  • squeeze of lemon juice
  • 4 tbsp cloudy apple juice
  • 2 pinches of ground cinnamon
  • handful ice cubes
  • 200ml bottle sparkling wine
  • ½ small apple , cored and thinly sliced

Method

  • STEP 1

    Pour the aquavit or gin into a cocktail shaker or large jam jar. Add a good squeeze of lemon juice, the apple juice, a generous pinch of cinnamon and a handful of ice cubes, pop on the lid and shake well.

    Strain into 2 fluted glasses and top up with sparkling wine. Sprinkle the apple slices with the remaining cinnamon and thread onto 2 cocktail sticks. Balance a cocktail stick across the rim of each glass and serve straight away.

RECIPE TIPS
SNAPS

Swedes call all strong liquors ‘snaps’ and are particularly fond of them neat with fish and seafood. This cocktail uses a punchy aquavit scented with caraway, aniseed and fennel, which works well with apple and cinnamon. If you can’t find aquavit, quality gin is a good substitute.
