Please note:

In order to make this apple pie spritzer cocktail we first infuse vodka with several different types of whole apples and several cinnamon sticks for one week.

After seven days of whole apples and cinnamon sticks infusing in vodka, we remove the apples and cinnamon sticks from the vodka and we also run it through a coffee filter to make sure it's clear to serve.

Always make sure to use an airtight container to infuse your vodka. Room temperature is ideal.

After one week, we are left with apple cinnamon infused vodka.

We store our infused vodka chilled in order to instantly make several great cocktail recipes. For instance, it can be served up in a martini glass, as is, with just a brown sugar rim; this is an apple cinnamon martini.
