Sweet and spicy! If you like unique drink recipes, then you have to try this Strawberry Chili Martini. Seriously – it’s that good.
Imagine traveling to ancient China. You see a dragon blowing a stream of fiery breath into the night sky. If that conflagration of bright colors against a dark, muted backdrop could be translated into a flavor, we’re sure it would be the sweet spiciness of this Strawberry Chili Martini.
Part of what makes this one of our most compelling drink recipes is that you can vary the heat and adjust the spice to your – or your guest’s – taste. Unique drink recipes such as the Strawberry Chili Martini are always a hit at any dinner party, but it’s the inclusion of Amoretti Organolicious Premium Agave Nectar that makes this martini something special.
Amoretti Organolicious Premium Agave Nectar, which is made from organic agave nectar, infuses a flavor that was prized among the indigenous peoples of Southern Mexico. Thousands of years ago, this flavor was revered among the people of that region, and today we understand the many beneficial properties that can be yielded from organic agave nectar.
The use of premium organic agave nectar by Amoretti is an excellent way to balance the spice without artificial sweeteners. It’s a subtle difference that makes a big impact. The following recipe takes only 10 minutes to whip up, and makes two delicious drinks.
Strawberry Chili Martini
- 6 sliced strawberries
- 2 slices of fresh jalapeño peppers
- ½ lime
- 1 tablespoon of Amoretti Organolicious Premium Agave Nectar
- 3 ounces of vodka (gin or tequila may also be used)
- 1 ounce of orange-flavored brandy liqueur
Use the back of a spoon to mash the strawberries and jalapeño peppers together in a cocktail shaker. Once thoroughly blended, squeeze in the lime juice, and stir to combine.
Now it’s time for the good stuff. Add the Amoretti Organolicious Premium Agave Nectar, liquor, and orange-flavored brandy liqueur. Fill the shaker with ice. Now you’re ready to shake!
Be sure to shake this drink extremely well to allow all of the unique flavors to infuse with one another. Feel free to sample the drink and add additional jalapeño or organic agave nectar to taste.
Once you have your desired levels of sweetness and spice, strain the drink into two martini glasses. You may garnish the Strawberry Chili Martini with a strawberry and jalapeño slice for good measure. Enjoy!
