How to Make the Best Appletini Ever, "An Apple A Day"

Cocktail trends come and go. I was talking with some friends, and realized that the appletini had quietly become passé a few years ago. I do have a certain nostalgia for them. I blame their popularity in my nascent drinking years.

I remember extensive discussions with friends about what places made the best ones. Folks, they were nothing more than vodka and Sour Apple Pucker. There wasn't a whole lot of difference between them. The "good" ones weren't much more interesting than a piece of hard candy, and the bad ones were reminiscent of floor cleaner. There must be a better way!

Of course there's a better way, or I wouldn't be writing about it right now.
