OK-for all you who think this is too sweet...since AR editted my recipe it's supposed to be made with DIET ginger ale and clear schnapps not the thick syrup-y kind. This is why your drink was way too sweet. I use Absolut Pear as well and rim your glass with cinnamon sugar before pouring for an added touch! Read More

I made this cocktail for a martini party this past weekend. I wanted something with a little fall pizzaz and this definitely did the trick. Everyone declared it their favorite as well as very dangerous; it was so smooth and fruity with just the right amount of tang vs. sweet. I couldn't taste the alcohol which made it even more appealing to me.:) I used Simply Apple juice (it's really cider not juice) because I like its tangy earthy autumn flavor but I think any organic no-sugar-added apple cider would work. I think powdered cider/clear cider (it's supposed to be cloudy) /apple juice would be way too sweet. Also I floated the apple slice in the drink so that could eat infused apple afterward. I will definitely be making this drink quite often for the rest of the season. It's a lovely color the fragrance is gorgeous and it tastes wonderful. The only thing I'd change would be it's name; I'd call it something all fancy like Autumn Orchard Martini!:D Read More

Very nice. I would have never thought of putting those ingredients together. It's almost like a fall punch only with a kick. I used Absolute Pears vodka. Read More

I generally drink only "straight" martinis but decided to give this a try for Thanksgiving. LOVED it! Won't be my every day drink but for a special occasion it's great. Read More

This recipe was great! We made it at our company fall festival and everyone loved it! Definitely adds to it to have the cinnamon sugar rimmed glass! We didn't put the apple garnish in but don't think that affected the taste! Thanks! Read More

A great alternative to other fall martinis. Yes do try it with diet ginger ale to lessen how sweet it is. I would also suggest lessening the amount of peach schnapps. Read More
