You can make this martini recipe with our Homemade Amaretto! Of course store bought Amaretto will do the trick but homemade is always the best!
A Summer Time Martini Recipe
One of my favorite things to do when the weather warms up is grilling. There’s something about juicy grilled chicken or a big steak on the grill that just makes everything taste so much better!
Like a hamburger cooked in a frying pan is fine, but the same hamburger cooked on the grill is ten times better!
I’ve been experimenting with grilling a lot more these days, I’m no expert BBQ guy by any means, not even close. I’m definitely an amateur as far as grilling goes. Just the basics – but I keep seeing new recipes that are a little more difficult that I’d love to try.
But what I do know how to do good is make a drink, like I do a couple of times a month for Food Fanatic. I’m always the guy in the kitchen shaking up different drinks to try when we have people over and that’s how this Seven Seas Martini was made.
Not only am I shaking up a killer martini recipe here, but I’m using my own homemade Amaretto too!
Why Make Homemade Amaretto?
Typically we find modern day Amaretto to be on the sweeter side, which is one of the reasons why making it from scratch is totally the way to go. You can balance out the level of sweetness that you like and how long you let the liquor steep. This homemade Amaretto isn’t very bitter at all, which is the way we like it.
Another reason that you should try making this recipe at home is because it is much more cost effective than buying a bottle at the store. Obviously stores mark up the prices of everything, so when you can save a few bucks and make a quality product at home you should!
The almond and fruity flavor in amaretto mix together really well with the orange flavors in blue curacao. Top it off with rum and a splash of pineapple juice and you’re right there on the beach.
Can I Make This Martini Recipe Ahead Of Time?
Definitely! And I even like it better when it’s made and chilled in the refrigerator for a couple of hours. So if you’re making this martini recipe for a party, double, triple or quadruple the amounts here in this recipe and keep it in a pitcher stashed in your fridge.
