PAMA™ Martini

Pomegranate liqueur makes a delicious and intoxicating martini. You can use any kind of pomegranate liqueur with this but we like to use PAMA™. These can be strong  so you can add less of the ingredients if you like or add ice to your drink. Either way it’s a great unique martini!
Here’s Sluggo about to enjoy one!

PAMA Martini

INGREDIENTS:
1½ ounce PAMA Pomegranate Liqueur
1½ ounce premium vodka
¼ ounce orange liqueur

DIRECTIONS:
Combine all ingredients into a cocktail shaker with ice. Shake vigorously. Strain into a chilled martini glass. Garnish with lemon peel or lemon slice.

Key Lime Pie Martini

Yes, we like martinis. You will be seeing many martini recipes in this blog. John is always looking for a new creation to try. This one is just so good you can’t drink just one! When we’ve made them in the past we didn’t rim the glasses with anything but you can definitely rim them with crushed graham cracker crumbs. These martinis go down so smoothly. Great for a warm humid day in the tropics. You can pretend! The recipe ingredients are listed in ‘parts’ so just make the ‘parts’ consistent. For example the recipe calls for 2 parts of one item and 1 part of another. You can make 1 part = 2 ounces, which is usually safest. A shot glass is usually 2 ounces. Just multiply the ingredients for how many drinks you’re making. So for one drink 2 parts = 4 ounces and 1 part = 2 ounces. We use those little Oxo measuring cups for our bar, they are the same as a shot glass but easier to pour and measure. So go check the liquor store for the key ingredient in this recipe and pretend you’re in Key West!

INGREDIENTS:

2 parts KeKe Beach Key Lime Cream Liqueur*

1 part vanilla vodka**

Splash of heavy cream***


DIRECTIONS:

1. Chill martini glasses in freezer or refrigerator beforehand. If you need to chill quickly or if no room in freezer or refrigerator just put some ice in the glasses and fill with water to chill. When ready to use wet glass edges with a lime and then rim glasses with graham cracker crumbs (if you want the crumbs.)

2. Fill a cocktail shaker about one-third with ice. Pour ingredients into shaker and shake vigorously so that a frothy white head forms when poured. Pour into prepared glasses and garnish with a lime!

3. Sit back and relax!!

*KeKe Beach Key Lime Cream Liqueur comes in a 750ml solid white bottle, usually found with the liqueurs.

**If you don’t have vanilla vodka use plain vodka, it comes out just as good.

***If you don’t have heavy cream you can use half-and-half. The cream is better though.

Lemonade Stand Martini

Lemonade isn’t just for summertime anymore! And there is nothing more refreshing than this delicious lemony treat to sip and pretend you are on a tropical isle somewhere. Close your eyes while sipping and you will be transported to the coast of Italy. This is our new favorite martini and I think you will all love it as well. So simple to make and after that first sip you will be hooked. Just be careful because these may go down very smooth but they pack a hidden kick. The key ingredient is limoncello. Limoncello can have an alcohol content of anywhere between 25%-35%! Not too shabby huh! So whip up a batch this weekend and forget the cold weather, forget work, forget the kids…Relax and enjoy! The recipe is for one drink so if you have four people just multiply the ingredients by four and so on.

INGREDIENTS:

1 ounce limoncello (your choice, we like Pallini)

1 ounce vodka (your choice)

1 ounce simple syrup

1 ounce fresh lemon juice (fresh makes it soooo much better)

DIRECTIONS:

1. Fill a cocktail shaker about ¼-1/3 full with ice.

2. Add ingredients to shaker and shake!

3. Pour into chilled martini glass. You can rim the glass with colored sugar if you like. Add a slice of lemon to glass.

4. Sit back and enjoy!
