New Amoretti Martini Recipe: Lemon Elderberry Martini

This delicious martini is perfect for summer

This spring, we’re excited to introduce a delicious and refreshing martini recipe that’s guaranteed to be different from any you’ve tried before. We’ve found that a lot of purportedly “refreshing” martinis take on an overly sweet and hyper-synthetic “floral” taste. Vodka with a sugary blast of generic “floral” sweetener isn’t our idea of refreshing, and we doubt it’s what you have in mind either.

So, that being the case, we took it upon ourselves to create a martini recipe that sets a standard for refreshing. By using our delicious Amoretti Lemon Drop Martini Cocktail Mix, we’ve given this martini a tart base with a little bit of citrus-y bite.

By adding our one-of-a-kind Amoretti Premium Elderberry Blossom Syrup to the martini recipe, this cocktail is elevated from the status of ‘standard’ to ‘remarkable’. Our elderberry blossom syrup is vaguely reminiscent of the floral qualities found in a fine gin. However, don’t expect gin in drink syrup form (we wouldn’t do that to you).

Lastly, this fine martini recipe is finished off with a robust bouquet of sage leaves, which lend an herbal, savory taste that’s distinct and refined. Do not… we repeat… do not use dried sage off your spice rack in this martini recipe. There’s a world of difference between this kind of sage and fresh, tender sage leaves! So, without further ado, the martini recipe…
