Almond Biscotti Martini

Day 193



Almond Biscotti Martini
4.5 shots out of 5


It's Sunday night!  School starts tomorrow and I have to say that I am kinda excited.  I'll have my 2 boys back in school and our oldest girl will be going to Tiny Tots a couple days a week.  It will be nice to be back in the routine of sending the kids off to school again.

I gave tonight's cocktail 4.5 shots out of 5.  Um, YUM!!!!  This is a very good cocktail!  I haven't had a biscotti in a long time, but from what I remember this cocktail definitely does remind me of them.  This is my first official cocktail using coffee too, which is kinda exciting.  I'm just glad that we didn't polish off the entire pot this morning.  The vanilla vodka, I think, is a perfect flavored vodka to make this cocktail with.  My husband LOVES biscottis, therefore I had to share tonight's cocktail with him.....so maybe I should make another one to make up for it?

Here is the recipe for an Almond Biscotti Martini:

  • 2 oz vanilla vodka
  • 1/2 oz amaretto
  • 1/2 oz coffee liqueur
  • 1/2 oz coffee
  • 1/4 oz milk
In a shaker add ice and all of the ingredients above.  Shake it up good to give it a good chill.  Strain your cocktail into a chilled martini glass.

Here is a photo of the end result:

Here's to a great weekend and a great cocktail to end this great weekend.

Cheers!!
