Apple of my Eye Valentine's Day Martini

Valentine’s Day is a holiday that just begs for a very special cocktail to help you celebrate.

If you are cooking a romantic dinner at home or just whipping up a date night cocktail before heading out, this delectable martini we're calling Apple of my Eye is the perfect way to wow your special someone this Valentine's Day.

The 1911 vodka we’re using is actually made from apples all harvested in the upstate New York orchards called Beak and Skiff. Because apples contain natural sugars; once distilled this vodka has a nose of vanilla and caramel, and an ultra-smooth, delicate taste.



  • 3 ounces 1911 Vodka
  • 1 ounce Dry Vermouth
  • 2 blue cheese stuffed olives
  • 2 lemon twists

In a cocktail shaker filled with ice pour the vodka and vermouth. Shake until a frost forms on the outside of shaker.

Strain into two martini glasses and garnish with a blue cheese olive and a lemon twist.



Makes: 2 cocktails
