St. Patrick’s Day Drink Week: Apple Mint Martini

March 15, 2012 | 12:30 PM | Cocktail Recipes | By Staff

Are you getting tired of green cocktails yet? If you are, get over it, because it’s only Thursday and the green beer will be flowin’ generously until Sunday morning. However, courtesy of Hidden Meadow Ranch in Greer, Arizona, today’s drink is a little classier than green beer. The Ranch, hosting its own St. Patrick’s Day celebration with a Corned Beef and Hash dinner on March 17th, will offer the drink as part of its day-long Irish celebration. With a healthy slice of green apple and plenty of apple vodka, this is the perfect spring drink, St. Patty’s celebration or not.

Ingredients
1 oz apple vodka
½ oz green crème de menthe
2 ½ oz Soda
Green apple slice
4 mint leaves

Preparation
Fill cocktail shaker with ice and pour apple vodka, crème de menthe and soda over ice. Gently shake (not stirred) and pour into a martini glass. Garnish with a slice of green apple and float four mint leaves on top to represent a four leaf clover.

Ingredients
1.5 oz John L. Sullivan Irish whiskey
1 oz simple syrup
.75 oz lemon juice
3 heavy dashes of amarena cherry juice reduction

Pour into a coupe glass or on the rocks with a cherry garnish.
