Using Martini Mix

Unlike sour apple vodkas and rums, which can be expensive, sour apple mix is fairly cheap. Since it can be used in a number of different drinks, you don't have to worry about blending it unsatisfactorily with most types of liquor. Best of all, the possibilities with the mix are utterly endless. You'll be able to add a splash to cocktails to give them a little bit of zing, or use it as the base for an apple-flavored martini creation. The choices are yours entirely, and it can be a lot of fun figuring out your favorites.
