The Great Cocktail in a Jiffy

An Apple Martini (or Appletini) is a fine drink to enjoy with friends or alone, but to qualify as a real Apple Martini, the ingredients must include Vodka and one or more of the following: apple juice, apple cider, apple liqueur, or apple brandy. Without this ingredient, it's not an actual proper Appletini. Detailed on this website are 11 popular apple Martini recipe ideas you can easily create in a jiffy. These all look great served in a cocktail glass, but any type of clear glass will be just fine. Simply mix-them-up & enjoy!

Notes about cocktail measurements

When reading cocktail recipes and mixes, the term "part" is often used to describe an "amount" for the ingredient. This "part" is purely a relative term. Example: "1 part of Vodka" - this means what ever amount you would like, then "2 parts of Sour Apple Pucker" means twice the amount of the item before it.
