Comprising lemon juice, Absolut New Orleans vodka—informed by the vibrant spirit of the eponymous city—and apple schnapps, this cocktail is a refreshing choice for those who enjoy a balance of sour and sweet flavor profiles. Its name, "Double Sour," acknowledges the double hit of citrus and the pucker-worthy notes associated with both the lemon and the apple component. Typically served in a classic cocktail glass, this martini provides a crisp and invigorating drinking experience, rounded out with the smoothness of vodka and often garnished with a lemon twist to accentuate its bright, citrusy character.
