Sour Apple Martini: A St. Patrick’s Day Delight

Toast to St. Patrick’s Day with this Cocktail!

St. Patrick’s day is this weekend… What better way to indulge in a spirited celebration than with a specialty cocktail?! St. Patrick’s Day is all about the color green (we’ve probably all been pinched a time or two for not wearing green). Introduce a new shade of green to your celebrations with the Sour Apple Martini! This cocktail is the perfect combination of sweetness with tart green apple and a kick of calvados. Warning! This recipe is 100% alcohol, so proceed with caution. If martini’s aren’t really your thing you can also serve over ice and top with club soda! Cheers… enjoy and have a fabulous St. Patrick’s Day!
