This autumnal twist on a Martini features a classic combination of apple, lemon, vanilla and cinnamon, balanced with the icy dryness of vodka to form a warm, spicy and subtly tart cocktail.


50ml Vodka

25ml Apple Juice

10ml Lemon juice

12.5ml Vanilla Syrup

Cinnamon for Garnish


Chill a martini glass/coupette in the freezer, or fill it with ice.

Find your Boston glass or small tin. Using your jigger to measure, add the vodka, apple juice and vanilla syrup to the shaker.

Using your Mexican elbow and a jigger to measure, squeeze 10ml of lemon juice and add it to the shaker.

Fill the shaker with cubed ice and seal using your Boston tin or lid. Shake vigorously for 10-15 seconds, or until your tin is very cold.

Remove your glass from the freezer, or empty ice if necessary.

Using your Hawthorne strainer and your fine strainer, double strain your cocktail into your chilled martini glass/coupette.

Carefully, light your blowtorch and hold the flames a few inches above your cocktail. Lightly dust cinnamon over the lit blowtorch and into the cocktail. The cinnamon will sparkle as it burns and your drink will take on a warm roasted flavour.

Serve and enjoy!

This a neo-martini, a drink labelled with the martini tag whilst not strictly speaking a martini, that were popularised in the 1990’s.

Though Wikipedia attributes the creation of the ‘Appletini’ to Lola’s restaurant in LA, it didn’t feature on their menu until 1996, three years after the Apple Martini recipe was printed in Bob Sennet’s Complete World Bartender Guide.
