FOOD BLOGGERS RECIPE SWAP


I am a member of this active and helpful group.  Why is it formed and how it is helpful for a food blogger like me, read in this Spicy Carrot Soup post. This month I am paired with this young energetic girl Sasmita who blogs at First Timer Cook. Her blog is full of delicious and irresistible vegetarian and vegan recipes. It was tough to choose one recipe, but when I spotted this one recipe, my heart was set on it and it was none other than Green Apple Martini! Christmas and New Year's Eve was just around the corner and I was looking for a non-alcoholic drink recipe. Also, I don't have many drink recipes on my blog, so two birds with one stone and all that! :P

WHAT IS MARTINI?


Martini is a quintessential alcohol-based cocktail that is made from gin and vermouth (dry white wine), either shaken or stirred with ice and strained into a chilled martini glass. Squeezed lemon oil from the lemon peel and garnished with lemon peel and olives.

JAMES BOND AND MARTINI


I don't think I am just speaking for myself here that James Bond pops immediately into my head when thinking of Martinis. Fun fact - the books actually say "stirred and not shaken" but the movies thought it sounded better to say "shaken and not stirred". Brb just off to re-watch …

WHAT IS NON-ALCOHOLIC GREEN APPLE MARTINI/APPLETINI


Green apple martini is a non-alcoholic version of Apple Martini which is super easy to prepare. This delicious and satisfying non-alcoholic or virgin green apple martini is prepared with green apple, simple syrup and sparkling water or lemonade.

SERVING SUGGESTIONS


Impress your friends and family by making a mocktail to celebrate any simple get-together at home, anniversaries, showers, or Valentine's day. You know what? Why just not relax with this Virgin Appletini and picture yourself swinging in a hammock sipping away at a luxurious beach holiday!

INGREDIENTS


Green apples - I have used Granny Smith for garnishing
Apple juice
Lemon Juice
Sparkling water same as club soda or fizzy water
Simple syrup
Ice cubes

I have made a few changes in making this mocktail as life got hectic during the holiday season, so instead of boiling apples with sugar, I simply used cold pressed apple juice and lemon and lime sparkling water which was sweetened.

HOW TO MAKE NON-ALCOHOLIC GREEN APPLE MARTINI


Did I mention that this is so easy to make? Very easy! Combine all the ingredients except green apples in a cocktail shaker, shake well and strain into a fine-mesh into the martini glass. Garnish it with green apple slice (do not add ice) sit back and enjoy.

Sasmita cooked her green apple peels, cores of the apple and sugar in a saucepan until sugar dissolved. (Not sure she also cooked the apple flesh or not as it's not clear in her instructions). Turn off the heat and let the mixture cooled down completely. In a cocktail shaker add the mixture, club soda and ice. Shake very well and strain through a fine-mesh strainer. Pour into a martini glass, top it up with a green apple slice and serve.
