The Designated Appletini is a non-alcoholic version of the Apple Martini . It is perfect for those evenings when you're the designated driver, don't feel like drinking, or when you simply want a great cocktail without the booze.

The mix is an easy one that adds a little sweet and sour to apple juice. If you like, it can be spiked by adding gin or vodka also, although that does defeat the "designated" purpose.

What You'll Need

  • 2 ounces apple juice (freshly pressed)
  • 1/2 ounce simple syrup
  • 1/4 ounce lemon juice
  • Garnish: sugar (for rimming)
  • Garnish: 1 apple slice

How to Make It

  1. Rim a chilled cocktail glass with sugar.
  2. Pour the ingredients into a cocktail shaker filled with ice.
  3. Shake well.
  4. Strain into the prepared glass.
  5. Garnish with an apple slice.
