how to make apple cider martinis

Start by preparing the glasses. Run a lemon wedge around the edge of the glasses, this will ensure our sugar coating sticks.

Then dip the glasses, lemon side down, into a small bowl of sugar and cinnamon.

I sometimes can’t find my cocktail shaker so a cool CHIC TIP: Is to shake your cocktails in a mason jar with a lid! Pour the contents into the jar, seal it tight with the lid and give it a shake! It’s a quick fix when you can’t seem to locate your cocktail shaker!

Pour in the apple cider, vodka, whipped cream vodka, hazelnut or almond liqueur, simple syrup and ice. Cover and shake until the cocktail is well chilled. Strain into the prepared glasses.
