Appletini: Martini Family

Appletini also called an Apple Martini which is an extremely popular choice due to it’s yummy and eye-catching green color.

So if you’re in the mood for a sweet and sour type of drink then this it the perfect drink to order or make at home.

The drink was originally called Adam’s Apple Martini, which was invented back in 1996 at an L.A. restaurant called Lola’s. It was such a huge success even though it only contained two ingredients. 1 part vodka and 1 part green apple schnapps.

The recipe we decided to go with has a little bit of sweet and sour mix (home made of course).

It softens the vodka flavor and creates a more balanced flavor. However, you can stick with the original and leave it out.

Making an Appletini

Here are some tools you’re going to need

  • Measuring Jigger
  • Martini Glass
1. Chill the Martini Glass with Ice

A martini cocktail is normally chilled. Chilling the martini glass ensures the extra coldness after we shake and strain the cocktail into the glass.

2. Add Ingredients into Shaker with Ice

Add the apple martini ingredients below into a shaker with ice

  • 1 and 1/2 oz Vodka
  • 1 and 1/2 oz Green Apple Schnapps
  • 1/2 oz Sweet & Sour 

Use home made sweet and sour if possible. Here the recipe to make sweet and sour mix.

3. Shake & Strain into Chilled Martini Glass

Dump out the ice in martini glass. Shake and strain into the chilled martini glass.

4. Garnish with Maraschino Cherry or Fresh Apple Slice

If you’re ordering this at a bar then the bartender will usually garnish it with a Maraschino Cherry. If you’re at home, garnish this yummy drink with a fresh apple slice, or even better!

The Fuzzy Navel

This Fuzzy Navel drink is another one of those popular summer drinks that stems back from the 1980’s, when mixing cocktails was starting to become more mainstream.

The drink itself is said be invented by Ray Foley, which was almost 30 years ago and counting. It’s quite hard to say what the actual story on how the drink and name came about, but it was basically a conversation between Ray and a customer at the bar.

The customer made a comment saying he could smell the FUZZ coming from the peach schnapps in the orange juice. The orange that he used had the word “Navel” printed on the outside for the Navel oranges.

By combining the series of events and words, the drink had finally found it’s official name as Fuzzy Navel.

The drink is pretty much a Screwdriver with peach schnapps in it. You can even garnish the drink with a peach slice to make it more fruity and appealing.

Drink Variations

Obviously from the ingredients, the drink has less alcohol and falls into the sweeter side. If you wanted a more manlier, hair on your chest type version of the Fuzzy Navel then we recommend the Hairy Navel drink. 

It’s a drink that will help you grow some man hair, since it adds Vodka into the recipe.

Making A Fuzzy Navel

The Fuzzy Navel drink is very simple.

Here are some stuff you’re going to need

  • Measuring Jigger
  • Highball Glass
1. Add all Ingredients into Highball Glass with Ice

These are the includients you’re going to need for the fuzzy navel drink

  • 2 oz Peach Schnapps
  • Orange juice

You can add up to 3 oz of peach schnapps if you’re wanting a bit more alcohol.

2. Garnish with Orange Slice

You can garnish the drink with an orange slice or wheel. If you’re making this at home and have a peach available, then garnish it with a nice peach slice.

Tequila Matador

As you can tell from the name, the Tequila Matador drink is a tequila based cocktail that contains Tequila. Duh, but what else?

The drink is filled with pineapple juice and fresh lime juice that complements the tequila spirit extremely well. It’s less widely known than the margarita, which is strange because the Matador is a damn good drink.

It’s very easy to drink because the juice and lime juice really mellows out the tequila alcohol.

You can even say this could be some crazy variant of a screwdriver, which has vodka and orange juice. Just a refreshing drink if you had to bunch it altogether.

It’s also usually presented in either a martini glass or champagne flute. You can even just make this in a margarita glass.

Why not, right?

Variations

Instead of fresh lime juice, you could replace it with sweet and sour.

Craft Process: How to Make

Here are some stuff you’re gonna need to make a Tequila Matador drink

  • Martini, Champagne Flute or Margarita Glass
  • Measuring Jigger
1. Add Ice to a the Preferred Glass (Martini, Champagne, Margarita)

  • 1 and 1/2 oz of Tequila (up to 2 oz if you want it stronger)

You can replace the fresh lime juice with sweet and sour, or you can just add a sweetener.

Copperhead Drink

The Copperhead drink recipe is very simple drink. It just contains vodka, ginger-ale and a fresh lime garnish, which makes this an excellent ginger base drink.

Here are some recommended brands of ginger-ale to use.

  • Vernor’s Ginger Ale
  • Canada Dry Ginger Ale
  • Schweppes Ginger Ale
  • Seagram’s Ginger Ale
  • Reeds Ginger Ale

With many popular beliefs, it’s said that ginger-ale could help ail in soothing upset stomachs.

So if you’re in the mood for some alcohol but have a bit of a stomach ache then this might be the perfect drink for that situation. You could even add a bit of bitters on top for enhancing the flavor and effects.

Keep in mind, this is just a popular belief and is in no way backed by any scientific evidence.

Craft Process: How to Make

Let’s get down to making a Copperhead drink.

Here are some stuff you’re gonna need

  • Measuring Jigger
  • Highball glass
1. Add Ice to Highball Glass

Get a highball glass, add some fresh cold ice all the way to the top of the glass.

2. Pour 1 and 1/2 oz of Vodka

We normally recommend just a shot but you can always bump up the recipe to 2 oz of vodka, depending on your mood.

Any brand of vodka will do it, unless you have a preferred brand.

3. Fill to Top With Ginger-ale

If you have a favorite ginger-ale soda then make sure to use it. You can even replace the ginger-ale with ginger beer.

We like the Fevertree for ginger beer.

3. Garnish With a Fresh Lime and Enjoy!

What is a Dirty Shirley

You can pretty much guess what drink this is…. an adult version of a Shirley Temple that has alcohol in it! I guess that’s why it’s now called a Dirty Shirley.

If you’ve ever been to a nice restaurant as a kid then it’s a sure fact then you at least had a Shirley Temple sometime in your life or have at least seen another kid with it.

It’s that red mesmerizing mocktail drink with a delicious Maraschino cherry on top that made you feel cool when the server dropped it off. Afterward, you probably felt even cooler just sipping away at the red drink like a BOSS.

It almost gives you that adult feeling as if you were considered an equal to your parents because it came from the bar.

Of course, all it was is just a glass filled with lemon-lime soda and splashes of grenadine but it gave it that stunning cocktail look and it tasted pretty darn good.

Now that you’re searching this recipe on the web, it’s safe to say that you must be an adult by now and wanted to bring back some of that childhood memory but with an alcoholic twist!

Dirty Shirley Variations

Pretty simple recipe. It just has lemon-lime soda, splashes of grenadine or more if you wanted a more distinct red color or just to satisfy your CRAZED sweet tooth.

Instead of using lemon-lime soda like Sprite, you can actually replace it with ginger-ale which would give it a similar taste profile. You can even squeezed some fresh lime juice to even out that sweetness.

If you’re making this at home, make it the way you like.

Craft Process: How to Make

Some stuff you’re gonna need to make a Dirty Shirley

  • Measuring Jigger
  • Highball glass
1. Add all ingredients into a High Glass with ice

Instead of lemon-lime soda, you can substitute it for Ginger-ale. You can even add some fresh lime juice to offset the sweetness.

2. Garnish with Maraschino Cherry

Let the grenadine sink and displace throughout the drink. Garnish this tasty adult drink with a Maraschino Cherry.

ENJOY!
