Nothing says autumn quite like the abundance of apples you’ll see everywhere this time of year, from salads to sweets to—our favorite—cocktails! Today Caitlin is sharing a delicious seasonal recipe you’ll have to test out at your next cocktail party or girls’ night.
- 2 oz vodka
- 2 oz apple cider
- 1 tsp thyme-infused simple syrup
- Juice of half a lime
- Thyme (to garnish)
For the thyme-infused simple syrup: Mix equal parts sugar and water with a few sprigs of thyme over low heat until the sugar has dissolved. Let cool for 5 minutes while thyme steeps. Strain.
For the martini: Combine vodka, simple syrup, cider and lime juice in a shaker with ice. Shake vigorously and pour into a chilled glass. Garnish with thyme.
