Pre-Dinner Cocktails

For our pre-dinner cocktail, we are making Caramel Apple Cider Martinis.

These delicious martinis are easy and simple to make. Plus, they are delicious.

Pre-Dinner Cocktails Ingredients

This yummy cocktail includes natural Apple Cider, and to add the caramel flavor, you use Butterscotch Schnapps.

Combine these two ingredients with vodka, fresh lemon juice, and a graham cracker rim, for my new favorite martini.

Rim Your Glass

To rim the glass with graham cracker crumbs, you will want to dampen your rim with a lemon or lime slice to make the rim sticky. Just wrap a wedge around the rim and rub all the way around.

Place a layer of crumbs on a plate and press the edge of the glass into the crumbs.

Fill a shaker with ice and add lemon juice, apple cider, vodka, and butterscotch schnapps.

Shake and pour the martini into the glass.
