30ml white tequila

30ml vodka

2 green apples (peeled and cored)

2 limes

30ml sugar syrup

4 tablespoons cloudy apple juice

1 green chilli (optional)

Ice cubes


  1. To make the syrup, bring 1/2 cup of sugar into a saucepan and bring it to a slow boil. Make sure all of the sugar has been boiled by continuously stirring the mixture together. Allow it to cool before preparing the rest of the cocktails.
  2. Place the chopped and cored apples into a food processor, with the juice of one lime. Mix well until you form a fine pulp, then transfer to a cocktail shaker.
  3. Now add the tequila, vodka, remaining lime juice, sugar syrup and ice into a cocktail shaker. If you don’t have a cocktail shaker, simply use 2 glasses to finely shake the mixture.
  4. Pour into glasses and add 2-3 fine slices of chilli if you want your drink to have a little more body.
