Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup ice cubes
  • 1 ounce vodka
  • 2 ounces caramel-flavored vodka
  • 2 cups cold apple cider
  • dash freshly-squeezed lemon juice

Pitcher Martinis

  • 1/4 cup vodka
  • 1 cup caramel-flavored vodka
  • 1/2 gallon cold apple cider
  • 1 tablespoon freshly-squeezed lemon juice
  • 4 cups ice cubes

Optional Garnishes

Instructions

  • Add the ice to a cocktail shaker. If you are making pitcher martinis, add the ice just before serving instead. 
  • Add the regular vodka to the cocktail shaker. If you're making the large quantity martinis, add it to a pitcher. 
  • Follow with the caramel-flavored vodka. 
  • Pour the cold apple cider and lemon juice into the shaker (or pitcher) (eight cups for the pitcher version).
  • Shake vigorously until the shaker frosts over, or, if you're making the pitcher-version, stir briskly with a long-handled spoon. 
  • Pour the caramel apple mixture into 2 martini glasses swirled with caramel sauce, if desired. Garnish with dried apple slices.
    If you're making the pitcher version, add the ice just before stirring again, then serve. This pitcher version serves 8. Garnish each martini glass with the optional apple slice. 
  • Enjoy responsibly. 

Notes

To make dried apple slices:
  1.  Thinly sliced green apples, then soaked them for about 10 minutes in a 2 cups of water mixed with 1 tbsp of lemon juice.
  2. Dry the apples with paper towels, then arrange them on a parchment paper-lined sheet pan.
  3. Dry the apples in an oven set to 170°F for 2-3 hours. Flip the slices every hour to ensure they dry out evenly. 
  4. After drying, allow the slices to cool completely before storing them in a cool, dry container.
