Autumn Cocktails


Enjoy the flavors of Fall in these cocktails I blended together.  Like most martinis, they pack a punch so take it slow.  The slightly sweet-sour blend goes down rather smoothly.
Caramel Appletini
  • 1 oz Vodka
  • 1 oz Sour Apple Pucker
  • 1/2 oz ButterShots
  • 3 oz Apple Cider

Shake up ingredients with ice and strain into a chilled martini glass. Garnish with slice of green apple or caramel candy piece.

Apple Pie Martini

  • 1 oz Vanilla Vodka
  • 2 oz apple cider
  • 1/2 tsp lime juice
  • 1/4 tsp cinnamon

Pour the ingredients into a cocktail shaker filled with ice. Shake well. Strain into a chilled martini glass. Garnish with a slice of apple.

    I am working on getting Thanksgiving dinner prepped and baking done today…one of these will definitely make the job fun and festive!!! Thanks for sharing!

  2. I don't even drink and those look soooo good!!

  3. artdecodiamonds says:

    The drinks look great….great blog!

  4. If making for a crowd, do the proportions stay the same? I know with some recipes, when making a big batch, it doesnt work the same way.


    • Hi Latisha,
      Unfortunately I haven’t made these in large batches, just 1 or 2 at a time in a cocktail shaker. If I were you I would just start with the same proportions of the main ingredients {liqueur & mixer} and then add in the other flavors in intervals, tasting as you go.
      I hope that helps.

  5. These look really nice (and great photography, too)!

    Are you planning any Halloween themed ideas? If so it’d be great, as we could give it a mention on the blog on our site – our customers are sure to be interested in a Halloween cocktail!

  6. I’ve made and sampled both of these and they are both equally great! Great signature cocktail to jump of Thanksgiving Dinner! Thanks!!!!

  7. Think I probably screwed up….I bought Apple cider, got home, and noticed it is unfiltered Apple cider. Is that ok? My husband thinks not, and says we will probably be drinking applesauce. Thanks for any help!

    • Hi Kali, I’m not sure but I think “filtered” apple cider is basically apple juice. I think the unfiltered will be fine.
