Apple Spiced Martini

“I love the idea of enjoying an apple when they’re at their best,” says chef  Marcus Samuelsson about this cocktail creation. “And the spices remind me of a warm apple pie during the autumn holidays.”


2 oz. vodka (Samuelsson uses SKYY)

1/2 oz. fresh lime juice

1/2 oz. apple-spiced simple syrup

2 dashes Angostura bitters

Tools: shaker, strainer

Glass: coupe

Garnish: apple fan


Combine all ingredients and shake with ice cubes. Strain into a chilled glass and garnish.


Apple-Spiced Simple Syrup

1 tsp. ground cinnamon

1 tsp. ground ginger

1 tsp. ground allspice

1 tsp. ground nutmeg (freshly ground, if possible)

1 cup granulated sugar

1 slice of a red apple, 1/4-inch thick

1/2 cup water


Combine all ingredients in a small saucepan, bring to a boil and stir to combine. Remove from heat and let cool to room temperature. Double strain into an airtight container and keep refrigerated for up to two weeks.
