THANKSGIVING MARTINIS! Fall Apple Jack Martini

Updated November 2015
This recipe has moved to the database below.


 Another whiskey based martini - like the Cranberry A Go-Go below only this time using apple as the flavor. This reminds me of Apple Jack - a liqueur distilled from apples - though I think the whiskey actually gives this a more complex flavor than Apple Jack.

This martini is perfect served with smoked cheeses and could be a nice Man Martini for those macho types who scoff at girly drinks, lol. It's sweet but it's got Jack Daniels in it - just lower the level of apple pucker and put more Jack in it - you won't hear any male grumbling at all.

In case you missed them - here's the links to my other Thanksgiving Martinis

GINGERBREAD MARTINI

 http://themartinidiva.com


I have to admit the Gingerbread Martini is my favorite Thanksgiving Martini - probably because it tastes just like my Mom's Gingersnap cookies! Those have been and will always be my favorite cookies ever but cookies take a lot more work than making this martini! What's really cool about this Gingerbread Martini is it's like getting the cookies and milk together!

But, just in case you have the time, here is my Mama's Ginger Snap Cookie Recipe  - I prefer mine chewy so only bake them for 11 minutes:

THANKSGIVING MARTINIS! Cranberry Martini!


So, why do I call this the CRANBERRY A-GO-GO MARTINI? Because it's made with whiskey and my baby boomer brain immediately thought of the famous Whiskey A GO GO, the famous nightclub on The Strip (Sunset Blvd.) in L.A. The Whiskey opened in 1964 and most of the icons of Rock & Roll played there or wandered in at one time or another during it's heyday in the 60s and 70s. I know, the only thing that really has to do with martinis is both involve booze but that's how my brain rolls these days, lol.

That being said, if you're a Jack Daniels fan this Cranberry Martini is a perfect Thanksgiving cocktail for you! It brings in the cranberry element of Thanksgiving dinner in a whole new way!

Stop by The Diva of Tiny Foods for some great appetizers to go with your martinis! And if you're feeling the need for some retro pop culture or pop art swing by The PopArtDiva Blog for some trivia, history and other boomer brain spasms like the one above, lol.

THANKSGIVING MARTINIS! Candy Appled Martini


Download the Full Sized, 5x3 Recipe Card in Print Quality Here

The Candy Appled Martini is a fun raspberry-apple flavored martini that uses apple vodka and sour apple pucker for a really nice apple kick. It's just like having a nice apple cider with a little holiday kick. I buy one of those soft candy apples and slice it up for a garnish - the hard coating apples don't slice up too great, lol.

I like to serve this with a small appetizer plate of smoked Gouda and some crackers - nothing too hearty or filling, especially if you're doing this just before your big Thanksgiving dinner.

Hand Painted MARTINI GLASSES




Yes, had to do some hand painted martini glasses!

Each glass is a unique design but I painted in tandem with another glass for a matched set. I used porcelain paints, available at your local Michaels store  art store amd filled them with fun pop art stars, hearts, lightening bolts and other geometric shapes dance around the bowls of each glass in a rainbow of color.

Fine painting details on each shape bring depth of color and interest, and the hand placed rhinestones, faux pearls and other fun three dimensional embellishments add a sparkling of bling.

Nope, I don't just use them to serve cocktails.

HAND PAINTED MARTINI GLASSES - One of a Kind!


These are the first of my NEW HAND PAINTED MARTINI GLASSES that I will be offering for sale at my Etsy store - The Original Art of Pop Art Diva.

I hand paint and design two at a time so that if you want a pair they will have exactly the same color profiles and balance - though all of my glasses will look great with each other.

Unlike many of the "hand painted, original" martini glasses out there - selling for $25 to $35 each - each one of these is an original design, painted by me and not farmed out to a factory overseas.

These are only going to be available for a limited time as one of a kind originals so grab yours quick - they may soon become collectors items!

Each glass is an original design
Hand painted by me - The Martini Diva.
They will sell for $45* each or $80 for a pair.


Please Feel Free to contact me directly at MartiniGlasses@PopArtDiva.com
to order my martini glasses right now or next week you can
BUY an Original Martini Diva Martini Glass
@ MY ETSY STORE

I have finished 8 more but am in the process of firing them, adding the crystals, pearls & other accents and getting them photographed. As soon as they are finished they will be posted for sale.
