Every now and then a good martini fits the bill, especially during the holidays when there’s a little more time to enjoy when socializing at celebrations and gatherings.
This beautiful martini was designed for Teenie Cakes. It’s a smooth, sweet and sour martini concoction with very subtle hints of lemon and apples combined with the sweet, syrupy juice of maraschino cherries.
Makes 1 Maraschino Splash Tini
Tools: Martini Shaker, shot glass
sugar for martini glass rim
lemon -or- lime, wedge
4 shots Smirnoff® Limoncello Tuscan Lemonade
1/2 shot DeKuyper® Sour Apple Pucker Schnapps
1/2 shot Vodka
1 teaspoon Maraschino Cherry juice
1 Maraschino Cherry for garnish
Note: 1 Shot = 1.5 US Fluid Ounces
Rimming the Martini Glass
Spread a couple tablespoons of granulated sugar on a small plate.
Moisten the outer rim of the glass with a lemon or lime wedge. With the rim facing down toward the plate of sugar, hold the glass at a 45 degree angle and roll the outer rim of the glass on the plate until lightly coated around the entire glass rim. Gently shake the glass to release any excess sugar.
Mix the Martini
Fill a martini shaker half full with ice cubes. Add the Limoncello, Sour Apple Pucker Schnapps, Vodka and Maraschino Cherry Juice. Cover the shaker, holding the lid with one finger, shake vigorously for 10 seconds and pour into prepared sugar-rimmed martini glass.
Drop a full-sized maraschino cherry into the martini glass.
