I have been drinking these for a couple of years now -- it MUST be Crown Royal though -- anything else wrecks the flavor. Add a couple "DROPS" of Goldschlager and it becomes a Washington Apple Pie -- with the cinnamon flavor. Just a couple of these and you won't need anything else for the night... Another idea add Pineapple Juice instead of Cranberry Juice for a "Golden Delicious Apple". YUMMMMM... Read More

It was ok. I followed the recipe exactly and found the sour apple schnapps to be very overpowering. Possibly the combination of the cranberry and sour apple flavors was just not appealing to me. My husband had the same flavor issues with the drink that I had. Read More

This is my favorite Martini but I use Sour Apple Vodka Crown Royal and Cranberry juice. The Crown Royal is what makes the drink. Read More

Out of all 3 jugs of martini's I set out at my party this one was the most popular. We call it a Washington Apple. The whiskey that you use makes a difference. You MUST use Crown Royal for the whiskey. Delicious! Read More

This is pretty good. The 1st time I had a Washington Apple was last night @ Bistro Bistro in Arlington Va. I tried to re-create it based on their ingrediants which is very close to your recipe: 1 oz Crown Royal 1 oz Sour Apple Pucker 1/2 oz DiSaronno Amaretto 2 oz Ocean Spray Cranberry Juice Cocktl 1 Maraschino cherry and splash of juice shake with ice in martini shaker;) serve in martini glass with cherry. They are very smooth. Yum. Thanks for sharing your recipe!!! I'm enjoying one right now (great with amaretto!!) Read More

My new daughter-in-law introduced the family to these as shots at Christmas. Although I normally don't like anything apple flavored except pie I loved these! She insisted on using Crown Royal whiskey although when we ran out we had one round with Jack Daniels - a little strong but good! Even helped my bronchitis!! Heh! Read More

We make these for tailgating shots. For a more apple flavor. Use apple juice instead of cranberry. Read More

Delicious! And I don't even like whiskey much! I used Canadian Club Whiskey (what I could afford). The whiskey definitely helps the martini taste like natural apple instead of candy apple like most other apple martinis. I think I will make my apple martinis like this from now on. Much more sophisticated! Read More

I prefer using Canadian Club as it is smoother than Crown Royal due to the aging process and ofcourse you must use the Sour Apple Pucker. So yummy!!!!! Read More
