How to Serve

Serve your apple caramel martini in a prepared martini glass immediately after making it. To prepare your martini glass, dip the rim of your martini glass in a shallow plate of caramel sauce, coating the rim of the glass with caramel. After you pour the martini into the glass, garnish with an apple slice for a refreshing crunch. Enjoy martinis immediately for a chilled and delicious cocktail experience.

How to Chill Your Martini Glasses Quickly

Starting with a cold glass can help keep your martini colder for longer. To chill your glass quickly, fill it with ice and water and place it in the freezer or refrigerator for a few minutes. When you are ready to make your cocktail, dump the water out and strain the cocktail into the glass.

If you rim your glass with caramel, store the prepared glass in the freezer while you gather your ingredients and make your cocktail.
