The Washington Apple is a great drink. In fact, it is so popular that you can find it being served as a Martini, a shooter, or either tall or short on the rocks. The taste is appealing and it can be easy to drink too many, what with a rich Canadian whiskey background, a sweet and sour apple, and refreshing cranberry.
If you go the tall route on the Washington Apple, add more cranberry juice to taste. Otherwise, in all versions the ingredients are equal - which also makes this an easy drink to remember.
