This mix results in a cocktail with a crisp and refreshing taste that's reminiscent of biting into a fresh, juicy red apple. The deep red hue of the cranberry juice gives this drink a visual appeal that matches its name, and it's typically served in a shot glass, making it a popular choice for a quick, potent sip with a burst of combined fruit flavors.
