Although I’m most definitely planning on spending Valentine’s Day alone this year, (big ups to Anna Howard Shaw Day!), that doesn’t mean I can’t make a kick-ass cocktail to enjoy the day. I love an excuse to drink a sweet, girly drink, especially when I can garnish it with heart shaped drink picks! I decided to create a really simple martini, one that anyone could make, but still looks spectacular with the addition of a cinnamon bear at the bottom.
Vanilla Apple Pie Martini (makes 2):
- 4 oz. vanilla vodka
- 2 oz. apple pie liqueur
- 2 cinnamon bears
- In a shaker, over ice, pour the vodka and apple pie liqueur.
- Shake vigorously, for at least 60 seconds.
- Distribute between two martini glasses.
- Garnish with a cinnamon bear and enjoy!
