4/5

The Apple Martini, or "Appletini," cleverly balances the crisp bite of apple schnapps with the smooth depth of vodka and a whisper of citrus from Cointreau, resulting in a refreshingly sweet yet tart concoction. Its eye-catching green hue and playful apple-cherry garnish make it a visually appealing choice that's not just another martini but a delightful twist on the classic, making it a hit for those who enjoy a zesty, fruit-forward cocktail.
