Every Halloween party needs a signature cocktail. This Mulled Cider Martini is a definite crowd pleaser!
1 ounce cinnamon schnapps
2 ounces apple cider
1 ounce vodka
Add ice to a cocktail shaker. Add cinnamon schnapps, apple cider and vodka. Shake for a few seconds until well combined. Dip rim of martini glass in apple cider and then into the cinnamon sugar. Pour martini into the glass and garnish with a cinnamon stick.
Use local, fresh-pressed apple cider when you can find it – the intense flavors of the cider perfectly complement the vodka and cinnamon schnapps.
