DeKuyper Sour Apple Pucker

Adding a Kick with Dekuyper Sour Apple Pucker


A staple ingredient at any fun bar is going to be a bottle of Dekuyper Sour Apple Pucker. The folks at Dekuyper have several different flavors of Puckers that can be unique add-ins so drinks, however the sour apple flavor is the easiest to find and is the most desired flavor in bars throughout the United States. You can make shots, martinis, mixed drinks and everything in between with this flavored liquor.

Creating Shots with Dekuyper Sour Apple Pucker

Today’s shot at the bar isn’t always limited to a one and a half ounce shot glass anymore. Some shots have extended to three and four ounces and are more involved than just pouring two kinds of alcohol into a glass and serving it. Now there’s shaking, straining, squeezing and even lighting on fire. Depending upon the bar, you can get pretty involved with the menu of shots.


Mixing one part of Dekuyper Sour Apple Pucker with another kind of schnapps can get you a plethora of different shots. Mixed with butterscotch schnapps will get you a Caramel Apple, with Grape and Cherry Schnapps you can get a Fruit Salad. There is also the possibility of taking the Pucker and mixing it with Cointreau and mixing it in a shaker with ice to get it cold and then straining it, which would be called the Green Tang.


For something more advanced, you can make Jell-o shots with a package of apple gelatin and equal parts water and Dekuyper Sour Apple Pucker. They can be poured into small cups and cooled overnight.

Your imagination is the limit with using Pucker at the bar. You can go directly to their website for some great drink recipes or you can create your own and name it after yourself. If it tastes good, no one will ever question if you made it up so you can choose to keep it a secret if you want to.

Classic Drinks with a Twist of Dekuyper Sour Apple Pucker

You can turn almost any drink into one with a shot of Dekuyper Sour Apple Pucker if you use your imagination. Some of the most popular include:

  • Martini

  • Margarita

A martini can be made just as you normally would, but right before you start to put the lid on the shaker, toss in a shot of the Sour Apple and you will get a deliciously blended martini with a delicious sweet kick. It is by far the most popular martini ordered in bars around the country.


Another variation is the Dekuyper Sour Apple Pucker Margarita. You will add your tequila, ice, and either Triple Sec or Grand Marnier into a pitcher (or blender for frozen ones) and then add a shot of the Pucker for the extra boost in flavor. It can still be salted (or a sugar rim) and garnished with a lime.


Once you’ve mastered the flavors of the Dekuyper Sour Apple Pucker you may be ready to move onto another flavor in the Pucker schnapps family.
