Have You Ever Wondered?

Have you ever wondered what it would be like to drink an apple pie? Well let me tell you, it's pretty stinkin' good.

We have had some Navan Natural Vanilla Liqueur sitting around for a long time and haven't really used it at all. Sometimes I will open it and just smell it, it smells soooo good:). It doesn't do me any good just sitting there, smelling good though. So I googled it to find some good recipes to try out and here's what I got.

Natural Apple Pie Martini

You will need:

  • 1 part(s) Navan Natural Vanilla Liqueur
  • 1 part(s) Vodka
  • 3 part(s) Apple Cider
  • 1 tsp. cinnamon
  • 1 squirt lime juice
  • 1 tbsp sugar, fine or sugar in the raw
Run a lime wedge around the rim and coat rim in sugar. Combine first 5 ingredients over ice in a shaker and shakeshakeshake. Strain into your martini glass.

It also suggested warming the cider and serving it in a mug.

I apologize for my extremely messy kitchen table (I feel like I could apologize for that in every picture..oh well:)). This drink is amazing. It really truly tastes and smells like apple pie. Maybe next time I'll add a little nutmeg. Go make one, or come over and I'll make you one. Apple Pie Martinis for everyone!!!!


  1. Mmmm sounds delicious! Phil made his own cinnamon infused vodka and mixed it with cider for a great martini. I'm sure that vanilla flavor in yours is great.

  2. Tracy, Phil needs to share:). How does he make it? Using cinnamon sticks? Does he have any special tricks? I'd like to try that. If he likes to do that, you guys should try making your own vanilla (if you haven't already).

  3. Too funny! I just told him the other day we should do that, I saw it on another blog! All he did for the Cinnamon Vodka was put about 3-4 cinnamon sticks in a full bottle of Vodka and let them soak for about 2 weeks, it turns the vodka a nice tan/brown color the longer it's in there but the sticks turn white and look unappetizing so he took them out once it was nice and "cinnaminny"
