Come fall, it’s all about fresh-pressed apple cider or apple juice. There are so many ways to use it, and one of our favorite ways is making delicious apple cocktails!

We call this one poison apple because it shimmers with a dash of edible brew glitter, creating a beautiful sparkling effect!

We love anything that sparkle! Like these sparkling bikini grapefruit cocktails and sparkling ginger prosecco cocktail

Edible Glitter

And now, to make this a poison-shimmering cocktail, you’ll need to buy brew glitter. Brew glitter comes in many colors and is a 100% edible, food-grade, vegan, and kosher shimmer you can add to your cocktail.

Green Apple Vodka

We used green apple vodka to make this poisoned apple cocktail. It’s not overly sweet and goes really well with apple juice!

Using apple vodka rather than regular vodka is crucial in this recipe to really get a deep apple flavor. This cocktail taste like a fresh apple. It’s truly so good!

How to Properly Shake a Cocktail

One important part of the recipe is shaking, depending on the cocktail you’re making. For shaken cocktails, you’ll need a cocktail shaker filled 1/2 with ice.

Next, add in your cocktail ingredients and then shake vigorously for 20 seconds.

The ice needs to have time to melt and dilute the ingredients as well as chill the ingredients, so the cocktail is smooth going down.

So shake, shake, shake for 20 seconds for a well-blended cocktail!
