New Martini Recipe: Lemon Cherry Twist Martini
As summer approaches, we’ve been thinking about how we’ll be cooling down here in Southern California (with our beloved cocktail shakers, of course). So far, we’ve come up with a myriad of options, but few are more refreshing than the Lemon Cherry Twist Martini. If you like to make martinis that are a little off the beaten path, then you’ll certainly enjoy this martini recipe.
We’ve drawn from the syrupy sweet taste of maraschino cherries, the tart and refreshing bite of our lemon drop martini cocktail mix, and the rich fragrance of Amoretti Premium Jasmine Syrup to produce this one-of-a-kind martini recipe.
Amoretti Lemon Cherry Twist Martini Recipe
Add all ingredients (sans lime) to a cocktail shaker filled with ice. Shake vigorously for up to 10 seconds. When making this martini, it’s okay to give a little extra shake than you normally would since some ice dilution might actually be desirable. Strain and pour the contents into a chilled martini glass and add the lime zest as a rim garnish.
Why You’ll Love This Recipe
We believe that a great martini recipe starts with great ingredients. So, we think you’ll love this recipe for each and every one of the ingredients. A bold claim? We don’t think so. We’re proud to stand behind every one of our gourmet-quality ingredients. In fact, if for any reason you’re disappointed with the taste or the quality of a product you purchased from Amoretti, all you have to do is let us know and we’ll take care of the situation!
That being said, our lemon drop martini cocktail mix, for starters, is one of a kind. Many Amoretti fans believe it’s the perfect balance of sweet and sour. Truth be told, you don’t even need any beverage syrups if you have a bottle of vodka and a bottle of Amoretti Lemon Drop Martini Cocktail Mix.
Of course, adding the Maraschino Cherry Syrup is where things really start to get good! Our maraschino cherry syrup has a taste unlike any other. Plus, you can use it for other recipes like the Manhattan or our cherry hot chocolate. Learn all about the maraschino cherry here.
Lastly, Amoretti Premium Jasmine Syrup balances out the cocktail with a lovely, exotic bouquet of floral flavor. You have to try it to see for yourself!
