Recipe For Appletini

I do not often post a recipe for an alcoholic drink, in fact, I think you might only find one other on my blog. But I have been inspired by Greg and Katherine over and Rufus’ Food and Spirits Guide. They post the most amazing concoction of alcoholic cocktails, and they even use booze in their food. People after my own heart as I love to cook with wine! When we went to the opening of Liam Tomlin Food at Leopard’s Leap we were served Appletini’s using their chenin blanc. The following week, I was assigned apples from Woolworths for their blog, and so I decided I would share with those readers the appletini cocktail. This recipe was however not included in the Chopping Board Chit Chat, but I think it is shareworthy. Both versions are very refreshing and very deceptive. I stopped at one, but a jugful would make a great start to a summer’s evening of entertaining.

thank you to each and over one who read my blog while we were away and left comments! I have replied to them all, and managed to read a few posts while we were away. Hopefully by the end of the week, life will be back to normal – I am heading off to unpack now!

One would usually make this by mixing one tot of vodka with apple juice but an alternative is to take 100mls of white wine and top it with apple juice – salute!

  4. Tandy, great post… and this is unrelated but HELPFUL. You have a box that is auto-checked on your comments section, “Notify me of follow-up comments via email.” This means you and all your readers will be flooded with unwanted comments via their inbox. Found you at View’s blog. Please share this with your WordPress followers, because WordPress hasn’t fixed it. Follow the directions step by step – starting with going to your Dashboard (hover on your blog name next to the “W” and the dropdown will appear).

    If you share, would you please credit my blog? I got the whole darned box to disappear. Hope this helps you… and especially your readership! Meantime, I’m off to try an Appletini… or three! Take care, Amy Barlow Liberatore

    1. I was in Scotland when WP changed the notification and I walked into our lodge and my phone which was on wifi went mad with the downloads of all the follow up comments on the ONE blog I had commented on. I will post this solution on my blog today, and of course credit you – you have saved me the time of figuring out how to do it so thanks 🙂 and thank you for the visit!

    1. I have never tried wine with orange juice – here a lot of people add coke to red wine but that is something I cannot stomach 🙂 Have a great day Celi!
