Appletini Cocktail Recipe

APPLETINI COCKTAIL Recipe

The Appletini, also known as the Apple Martini, is an apple-flavored cocktail. It became popular in the 1990s when, alongside the Cosmopolitan, numerous fruity short drinks became fashionable, many of which had the word “Martini” in their names. Like their role model, the classic Martini cocktail, they are served in a Y-shaped glassbut have little in common with a real Martini in terms of taste and ingredients.

INGREDIENTS

  • 45 ml/ 1½ oz. Absolut Vodka
  • 20 ml/ ⅔ oz. Calvados
  • 25 ml/ ¾ oz. freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 20 ml/ ⅔ oz apple juice

  3. Fine strain into chilled cocktail glass.

NOTES

The Appletini is the favorite drink of protagonist John “J.D.” Dorian in the TV series Scrubs, who ironically mistakes it for a hard drink and ordered him “with less Martini”. Alan Harper and Walden Schmidt from Two and a Half Men and Ted Mosby from How I Met Your Mother also drink it occasionally. In the King of Queens episode “Happy Hour,” Leah Remini as Carrie Heffernan enjoys some Appletini after work.

Cucumber Sling @ 2 Brothers Bar Santorini

CUCUMBER SLING @ 2 Brothers Bar Santorini

This time I was at 2 Brothers Bar Santorini / Greece. Bartender Xristos prepared the wonderful Cucumber Sling cocktail there. The 2 Brothers Bar Santorini is located in the beautiful Greek Island of Santorini, Two Brothers Bar first opened its doors in March 1983 as you guess it, by two brothers – Dimitris and Giannis. The tradition continues with the original owners sons Jack and Leuteris now running the show. From its humble beginings back then, the bar has grown to become an island favourite for visiting tourists and locals alike.

METHOD

  1. Combine all ingredients in a shaker with ice.
  2. Shake well!
  3. Strain into old fashioned glass.
  4. Add ice cubes and crushed ice.
  5. Cheers from Santorini!

NOTES

The special taste of the Cucumber Sling comes from the fresh cucumber juice and the Mastiha. Mastiha is a sweet liqueur produced with the mastikha resin from the Greek island of Chios. It has a distinctive flavor, reminiscent of pine and herbs. It is claimed to have medicinal properties and to aid digestion.
