Although James Bond would never order this metrosexual martini, there are plenty of John Dorian types who consider this to be a man’s drink. I think Dorian is a pretty funny guy, and every once in a while I prepare this in the privacy of my own home.


  • 3 parts vodka
  • 1 part apple schnapps
  • 1 part Cointreau
  • Apple slice for garnish (optional)



  1. Chill cocktail glass in freezer.
  2. Mix vodka, apple schnapps and cointreau in shaker.
  3. Add ice.
  4. Cover.
  5. Shake well.
  6. Pour into chilled cocktail glass.
  7. Garnish with apple slice and enjoy.

What you should know

Some hardcore tini drinkers insist on serving this drink straight up and skip the ice. The choice is yours.
