Vintage Style Cocktail, the Apple Blossom

apple and ingredients detail

What with the ruby coloured Jack Rose, and summer days, I have been experimenting and enjoying some Sour Apple cocktails. The Sour Apple seems to work well with Bianco Vermouth, one of my favourite herb based liquors.

Apple Blossom cocktail in the sun

Place your cocktail glass or glasses in the freezer, and fill your shaker three quarters full with ice.

Then, add:

Two parts Applejack, I used a sour apple schnapps (which is actually not so sour)

One and a half parts Bianco Vermouth

One part Cointreau or Triple Sec..

Shake vigorously, until the shaker is frosty and pour into your chilled glasses. Garnish with a slice of fresh apple if you wish, or serve as is, which is my preference.

Cheers!

    1. Oh I’m glad to hear you enjoy them.
      I enjoy making them, it’s fun, and much like a bespoke garment, handmade, one-off it’s so nice making someone a cocktail. 🙂

    1. Yes, it is my favourite glass! I found one in an op shop a while ago, then another four – wohooo that’s a set in my book 🙂 It reminds me of the ‘silver maple’ Crown Lynn print, I’m not sure it’s connected, and champagne saucers are definitely retro / vintage these days, and perfect for a cocktail if not champagne.

  1. This looks like such a yummy drink to make… ! Definitely have to try it. My alcohol taste went as far as having some Patron this New Years which I regretted so much because that is not something you sip and get away with lol This on the other hand would have been absolute perfection! 🙂 Thanks for sharing! Great post!
