Learn How To Make The Best Pistachio Amaretto Martini

Pistachio Amaretto Martini is a delicious upgrade to a Pistachio Martini. So what is this tempting drink? The short answer is that each sip is pure bliss.

Amaretto

Amaretto is an Italian liqueur that has an almond taste, making it the perfect addition to many alcoholic drinks. It is a staple for your home bar. A little bit goes a long way in drinks because of it’s strong flavor. So don’t be afraid to spend a little more on a great bottle of amaretto because it will last a while!

Of course, you could sip on it by itself for a simple and tasty drink. Because of the sweet, nutty flavor, just pouring a shot or two over ice is a great drink to sip on on a chilly night. Additionally, amaretto is a common ingredient to add to coffee for a warm, spiked drink! Further, many people like to cook with amaretto because of the sweet flavor that it adds to desserts.

Whatever you do with amaretto, it is sure to please your taste buds. It certainly adds an over-the-top taste to this yummy pistachio amaretto martini!
