Most of us like a little something sweet after a good meal, whether it's a decadent dessert, a piece of candy, or a glass of dessert wine. I'm a sucker for creamy, sweet after-dinner drinks, like a white russian or a sip of Adult Chocolate Milk. Lately I've been getting creative with my dessert drinks, starting with this honey roasted martini.
I tore the recipe out of a Grey Goose ad a while back, though I admit I used Skyy Vanilla instead of Grey Goose, since that's what I had on hand (really, who needs two kinds of vanilla vodka in the liquor cabinet?). Though this cocktail is certainly sweet, it also packs a decadent punch reminiscent of almond truffles or nutty coffee. Blend with ice, as the recipe suggests, or just mix in a shaker as I did. Get the recipe.
2 parts vanilla vodka Blend or shake with ice and serve.
1 part almond liqueur
