Apple Pie Martini

Apple Pie Martini

Who doesn’t love fall?  The air gets crisp, Sundays are filled with football, and pumpkin pie spice insanity sets in. With the first day of fall on Saturday, I decided I wanted a cocktail instead of coffee. This Apple Pie Martini recipe is crisp, spicy, sweet and delicious.  It also requires very few ingredients and is perfect for a Saturday night taking in an early sunset.

Apple Pie Martini Ingredients

I LOVE Martinelli’s Apple Cider and look for any excuse to use to buy one of the beautiful jars – like my Christmastime Hot Apple Cider with Rum.  I used that for my base and added, but how to get that pie flavor?  With the cinnamon spice of Fireball and the Vanilla Vodka of course!

Apple Pie Martini Recipe

Fill a shaker with ice and add 1.5 ounces of Fireball and 1.5 ounces of Vanilla Vodka.  There are a lot of vanilla vodkas out there, but I prefer Stoli.  It tastes less artificial than other brands.

Pick your cider of choice.  As I said, I love Martinelli’s, but there are plenty of great choices out there.  Trader Joe’s has a great unfiltered Apple Cider, and if you are lucky enough to live in apple country, definitely go pick up some fresh cider from your local orchard.


Then just shake it up!  If your are feeling fancy, rim your martini glass with caramel and cinnamon sugar.  It will taste great without it as well.  Strain into your glass and enjoy!

The Verdict

I am Really Into This Apple Pie Martini!  It was the perfect introduction into fall, but I will enjoy this through the winter season.  It would also work nicely on the rocks and can be dressed up or down. You can have your Pumpkin Spice Latte, I will take my Apple Pie Martini!
