More About This Recipe
- Back in the day when I first started testing my luck with cocktails, I would use Puckers to add a little splash of flavor or color.
I always strive to make drinks that use super fresh ingredients, but if time is an issue and you don't have fresh fruit on hand, it's okay to take a few short cuts. Recently, I had a hankering to create an apple cocktail that's extremely easy to make and doesn't take much prep time.
I also wanted it to be festive for St. Patrick's Day.
I added Sour Apple Pucker and apple juice into a cocktail shaker and shook it with ice, so it was nice and chilled. It wasn't too strong and tasted similar to one of those caramel apple lollipops! To add a little dash of splash to the drink, I dropped in a Fruit Gusher!
You can also garnish the rim of the glass with edible gold glitter to add even more St. Patty's Day charm.
