Our Registered Dietitian, Katie Haarala, might approve of this one. Just in time for the season of over-indulgence, we bring you a cocktail that is only about a quarter of the calories of a regular martini AND it’s made with real apple juice!


  • 2 oz Apple Vodka
  • 3 oz Light Apple Juice

Make a fancy rim for your martini glass by lightly wetting the rim of the glass with water or apple juice and dipping it in a mixture of cinnamon and sugar. You can use a cinnamon stick for a festive stirrer.

Then, add all the ingredients to a cocktail shaker with ice and shake for 10-15 seconds. Strain this mixture into your fancy glass and enjoy.
