CARAMEL APPLE MARTINI - Guest Recipe!


Here's a different recipe for a Caramel Apple Martini submitted by my Boomer Diva Bud, Deb Stevens! This is a fun twist on an apple martini! Now, I have to admit I haven't tried this because I couldn't find the Butter Ripple Schnapps! So I can't give any ratings on this, but if the Butter Ripple Schnapps has a nice caramel flavor this should be pretty good! I'll try this out with some substitutions and post that recipe when done!

BTW, there's links to all my apple martini variations at the bottom of the post!

CARAMEL APPLE MARTINI
1 OZ green apple liquor or Bacardi apple rum
1 OZ butter ripple schnapps
2 tablespoons or good squeeze of fresh citrus juice (lemon-lime)
Combine all three ingredients in a martini shaker, and gently shake. Pour into a chilled martini glass. Garnish by dropping a single cherry into the glass or a slice of Granny Smith apple. You can also drizzle some caramel around inside the glass!

The CILANTRO MARTINI - No, I'm not kidding!


I am a very big fan of cilantro, I even grow my own I use so much of it. Cilantro is a strong flavor and people either love it or hate it. I've never seen anyone shrug and say they can "take it or leave it" or "leaf" it, pardon my really bad pun.

This martini reminds me a little of a gimlet, the lime is a co-star but, of course, secondary to the cilantro. The muddled cilantro infuses it's aroma and flavor into the mix when blended with the lime juice and sugar in the shaker.

I don't strain my Cilantro Martini at all - I love the little bits of cilantro that float around in the martini visually as well as enjoying those little bits bursting flavor on my palate.

I truly love this martini, I find it a nice change from all the sweet and creamy martinis I like. I even do it in a version with ginger and with dill, but this one remains my favorite.
