Assorted Halloween drinks

Stormy Stewart


With autumn upon us and winter near we are gathering our last harvests for the year. With this comes rituals and family gatherings. Here is some recipes with a store bought liqueur. Sour Apple Pucker is a little bit sweet, a little bit tart, and while it's probably not a "gourmet" liqueur, it adds a nice zip to a lot of cocktails.

Directions Step-By-Step

The Appletini

•3 parts vodka
•1 part Sour Apple Pucker schnapps
•1 splash Rose's Lime Juice
Combine all ingredients with ice in a cocktail shaker until very cold. Strain into a chilled cocktail glass, and garnish with a thin slice of green apple. (Optional - rim the glass with a cinnamon and sugar mixture.)

Some recipes call for using sweet and sour mix instead of lime juice, but sour mix will give you a cloudy drink. Lime juice will give you a clear, pale green cocktail.
