  • 1/2 ounce fresh apple juice
  • 1 soft ginger candy

Step 1In a cocktail shaker, combine the vodka and ginger. Using a muddler or the back of a spoon, mash the ginger well. Add the lemon juice, simple syrup and apple juice. Fill the cocktail shaker with ice, shake until well chilled, and strain into a martini glass. Garnish with ginger candy.

Note: From Literati II. To make a simple syrup, combine equal parts sugar and water and heat until the sugar dissolves. Simple syrup can be kept, covered and refrigerated, for several weeks. Flash-pasteurized apple cider, available at well-stocked supermarkets, can be substituted for fresh apple juice.
