This is a Caramel Apple Martini to celebrate the fall apple harvest. It has a cinnamon sugar rim and is actually quite sweet. I would definitely characterize this as a great dessert drink. It uses fresh apple cider, caramel vodka and butterscotch schnapps. Rather addictive if you like a sweet drink!
During the harvest, the apples are carefully handpicked and sorted to ensure only the best quality fruit makes it to the market. The apple harvest is not only an important time for farmers, but it is also an opportunity for families and friends to come together and enjoy the crisp autumn air while picking apples.
With an addition of some rather sweet elements to compliment the delightful apple taste, this martini is sure to curb your sweet tooth.
According to LearningLiftOff, the tradition of bobbing for apples dates back to the Roman invasion of Britain when the army decided to pair their own celebrations with traditional Celtic festivals. The Romans brought an apple tree to the festivities because they believed that a fruit tree represented Pomona, who is the goddess of fruit and trees.
Timeline said: Early settlers mainly used inedible, bitter apples to make cider: “The chief purpose of the colonial fruit garden was not to grow fruit for the table, but rather to secure a supply of ‘most excellent and comfortable drinks,’” according to the Brooklyn Botanical Garden (BBG). By 1905, the United States Department of Agriculture published a bulletin containing 17,000 different apple names across some 14,000 varieties; they ranged from the size of a cherry to bigger than a grapefruit.
