How to make ...

Caramel and Apple Martini

The Caramel & Apple Martini uses the classic autumn flavour combinations of tangy apples, warm spicy cinnamon and malty, sweet caramel and butterscotch.

Method

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

Take your Boston glass or small tin and, using your jigger to measure, add the vodka, schnapps and apple juice to the shaker.

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

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

Mix the brown sugar and cinnamon on a plate or shallow bowl.

Using a lemon wedge, coat the rim of your glass with lemon juice, before carefully dipping the glass in cinnamon-sugar mix to coat the rim.

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

Serve and enjoy!

History

This particular Martini twist is a Mixology Events house creation but by no means were we the first people to think of putting together these classic flavours in a cocktail. Our head bartender and events manager Jake Rogers had this to say about the drink:

“This is a real hen-party-special, the classic combination of apple and caramel make
a drink that’s like a toffee-apple in a glass. This is a great cocktail for an Autumn or Winter based menu.”

This recipe uses butterscotch schnapps, schnapps is something of a vague term, it originates from the low German term ‘schnappen’ which refers to the fact the spirit is usually taken in a quick slug from a small glass.

In Europe, particularly in Germany and Holland, Schnapps refers to a high-proof spirit, usually distilled from potatoes or grain, similar to akvavit or poitin, but it’s more universal usage hails from America, where the term schnapps is applied to any low-ABV liqueurs which are flavoured and have a high sugar content.

The Caramel & Apple Martini uses the classic autumn flavour combinations of tangy apples, warm spicy cinnamon and malty, sweet caramel and butterscotch, creating the perfect drink for a wintry bar hire.

Martinis are one of the most versatile families of drinks, with the only real stipulation being the glassware, while most Martini variants tend to use a vodka-base, there are plenty of exceptions to this rule. Martinis range all the way from the strong, sophisticated original; a stirred mixture of gin or vodka with a careful splash of dry vermouth, to the sweet, tropical, fruit-forward French Martini; a combination of raspberry vodka, raspberry liqueur and pineapple juice. The Caramel & Apple Martini sits closer to the latter of those two drinks but with its rich, unctuous, nostalgic flavour profile, it’s sure to be popular even with the most discerning of guests.

If you’re planning a Martini-styled menu there’s a huge range of other drinks that could feature alongside the Caramel & Apple Martini. It’s always worth offering the original Martini on a Martini menu to cater to the experienced drinkers and to give your guests a field of reference for the many variants of this drink. You might also want something dry and zesty like the Breakfast Martini; a gin-based cocktail featuring triple sec, lemon juice and tangy, bittersweet marmalade, or something tropical and luxurious like the ever-popular Pornstar Martini: a mix of vanilla vodka, passionfruit liqueur and passionfruit juice with an added shot of prosecco.

For those planning an autumn or winter bar hire and wanting some other warming winter cocktails and seasonally flavoured drinks, there’s some great options to choose from. The Maple Leaf is a caramel-y mixture of rich bourbon and maple syrup with a balancing splash of lemon, or the Blood & Sand is an often overlooked classic, featuring smoky Scotch and fruity cherry liqueur.

If you’re thinking about featuring a Caramel & Apple Martini at your bar hire and want to know more about what drinks might be good to serve alongside it, be sure to speak to your event organiser about your options, or check out some other vodka based, wintry and Martini-style cocktails from our list.
