Why I love apple juice with vodka

  • Fresh apple juice and apple cider is plentiful this time of year.
  • Vodka is a great blank slate for a cocktail and really allows the apple flavor to shine through.
  • Adding ginger and cardamom add an unexpected complexity to the drink.

How to make an apple juice and vodka cocktail

Rim the glasses. Swipe the glass lime juice and dip them onto a plate with the cinnamon sugar – or use a cocktail rimmer – and turn the glass until the rim is completely coated. Next, fill the glass with ice to 3/4 full.

Shake the cocktail. Add ice and the cocktail ingredients to a cocktail shaker. Cover and shake until cold.

Garnish and serve. Strain the cocktail over the ice and garnish with fresh thyme and some apple slices.

FAQs and tips for making vodka and apple juice

What kind of apple juice should I use? I would recommend you buy a quality apple juice for this cocktail. One made from honey crisp apples or a fresh pressed apple cider.

How can I prevent my apples from browning? To stop your garnish from changing colors, you can dip or coat them in lemon juice. You can also buy this fresh fruit protector that preserves the color of fruits, it even works really well for avocado.
