I mentioned I don’t have a huge sweet tooth in my last post, and that cheesecake is my favorite dessert. Tiramisu is a close second. Very close! And if both are on the menu? That’s a damn difficult decision to make! Mental note: I need to find a restaurant that has tiramisu cheesecake on the menu. But until then I have this tiramisu martini…
I was looking for something different to make the other night and I came across a recipe for Tiramisu Martinis. Clearly, this would be the one to catch my eye because it is coffee-flavored. So I mixed it up and it came out really tasty!
Four types of liquor, cream, and ice. Not a ton of ingredients, but kind of a lot for a cocktail. At least for me. Fortunately, I was able to find smaller bottles of the Bailey’s, amaretto and Kahlua. I don’t drink sweet liqueurs that often, so the 375ml size worked out perfectly for me. And I’m sure I can find recipes to use the vanilla vodka. Perhaps another tiramisu martini (darn it all!).
What can I say? My tiramisu martini was really easy to make. I had my glass garnished and my cocktail shaken and poured in 2 1/2 minutes. And it turned out to be a very pretty drink if I do say so myself.
The chocolate syrup garnish was a first for me. The recipe does say to rim the glass with the syrup, but the author’s photo showed it drizzled in the glass. I decided to go that route since actually rimming the glass seemed like it might drip. This garnish was even easier, too, since all I had to do was squirt the syrup into the glass while I turned the stem.
