Washington Apple Drink

The Washington Apple Cocktail is a real treat. This drink is fruity and doesn’t burn like some cocktails can. You might wonder can a drink with pineapple juice and cranberry juice tastes like its namesake. Well, yes, it sure does!

This apple-inspired drink is perfect for people who drink casually. Flavored with apple liqueur, 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.

How to Make a Washington Apple

  1. Thoroughly chill all ingredients. This cocktail is not shaken with ice so the ingredients need to be cold before mixing the drink.
  2. Combine all ingredients in a cocktail shaker and shake to combine.
  3. Pour into shot glasses, martini glasses, or over ice in rocks glasses.

Don’t hesitate to try this cocktail. It’s so simple to make and is one of the most refreshing whiskey cocktails.

      No, there isnt….but there is a drink that you replace the cranberry with pineapple and it’s really good. I forget the name of it….its similar to an applesauce shot.
