Channel your magic with this tangy tantalizing Apple-tini variation. Drawing upon inspiration from a witch’s wand and powerful witching herbs, this potent potion is a bewitching brew for magic, wishes, healing, and paying homage to ones witch lineage and path. Never has magic been so delicious!
This sassy, eclectic green libation combines the power of various woods often used in wands, in liquid libation form. Oak is one such ingredient, and luckily tasty bourbon is infused with its magic of protection, wishes, healing, and power. Another wood often used in wand crafting, walnut, enhances mental acuity and powers, assists wishes, and protection. And of course, the electric witchy green color comes from sour apple liqueur, adding in the symbolism of the pentagram, of divination, love, and a witch’s wisdom. Manifestive vanilla, bewitching rose, and purifying lunar-associated lemon top it all off for a most magically delicious concoction.
As always, if you don’t have an ingredient – don’t fret! Make this recipe work for you. There are tons of minimalistic appletini recipes online. You can use normal simple syrup instead of vanilla, forego the rose and walnut, or even try apple brandy instead of bourbon and sour apple liqueur. Do what works best for YOU! That’s the beauty of witchcraft.
For Simple, Easy Sipping: Cocktail making can be easy! Just swap ingredients or remove as you see fit. Use the material here & the ingredient reference list towards the bottom to help guide you in your own unique concoction, and get creative in swapping ingredients you may not have. I’ll offer suggestions along the way, so don’t get daunted if you don’t have something! Just as in life, there are limitless possibilities.
