Washington Apple history and origin:

The history and origin of the Washington Apple cocktail are a bit murky, as is often the case with cocktail histories. However, there are a few theories about its creation and how it got its name.

One theory suggests that the Washington Apple was created in the 1980s during the popularity of flavored schnapps and cocktails. It’s believed to have originated in the United States, possibly in the state of Washington, hence the name. However, there isn’t concrete evidence to support this theory.

Another theory is that the Washington Apple shot was invented by a bartender named Adam Strum at the China Club in New York City in the late 20th century. According to this story, the drink was created as a tribute to the Big Apple, New York City, rather than the state of Washington.

Regardless of its exact origins, the Washington Apple has become a popular cocktail enjoyed by many due to its delicious blend of whiskey, sour apple schnapps, and cranberry juice. Its sweet and tart flavors make it a favorite among cocktail enthusiasts.
