’Tis the season for Apple™ picking. Sigh, if only the iPhone 5 grew on trees. In honor of this fall’s hottest gadget, enjoy these drinks inspired by the company that monopolizes your technological needs.
Apple Pie Shooters
Knock back a few of these sweet shots, but don’t forget to make one for Siri.
- 1 oz. vanilla vodka
- 1 oz. apple cider
- Whipped cream
Pour apple juice and vodka into shot glass, top with whipped cream, sprinkle cinnamon onto tongue, and consume.
Because you’ll need something to spill on that clunky iPhone 4S to justify buying the new one.
- 2 oz. apple brandy
- 2 oz. apple juice
- 2 oz. cranberry juice

Pour over ice, garnish with slice of lime.
While enjoying this twist on the classic Martini, don’t forget to toast to the ingenuity of the late, great Steve Jobs (read: platform for Fruti Ninja, Angry Birds), without which you would not have been able to ignore—and therefore disassociate yourself from—awkward social situations since 2007.
- 1 oz. apple schnapps
- ½ oz. butterscotch schnapps
