While some purists insist the Apple Martini is not a true martini, this innovative drink almost single-handedly drove the Martini Craze of the late ‘90s to early 2000s. According to barman’s lore, the cocktail was developed in 1994 at Lola’s, a watering hole in Los Angeles. Originally christened the Adam’s Apple Martini, the sweet cocktail spread like sweet wildfire, and was soon popping up on bar tops from New York City to Tokyo.
Blended with luxury grade Sencha, dried fruit and all natural flavors, this tea is all but guaranteed to spark a new
craze all its own. It’s delectable as a tea, but pair it with a bit of gin or vodka for a delicious cocktail. Cheers!
