  • Jigger
  • Cocktail shaker
  • Shot glasses
  • Knife
  • Cutting board


  • 2 1/2 oz vodka
  • 2 oz apple schnapps
  • 1 oz pineapple juice
  • 1 oz lime juice
  • 1 strawberry optional for garnish
  • 1 Granny Smith apple optional for garnish


  • Chill your shot glasses in the fridge for at least 10 minutes. For extra chilled glasses, wet them beforehand and immediately chill them in the freezer.
  • In a cocktail shaker, add the vodka, apple schnapps, pineapple juice, and lime juice with 2-3 ice cubes. Shake well for 1 minute or so. 
  • Prep the garnish:
    Cut the strawberry into thin slices (one for each glass). Make a slit at the bottom so that it can sit on the brim of the glass. 
    Then, cut the apple into thin slices (one for each glass). Cut a small triangle at the bottom, close to the skin, so it can sit on the brim of the glass. 
  • Pour the mixed liquid into the chilled shot glasses. Garnish with an apple and strawberry slice.


  • If  making the shots in advance, rub a bit of lime against the apple slices to prevent them from browning.
