LOL, you really don't need to justify yourself. Drink what you like drinking.
Hell, Lews drinks appletinis
Okay, two points I feel I must make here:
First of all, I haven't had one in months
Secondly, what I drink when I drink an appletini really isn't what anyone thinks of as an appletini. I adapted it from this recipe:
|The Appletini is Dead! Long live the Appletini! makes 3 drinks |
6 ounces gin (I used Plymouth)
3 ounces dry vermouth (I used Noilly Prat)
1 large (or 1 1/2 small) Granny Smith apple
1 dash orange bitters
lemon zest, for garnish
Core the apple and chop it, peel and all, into small chunks. Place the apple chunks in the canister of an iSi cream whipper, and add the gin and vermouth.
Seal the whipper, and get your stopwatch ready. Use a N2O charger to pressurize the whipper, and swirl the contents around for 30 seconds; at the end of 30 seconds, place the whipper on the counter and let it rest an additional 30 seconds.
Rapidly depressurize the whipper by placing a plastic container over the spout (to catch the spraying liquid) and squeeze the lever. Once the whipper is completely depressurized, strain the liquid into a large glass. Let it rest a few minutes before using — the flavor develops better with a little time.
Proceed as with a standard cocktail: place three ounces of liquid in a mixing glass, add a dash of bitters along with a bunch of ice, and stir until chilled. Strain into chilled cocktail glass; hit it with the lemon zest.
As you can see, it's not exactly vodka and green high-fructose corn syrup
