The Apple Martini, also known as Appletini, is a vodka-based cocktail mixed with green apple schnapps that together creates a sweet, apple-flavoured, strong alcoholic drink. Schnapps can make the drink tart and sweet which calls for a small amount of lemon juice to balance the taste. The Apple Martini is a popular choice at bars and clubs, and it has become a classic cocktail in recent years. It is often considered a sweeter and more approachable alternative to traditional vodka martinis.The Apple Martini originated in Los Angeles in 1997 by a bartender Adam who first called his creation after himself – Adam's Apple Martini.
