Washington Apple Shot

The Washington Apple Shot is a slammable version of the Washington Apple cocktail, nothing more, nothing less. Its equal-parts recipe of Canadian whisky, sour apple schnapps and cranberry juice can be scaled up or down, depending on the occasion. If you’re looking to pull back the pucker flavor of this shot, substitute calvados for sour apple schnapps and give it a different name—maybe something French like Le Washington Apple Shot.


  • 3/4 oz Canadian whisky
  • 3/4 oz Sour apple schnapps
  • 3/4 oz Cranberry juice
  • 1 splash Club soda


  1. Add the whisky, schnapps and juice into a shaker with ice and shake until well-chilled.

  2. Strain into a shot glass.

  3. Top with the club soda.
