Off Topic - Apple Martini Recipe

Every now and again even a wine blogger needs something different to imbibe. Hence, the Apple Martini. This recipe is guaranteed to turn out a perfect drink every time. Just be warned -- these drinks are STRONG! (The only mixer for the vodka is the schnapps).

Green Apple Martini

Pour 2 parts sour apple schnapps (I use DeKuypers Sour Apple Pucker) and 1 part good vodka (I use Skyy or Absolut) into a martini shaker filled with ice. (Don't have a shaker? Use a salad dressing cruet.) Shake vigorously, and pour into a martini glass. If desired, garnish with a cherry or a slice of Granny Smith apple.

This is a perfect summer drink.
