In a cocktail shaker filled with ice, combine the apple liqueur, vodka and sweet and sour. Shake, then strain into a martini glass. Garnish with the apple slice.

Adapted from Lola’s. Soak the apple slice in lemon water to keep it from browning before serving.

If it’s entertaining, Jessica Gelt has likely covered it. Since joining the Los Angeles Times in 2003, she has written about television, music, movies, books, art, fashion, food, cocktails and more. She once played bass in a band with an inexplicably large following in Spain, and still gets stopped by fans (OK, maybe a fan) on the streets of Barcelona. She loves dive bars and very dry martinis with olives, though never simultaneously.
