    This is my restaurant Warszawa’s recipe for a delicious Apple Martini with a Polish twist. It is a variation on a common Polish drink called szarlotka, vodka and apple juice, which made Żubrówka a favorite among Polish university students.

    For a totally different taste experience, you can use Żubrówka to make your favorite martini, or just drink it straight from a small frozen glass. Remember to sip slowly to savor the great taste of Żubrówka and to keep your socks on—and always keep your vodka in the freezer.


    2 ounces ice-cold Żubrówka
    4 ounces chilled sparkling apple cider
    Twist of lime
    Sprig of mint

    Stir the vodka and cider together and pour into a frozen martini glass. Garnish with a twist of lime and a mint spring.

    Elina O’Lague opened Warszawa in 1973 next to the famous Chez Panisse in Berkeley, California. The restaurant was the only one of its kind in the Bay Area at the time and an immediate success. In 1979 Elina relocated Warszawa to Santa Monica. In 2000 the New York Times picked her restaurant as one of the top six in Santa Monica.
