Almond Martini Recipe
Amaretto almond liqueur is one of the most loved Italian fruit liqueur and adding a shot of it in a vodka martini turns it into a delicious almond martini. Smooth and delicate drink!
Preparation Time: 2 minutes
Serves: 1 serving
Glassware: Cocktail glass
|2 oz (60 ml) Vodka|
|1 oz (30 ml) Amaretto Almond Liqueur|
|¼ oz (7 ml) Dry Vermouth|
- Take all ingredients in the mixing glass and fill it with crushed ice up to 2/3rd capacity. Put the cap on and shake thoroughly for approx 30-35 seconds so that melting water from ice dilutes the drink as well as chills it.
- Fine strain the drink in to sugar rimmed chilled serving glass. (Drop couple of almonds in the drink for more appropriate garnish)
Tips and Variations:
- The original almond martini is a concoction of 4 parts vodka, 1 part lemon juice and almond syrup each and 2 parts of apple juice shaken with ice and served in cocktail glass.
