The BIG but little Apple that could…

It may look like a martini, smell like a martini, but this little cocktail packs a punch with less alcohol! You may have seen me whip up a few LOW-ish martini’s on Liquid Culture before, and this follows the same trend. Stirred up with a special Sweet Potato Shochu, Cocchi Americano, Calvados, Fino Sherry and Smoked Apple bitter.
