The Nilla Wafer Martini isn’t quite a candy ‘tini. It doesn’t overwhelm you with sweetness or an attack of super-rich flavors. It’s sweet, but very simple and straightforward. Nothing frou-frou here.
Blending vanilla vodka with amaretto, the Nilla Wafter Martini makes a nice aperitif or dessert drink. It’s sweet, but not so sweet that you can’t enjoy it before dinner. Like a traditional martini, it’s 100% alcohol with no mixers or fillers, so as gentle as the flavor is, this drink is not for the faint of heart.
The flavors are simple: vanilla with amaretto. Because the recipe makes use of just two ingredients, nothing overpowers those flavors. They come through loud and clear, rich and delicious.
