The BEST Pistachio Martini You Can Make At Home

Pistachio Martini. Did you even know that was a thing? I had never heard of it until a friend of mine posted a pistachio martini on Facebook one night. I didn’t even realize there was such a thing as pistachio liqueur. I guess I should have assumed it was a thing. Basically, there are a million different flavored vodkas as well as thousands of different liqueurs. I’m exaggerating, but when I go to Total Wine, I’m always overwhelmed with the selection there!

I LOVE pistachios. Once I found out this martini, I needed to try it! Of course, it was during the lock down of Covid-19 so I couldn’t order one of these in a restaurant, I had to take matters into my own hands and make one in my kitchen. One of the key ingredients is the pistachio liqueur, of course. The pistachio liqueur that I have tried and love is Sogno Di Sorrento Pistachio Crema. I finally broke down and bought everything to make this yummy drink. And when I finally made the pistachio martini, it was damn good!

Bartending At Home

I recently began making dessert-like martinis. Now, I can’t stop making them! It’s like my creative juices are flowing in martini form. Weird, right? But food and drinks can be considered artistic. You have to concoct a mixture of ingredients to get that perfect taste. Specifically, you need the perfect amount of each ingredient to perfect the best taste! It’s very artistic. Therefore, I consider myself a martini artist of sorts! I’m kidding. However, I do feel creative when creating new martinis, especially when they taste yummy!

The garnished martini glass with chocolate sauce and pistachios really pushes this to an amazing level! If you don’t want to go all out with the garnished glass, it’s fine, you can skip that. Just make sure you follow the rest of this recipe.

Ingredients

  • 2 oz Vodka
  • 3 oz Pistachio Liqueur
  • 1.5 oz White Chocolate Liqueur Godiva is the best!
  • Pistachios finely chopped
  • Chocolate Sauce
  • 1 dash Irish Cream optional if you prefer creamy drinks

How To Make

One of the best things about making martinis is that they are pretty easy to make. Half the battle with making a dessert-like martini is garnishing the glass. Of course, you don’t need to garnish the glass, but when making a delicious drink, it really adds to the overall effect of the martini and can change your mood! I mean, who doesn’t love a yummy drink that looks like an actual dessert? Isn’t that the point of a dessert martini??

Garnishing The Glass

  • Place chocolate syrup and chopped pistachios on 2 small, shallow plates.
  • Dip rim of martini glass first in the chocolate, then in pistachios.

Making The Martini

Once you have all the ingredients ready and you fill a cocktail shaker with some ice, you are just about done. Just measure each ingredient and pour them into the cocktail shaker. After everything is in the shaker, just shake it up and pour it into your martini glass. Then, sit back and enjoy!

  • Fill shaker 1/2 way with ice.
  • Add vodka, pistachio liqueur, irish cream, and white chocolate liqueur to shaker and shake well.
  • Pour into garnished glass.

Sip Slowly

A pistachio martini is a delicious and creamy martini that is really easy to drink. The pistachio liqueur, irish cream, and white chocolate liqueurs are really sweet which makes you feel as though you are drinking a shake rather than a potent martini. However, this entire martini is composed of alcohol so you need to sip slowly! Drink responsibly and keep your kids away from this drink. They will be curious for sure, but they cannot have this! All the more reason to put them to bed and then mix this up for yourself in peace and quiet!
