Have you ever tried an Apple Martini? If you haven’t, we wouldn’t be surprised. The Apple Martini, also known as the Appletini, is a sweet and sour sipper bursting with flavors of apple candy. It rose to fame in 1997—around the same time that the Spice Girls were played everywhere, and the first-ever Men in Black movie hit screens.
Who created the Apple Martini?
The story goes that a bartender named Adam Karsten shook up the first batch of electric green Apple Martini mix in a bar called Lola’s in West Hollywood—and it was an instant crowd-pleaser. Legend has it that this carefree and fun little drink became a bit too popular for its own good, with the county sheriff dropping by the bar to complain about the sudden increase of very merry people all around town. Once you taste one, you’ll understand why. Apple Martinis are so moreish that you’ll want to make this cocktail again and again.
