Sparkling Apple Cider Martini

Fall drinks often taste like liquid scented candles. Picture walking into a gift shop. There ya go! Ew. This Sparkling Apple Cider Martini proves that not all fall cocktails taste like potpourri! It’s refreshing, not too sweet, and easy to drink. This is Eric’s and my go-to fall sipper. It’s perfect to serve all holiday season!

Prep time: 10 minutes

Cook time: 0 minutes

Total time: 10 minutes

The Ingredients

4 ounces apple cider

3 ounces prosecco or champagne

1-ounce vodka

1/8 teaspoon fresh orange zest

1/8 teaspoon maple syrup (add 1/4 teaspoon if you like your cocktail sweeter)

Ice

For the rim:

1 teaspoon light brown sugar

1/4 teaspoon cinnamon

 

 

 

The Steps

For the rim: Add light brown sugar and cinnamon to a plate. Stir with a fork to combine. Use a basting brush or your clean fingers to wet the rim of your glass with apple cider. Tip the glass upside down and coat the moistened rim with cinnamon sugar. Set aside.

For the cocktail: Add ice, apple cider, vodka, orange zest, and maple syrup to a cocktail shaker.  Shake well. Pour the cocktail through a strainer into the glass to catch ice and orange zest. Top off with prosecco. Stir. Oh yeah!

TIP: if you don’t have a cocktail shaker, you can shake it in mason jar or a water bottle. Make sure to strain your drink before serving!
