Sex On The Beach & Adam's Apple Martini

#ThirstyThursdays

D: Sex On The Beach for Steph; which is a classic. And I tried.. a very random one. I had intended to do an Appletini (EAAAAAAAAAAGLEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE), but with the recipes I found they recommended Apple Brandy. So I grabbed Calvados. Turns out I should have grabbed Sourpuss for a modern Appletini (Sour Apple vs Apple), and this is maybe a bit dated. It should be interesting though.

Verdict:

Sex On The Beach:

S: mmmmm sex on the beach is overrated… I mean who wants sand in all their cracks and crevices? BUT the drink is to DIE for. It’s a dangerous drink, as you can’t tell how much alcohol is in it, and it’s tasty. Tasty enough to order lots, without giving it another thought. It’s an easy mixed drink to make when friends are over.

Adam’s Apple Martini:

D: So that was mediocre. Definitely need to do the Sourpuss variation (for JD) another week. It does taste like apple, but it’s a sweet apple drink. I liken it to almost a Manhattan without the aftertaste of the bitters. Very sweet with a hint of Apple. On a sidenote, Calvados may be my favourite liquor; that stuff is amazing. I’m not sure how I hadn’t heard of it before, but it’s so smooth, with a strong Apple & Brandy flavour. Seriously, it’s on the expensive side, but try some, it’s great (neat, of course). Very different. So at least the bottle of Calvados won’t go to waste. Enjoy a piece of Normandy via delicious Appleness.
