I've tried many red apple martinis and found out that simple is best! I don't like powder mixes and I don't like martinis that are too sour...so this was perfect! I don't know why, but the cranberry juice, along with the sour apple pucker and vodka, tricks your pallet into thinking its tasting a red apple! If you leave out the cranberry juice, then you'll have a green apple martini! But red apple is my favorite! I added my photo!
