the vodka, toffee liqueur, cider, apple juice, and lemon juice in a cocktail shaker and stir vigorously. You can do this over ice (and then strain) if you like, but I prefer this particular recipe without (I normally just use vodka from the freezer, and make sure the cider and apple juice is refrigerated for a while before use.)
3. Pour carefully into the glass, and garnish with a slice of apple.
