Red Apple Delight


Red Apple Delight is a refreshing drink to be enjoyed in lovely cocktail glasses. Dust off your best glasses and prepare for a treat! For a lighter recipe, blend your own juices or use sugar-free options.

Preparation Time: 15 mins
Makes 4 glasses
Ingredients
  • 1 1/2 cups apple juice
  • 3/4 cups sweet lime juice
  • 4 teaspoons grenadine syrup
  • 1/4 cup carbonated water
  • 1 cup crushed ice
For The Garnish
  • 4 apple fans
Method
  • Combine the first three ingredients in a cocktail shaker and shake well.
  • Fill each cocktail glass with crushed ice and pour equal quantity of the juice, leaving a half an inch at the top of the glass.
  • Top each glass with carbonated water and stir.
  • Serve immediately garnished with apple fans.
To make apple fans:
  • Starting from one end of a quartered apple piece, make 4 to 5 slits at regular intervals till 1 centimeter away from the other end.
  • Gently open the slices to form a fan.
  • Pierce with a toothpick from the intact end to hold the slices and place on the glass.
