New Amoretti Wine-Tini Recipe: Sour Apple Wine-tini
In early April, we re-introduced our basic wine-tini recipe, kicking off the new spring wine-tini season with the Amoretti Passion Wine-tini. Twelve days later, we followed up with another wine-tini creation, the Amoretti Pear Wine-tini.
Well, you can see where this is going… we’re back at it, and this time we’ve created a wild and unconventional wine-tini recipe out of our lip-puckering-astringent / maxillofacial- rictus-tightening Amoretti Sour Apple Martini Cocktail Mix. Seriously, this is some pretty sour stuff.
If you’re tired of your regular, plain old grocery store “sour apple” cocktail mix, then we think you’ll like our version on this classic flavor. (And, if you don’t, you should have no worries about being an Amoretti customer!) Ready to start mixing?
Amoretti Sour Apple Wine-tini
- 1 part vodka
- 1 part Amoretti Sour Apple Martini Cocktail Mix
- 3 parts Riesling
- Quartered green grapes
- Sliced kiwi
Slice the fruit, and add all ingredients to a large pitcher. Place in the refrigerator for several hours. Once the wine-tini has reached a low temperature, pull it out, give it a stir, add ice, and serve up some glasses! Note: Don’t add ice until you’re ready to serve as ice will dilute the mixture. Then again, if you want dilution, do the exact opposite!
As always, you can add any fruit to this wine-tini recipe. We love the sour bite of green grapes and the delectable sweetness of the kiwi. Also, these two fruits lend the drink that wild green color that makes it so unique. Feel free to add other green (and non-green) ingredients to the recipe… granny white apples, limes, etc.
Also, it’s worth pointing out that we chose Riesling for this particular wine-tini recipe because it leans more toward the drier side on the white wine spectrum. Definitely avoid the sweeter white wines like Moscato for this recipe. As much as we love our Californian Rieslings, they tend to be sweeter than Eastern U.S. Rieslings, so we have to recommend the latter for this particular cocktail. If you’re feeling adventurous, try a Semillon white wine with your Amoretti Sour Apple Wine-tini.
This wine-tini recipe is totally scalable, meaning you can whip it up for a party of 15 or a party of one. However, in our experience, bigger batches of this wine-tini tend to taste better because they allow for more fruity infusion to take place!
