Keep it green this St. Patrick’s Day with a martini that is bright with a green glow and loaded with apple flavors! Go green this holiday with a classic green cocktail, The Appletini.

St. Patrick's Day is the perfect excuse to throw a party in the middle of March. You don't have to settle with green beer either. What better way to feel like a lucky Irish for a day and celebrate that pesky leprechaun than with a bright green, full of flavor appletini?

St. Patrick's Day appletini

Serves 1

Ingredients:

  • 2 ounces vodka
  • 1 ounce Midori
  • 1 ounce apple schnapps
  • 1/4 ounce simple syrup

Directions:

  1. Place the vodka, martini shaker and a martini glass in the freezer for 30 minutes.
