Autumnal Cocktail – Toffee Apple Martini

I look forward to Autumn arriving all year. Although winter is my favourite season, Autumn is my second favourite as the weather is cold but crisp. The leaves fall and the burnt orange colours are stunning. Plus it signifies winter (and therefore Christmas) are on their way. I’m not a big fan of Halloween, but I do really enjoy bonfire night, which is what inspired my Autumnal cocktail. The toffee apple martini! I can’t claim credit for inventing this from scratch, as I am sure it already exists. However I just decided to make it from ingredients I had in my cupboard at the time and to use the quantities that I thought tasted good.

There is no point in trying to describe it, as the name does it perfectly. It tastes like a toffee apple vodka cocktail, it is a fairly sweet cocktail, so be warned if you don’t like sweet, this won’t be for you.

 

Toffee Apple Martini

 

Ingredients

70ml high quality Vodka (I used a gorgeous vodka from the Iceland called Katla.)

20ml Toffee Syrup (although I regulary use caramel Monin syrup, as it is easier to get my hands on.)

100ml Appletiser

1 slice of apple to garnish

Ice to prepare

You will also need a cocktail shaker to make the cocktail and a martini glass to serve it. If you have a strainer, to stop the ice pouring into the glass that will help, but isn’t entirely necessary. ( Find some of my favourite bar tools here. )

Recipe – Toffee Apple Martini

This is an extremely straight forward cocktail to make.

  • Add the vodka, toffee syrup and ice into the cocktail shaker.
  • Shake vigourously, until the outside of the shaker looks slightly frosted from the ice.
  • Pour the shaken vodka and syrup mixture into the glass (through the strainer, if you have one. If you don’t, make sure to leave the ice in the shaker.)

  • Top it with the cold Appletiser and the slice of apple.

That is it – the super easy Toffee Apple Martini complete. Enjoy it on cold evenings, whilst snuggled in with the fire on and candles lit, absolute perfection.  As it is so quick to make, yet tastes great, it is a great one to make at any autumn/winter parties you may be hosting. You could make it a little different by adding sour apple sugar or sherbet to the rim of the glass.

 

Another variation I haven’t tried, but may be nice is adding a little cinnamon somewhere. So maybe a sprinkle in the vodka and syrup mix, or maybe even around the rim of the glass.
