A delicious martini imbued with creamy hazelnut, almond, and vanilla flavours. This festive cocktail is a delight to enjoy during the holidays.



2 oz vanilla vodka

2 oz Frangelico hazelnut liqueur

1 oz amaretto

1 1/2 oz cream

cinnamon and sugar, for rim


Rim martini glass with cinnamon and sugar. I used agave syrup to make the rim sticky before dipping it in the cinnamon and sugar blend, though lemon juice or water work as well.

Shake the vanilla vodka, Frangelico, amaretto, and cream in a cocktail shaker with ice for about 20 seconds.

Pour into rimmed martini glass and serve.


For this festive foliage martini glass decoration, I used twine to bind small branches of lemon cypress to the glass, then topped it with hypericum berries (also known as St. John’s wort). I recommend rimming the glass with cinnamon and sugar before decorating the glass with any foliage to make the dipping easier.
