Apple Pie Martini Cocktail Recipe

When I think of the Fall season I think of the leaves changing colors, the crisp cooler air, fresh apples & pumpkins from the local orchard and of course...Halloween. Fall is a great season to get together with friends & family and just enjoy each other's company.

Today I am sharing with all of you a delicious cocktail recipe from the great folks over at Nielsen-Massey. Looking for other recipes for the Fall and upcoming holiday season? If so, head on over to their website and check out their extensive recipe collection. The following recipe makes 1 martini.

Apple Pie Martini Cocktail Recipe

Apple Pie Vanilla Syrup

1 cup apple juice
1 1/2 teaspoons Nielsen-Massey Tahitian Pure Vanilla Extract
15 whole cloves
3 whole cinnamon sticks
1/4 cup sugar
2 tablespoons Nielsen-Massey Madagascar Bourbon Pure Vanilla Sugar

In a small saucepan, add juice, vanilla extract, cloves and cinnamon sticks; stir to combine. Cook over medium heat until juice is reduced by half. Carefully add sugars, cook and stir until sugars are melted; remove from heat. Completely cool and strain before use. Refrigerate unused syrup in an airtight container. Apple Pie Syrup is also a great addition to a hot mug of apple cider.

Yield ½ cup syrup


4 fl. oz. half-and-half
1 fl. oz. Coffee Liqueur
1 fl. oz. Apple Pie Vanilla Syrup
1/2 fl. oz. apple pie liqueur
1 cinnamon stick
freshly grated nutmeg (garnish)

Add ingredients into a cocktail shaker filled with ice. Shake well and strain into a chilled martini glass. Garnish with a cinnamon stick and freshly grated nutmeg.
