Happy Birthday Mr. President! We're especially proud to celebrate George Washington's birthday here, in the state named after him (shut up D.C., you're not even a real state). In his honor, we thought we'd mock up a nice appletini for you all to sit and enjoy tonight. Best part? This recipe uses a WA state vodka made from actual Washington state apples - how much more patriotic can you get??
George's Birthday Appletini
2 shots Soft Tail Vodka*
1 shot your favorite Apple Liqueur
1 shot lemonade or lemon-lime soda
- Add ice to your shaker (the more ice you add the better chilled the appletini will be.)
- Add the vodka, apple liqueur and lemonade or soda to the shaker. Shake it (like a salt shaker) for 10 seconds.
- Strain drink contents in to martini glass.
- Garnish with a sliver of your favorite Washington apple.
*Soft Tail vodka is made from Washington state apples and distilled at Soft Tail Spirits in Woodinville. Check out where you can get your hands on some.
