✽ Sour Apple Schnapps: This green liqueur is a must-have for green apple enthusiasts. It provides the typical green apple flavor, a touch of sourness, and a beautiful green color. Popular brands include Mr. Stacks Sour Apple Schnapps and DeKuyper Sour Apple Pucker Liqueur.
✽ Caramel Vodka: This vodka not only adds a kick but also imparts a rich caramel flavor that pairs perfectly with the sour apple schnapps.
✽ Apple Cider: Infuse your shots with a genuine apple essence and the delightful flavors of fall spices. Cinnamon lovers will adore this ingredient. If apple cider is unavailable, apple juice can be used as a substitute.
✽ Lemon Juice: The addition of lemon juice provides a tanginess that complements the fresh green apple flavor. Freshly squeezed lemon juice works best to enhance the overall taste.
✽ Caramel Sauce: Though optional, it is highly recommended to dip the rims of the shot glasses into caramel sauce. Savouring a small bite of caramel after taking the shots is the epitome of perfection. You can also garnish with a small slice of green apple.
How to Make Caramel Apple Shots
In a cocktail shaker, combine 4 ounces of sour apple schnapps, 2 ounces of caramel vodka, 2 ounces of apple cider, and 1/2 ounce of lemon juice. Add a few ice cubes and shake vigorously for approximately 10 seconds to chill the mixture.
If desired, dip the rims of the shot glasses into caramel sauce or caramel syrup. For an ideal match, try using my caramel recipe made specifically for caramel apples.
Strain the mixture into the prepared shot glasses. Cheers!
