Appletini Two Ways

Who doesn't like a good appletini ? Well depending on how you like yours i have two different versions for you . One is a mouth watering sour apple puckering experience , the other is an equally as delicious dry apple take on it .

I like both the recipes and each one has their own time and place to drink them . For example if your out drinking and everybody is already happily tipsy you know the neon green sour apple pucker one will be the drink everyone will be expecting when they ask for it .

The drink on the left is the classic bright green recipe made famous by JD from Scrubs who famously said he likes his easy on the tini. Anyway the 90s called they want their drink back!!

This drink is like going to the lolly shop but for adults. There's not much to say as its Appley tasting and sweet and tastes like your teenage years. Some might say it tastes like regret!!



1oz Vodka

2 oz. Sour Apple Pucker

1/2 oz. lime juice

1/2 oz. sugar syrup



Add all ingredients to a cocktail shaker with ice. Shake until frosty and strain into a chilled oversized Martini glass!


The Appletini on the right is a tasty updated version. I played around with a couple of recipes until I landed on this one. This is smooth and delicious. I'm not saying its better than the Jd appletini but its up to your own kind of taste i suppose!


1oz Vodka

1oz Apple schnapps

1/2 oz. lemon juice

1/2 oz. sugar syrup

1/2 oz. Cloudy Apple Juice



Place all ingredients into cocktail shaker with ice and shake until frosty. Double strain into chilled nick and nora glass. Garnish with Apples!

Ok drink down and enjoy Rustys!!

Let me know in the comments below which would you prefer the left one or the right one??

Remember to drink responsibly and better.
