Apple Pie Martini
If you watch TOW Eddie Moves In, you’re liable to miss the inspiration for this week’s signature beverage.
Toward the beginning of the episode, Rachel’s serving at Central Perk. She’s got a slice of apple pie in one hand, and a cup of coffee in the other. Suddenly, she trips — and that slice of pie lands in the hood of a patron’s coat.
So of course, we’re drinking Apple Pie Martinis.
APPLE PIE MARTINI
Graham cracker rim:
1 Tbsp crushed graham crackers
1 tsp sugar (turbinado or brown)
2 oz apple cider
1 oz vodka
Splash Goldschlager or Fireball
A few drops vanilla extract
Pinch of salt (optional)
Spices (see Notes)
Combine martini ingredients in a cup or dish. Cover and refrigerate until ready to serve (the longer it “marinates,” the better!)
To serve, combine graham cracker rim ingredients and spread in a shallow dish. Wet the rim of a martini glass and coat with the crumbs, then pour the drink into the glass.
Makes a GREAT batch cocktail! Mix it up, refrigerate, and serve at your party.
Spices: Heather used 2 cloves, a sprinkle of nutmeg, and a sprinkle of allspice. Elizabeth used a crushed allspice berry and a pinch of cinnamon. Basically, use whatever spices make you think of apple pie!
You can also use spices as a garnish.
