I do love an Appletini – the ones made with Calvados and sparkling apple juice, NOT made out of bottled cocktail mix. Here’s my favorite Appletini cocktail recipe:


Prep Time 15 minutes
Total Time 15 minutes
Course Drinks
Servings 1 cocktail


  • 1 cocktail shaker


  • 1 1/4 ounce vodka
  • 1 ounce Calvados
  • 1 1/4 ounce sparkling apple juice I like Martinelli's sparkling apple juice for this cocktail.
  • 1/4 ounce freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 1/4 ounce simple syrup
  • Garnish: Amarena cherry and Granny Smith apple slices


  • Place a martini glass in the freezer to chill while you are making your cocktail.
  • Place the vodka, Calvados, sparkling apple juice, lemon juice and simple syrup into a shaker with ice. Cover shaker and shake vigorously until cocktail is well chilled.
  • Strain cocktail into a chilled martini glass.
  • Garnish with Amarena cherry and apple slices on a cocktail pick.
