Spiced Apple Martini

WOW!  I have to say, this was a tasty drink!  It is potent so be careful!  It doesn't taste as strong as it is.  But it is amazing!
Marcus Samuelsson's Spiced Apple Martini

For the Apple-Spiced Simple Syrup:
1 teaspoon cinnamon, ground
1 teaspoon ginger, ground
1 teaspoon allspice, ground
1 teaspoon nutmeg, ground (freshly ground if possible)
1 cup granulated sugar
1 slice of a red apple, 1/4 inch thick
1/2 cup water

For the Drink:
2 ounces SKYY Vodka
1/2 ounce of above syrup
1/2 ounce lime juice
2 dashes angostura bitters
Slice of apple (for garnish)

For the Apple-Spiced Simple Syrup: Place all ingredients in small saucepan. Bring to boil. (Leftover simple syrup can be strained into airtight container, cooled and refrigerated. It will stay fresh for up to 2 weeks.)

Add 1/2 ounce of simple syrup, the vodka, lime juice and bitters in a cocktail shaker. Add ice and shake well. Strain into chilled coupe glass and garnish with apple.
