The Wolverine cocktail is a crisp and refreshing drink, perfect for those who enjoy a fruity yet not overly sweet beverage.

Ingredients

Equipment

  • Highball Glass
  • Bar Spoon
  • Jigger
  • Drinking Straws

Instructions

Prepare the Glass:

  • Start by filling a highball glass to the top with ice cubes. Using plenty of ice keeps the drink chilled and dilutes it slightly as you sip, enhancing the flavors.

Add the Ingredients:

  • Using a jigger, measure and pour 50 ml of dry vermouth over the ice. Vermouth adds a sophisticated, aromatic base to the cocktail.
  • Follow with 50 ml of Sprite, which introduces a sweet and fizzy element, balancing the dryness of the vermouth.
  • Top up the glass with 100 ml of apple juice. Choose a good quality apple juice for the best flavor, as it is the main ingredient and gives the cocktail its fruity character.

Mix the Cocktail:

  • Gently stir the mixture with a bar spoon. This combines the ingredients without losing too much carbonation from the Sprite.

Garnish and Serve:

  • Garnish the drink with three apple wedges on the rim of the glass or floating on top. This not only looks attractive but also enhances the apple flavor as you get closer to finishing your drink.
  • Serve with a couple of drinking straws for easy sipping.

Notes

Tips for Serving:
If serving at a party, you can prepare a large batch of the vermouth and apple juice mixture in advance. Add the Sprite just before serving to maintain its fizziness.
For a slightly different twist, try using sparkling apple cider in place of apple juice and Sprite for an even more apple-forward cocktail.
The Wolverine cocktail is a delightful mix that’s both easy to make and enjoy. Its refreshing qualities make it a great choice for various occasions, from casual get-togethers to more formal events. Enjoy this tasty beverage as you relax and unwind, or serve it to impress guests with your cocktail-making skills.
