Apple Pie Martini

Well, we had a few days of cooler weather here in Michigan – cool enough to make me realize that fall is not that far off!  The cool nights gave me a late-summer apple pie craving… though there was enough heat in the day to make the oven feel like just a little too much. Haha.  Do I did what any good bartender’s wife would: I put the apple pie flavor into a martini glass.  And drank it.  Delicious.
