The Designated Appletini is a non-alcoholic version of the Apple Martini . It is perfect for those evenings when you're the designated driver, don't feel like drinking, or when you simply want a great cocktail without the booze.

The mix is an easy one that adds a little sweet and sour to apple juice. If you like, it can be spiked by adding gin or vodka also, although that does defeat the "designated" purpose.
