Serves 1


Chill a martini glass/coupette in the freezer or fill it with ice.

Take your Boston glass or small tin and, using your jigger to measure, add the vodka, schnapps and apple juice to the shaker.

Fill the shaker with cubed ice and seal using your Boston tin or lid, before shaking vigorously for 10-15 seconds or until your tin is very cold.

Remove your glass from the freezer or empty of ice if necessary.

Mix the brown sugar and cinnamon on a plate or shallow bowl.

Using a lemon wedge, coat the rim of your glass with lemon juice, before carefully dipping the glass in cinnamon-sugar mix to coat the rim.

Using your Hawthorne strainer and your fine strainer, double strain your cocktail into your chilled, rimmed martini glass or coupette.

Serve and enjoy!


This particular Martini twist is a Mixology Events house creation but by no means were we the first people to think of putting together these classic flavours in a cocktail. Our head bartender and events manager Jake Rogers had this to say about the drink:

“This is a real hen-party-special, the classic combination of apple and caramel make
a drink that’s like a toffee-apple in a glass. This is a great cocktail for an Autumn or Winter based menu.”

This recipe uses butterscotch schnapps, schnapps is something of a vague term, it originates from the low German term ‘schnappen’ which refers to the fact the spirit is usually taken in a quick slug from a small glass.

In Europe, particularly in Germany and Holland, Schnapps refers to a high-proof spirit, usually distilled from potatoes or grain, similar to akvavit or poitin, but it’s more universal usage hails from America, where the term schnapps is applied to any low-ABV liqueurs which are flavoured and have a high sugar content.
