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.
