Washington Apple Drink
I can't believe this is the first time I have shared this Washington Apple Drink Recipe. I feel like I should have shared it years ago considering I have lived in Washington State pretty much my entire life.
This cocktail recipe tastes amazing and is the perfect cocktail for celebrating Fall and all things Washington State. Even if you are not from Washington State I am positive you will enjoy this apple cranberry cocktail.
You can adapt this recipe to make either a Washington Apple Cocktail or a Washington Apple Shot. It really depends on how you want to serve this cocktail.
- Crown Royal Whiskey
- Sour Apple Schnapps
- Cranberry Juice
Garnish - Apple Slice
Crown Royal Canadian Whisky - You can use any whiskey if you don't have Crown Royal. You can also use Crown Royal Apple to enhance the apple flavor in this cocktail.
Apple Slices - The apple slices will start to turn brown once you slice them. Squeezing lemon juice onto the slices will help them from turning brown.
Cocktail Shaker – This cocktail shaker comes with a fantastic set of tools
Martini Glass/Highball Glass
This recipe can be adapted to be served in a punch bowl or in a shot glass depending on how large or small you want the cocktail.
You can add a bit of bubbles to this Washington Apple drink by adding in a splash of club soda or Sprite.
You can use any whiskey that you enjoy in this cocktail. Crown Royal is what was originally used but you can easily change this up.
For a fun twist, you can change out the Sour Apple Schnapps with an Apple Liqueur or apple brandy.
You can also change the cranberry juice to cran-apple for a different flavor.
If you want to make this a layered drink you can add the Sour Apple Schnapps to the martini glass 1st and then top with the Crown Royal and Cranberry Juice. The Sour Apple Schnapps will rest at the bottom of the martini glass.
Washington Apple Shot
To make this cocktail into a shot use ½ oz of each ingredient. Add to a cocktail shaker filled ice and shake and strain into a 2oz shot glass.
