The Ward 8 is a cocktail with a long history…
A Sour Apple Martini sounds like one of the more “girly” drinks that you might see on a cocktail menu – and that is not necessarily a bad thing, even though some drinkers might be tempted to go in search of more exotic sounding drinks. It is definitely sweeter than some cocktails you could order, but it wouldn’t still be on the menu if wasn’t such a tasty combination of flavors. The fresh lemon juice keeps this tasting like a tart green apple, rather than an apple pie, so it is both sweet and refreshing, in addition to being a good way to start a cocktail hour.
1 1/2 oz. Vodka
3/4 oz. Sour Apple Pucker
1/2 oz. Cointreau
1/2 oz. Fresh Lemon Juice
Pour all of the ingredients into an ice filled shaker and shake until chilled. Strain into a chilled cocktail glass.
