Have you tried the Washington Apple Cocktail? It is a flavorful cocktail made with whiskey, Apple Pucker, cranberry juice, and pineapple juice. You can enjoy this as a cocktail or a shot!
The Washington Apple Cocktail is a real treat. This cocktail is fruity and doesn’t burn like some cocktails can. You might wonder can a drink with pineapple juice, and cranberry juice tastes like it’s namesake.
This apple inspired drink is perfect for people who drink casually. Flavored with apple, cranberry juice, and pineapple juice it really blends well with the whiskey.
Did you know this drink can be enjoyed in many different ways?
You control the amount of alcohol depending on how you choose to make the drink, a shooter, or a martini is stronger than a drink with ice. If you want to you could add a bit of club soda or some Sprite with the drink.
This classic whiskey cocktail can be enjoyed:
- As a shooter
- As a martini – no ice
- As a cocktail – with ice
If you want to enjoy this as a martini simply pour the drink into a chilled martini glass. This will make multiple shooters if desired. My personal preference is to pour the drink over ice, sometimes I had a touch of club soda for a little fizz.
What type of whiskey should you use?
The Washington Apple cocktail is often made with Crown Royal Whiskey, a well-known Canadian whiskey. You don’t have to use the Crown Royal brand. If you don’t have Crown Royal on hand, other brands like Weller would be a good choice.
As a personal rule, if I am mixing a cocktail with lots of ingredients, I use less expensive brands because you won’t get all of the nuances of flavor a more premier brand may have.
What you need to make this drink
- Whiskey (Crown Royal recommended)
- Sour Apple Pucker
- Cranberry Juice
- Pineapple Juice
Combine all ingredients in a cocktail shaker and shake to combine.
Don’t hesitate to try this cocktail, it’s so simple to make, and it makes one of the most refreshing whiskey cocktails.
