Does anyone have the exact recipe with amounts of each ingredient that Princess uses in their Toasted Almond Martini? Thanks for your help!

Lynda, I have the bar menu in front of me with the ingredients; but it doesn't list the quanitities.

Absolut Vodka, Amaretto, Kahlua, Brogans and Cream.

Maybe that will help.

Do you use a shot glass and if so, is it one or two or ? shots? Do you add any half/half to it? I want to serve this drink to friends on NY Eve. Thanks for your help.

I'm not sure if this is the same ingredient measurements and/or recipe as the one used on Princess but did find a recipe at another source:

Toasted Almond Martini

1 1/2 oz. Amaretto
1 oz. Kahlua
1 oz. cream or half and half
1 or more cheries

1. Add ice to cocktail shaker
2. Add Amaretto, Kahlua and cream or half and half
3. cap shaker and shake ~ 5 seconds
4. strain into cocktail glass
5. garnish with cherry
6. Serve

Hope this makes the drink you experienced and enjoyed.

I don't use half n half. That just "waters" it down, so to speak.
I don't measure. I just eyeball it, but you certainly could use a measuring device of some kind. As long as you're using equal parts, it all depends on the size of the drink what measure you use. If you want, you can shake it over ice like a "regular" martini and strain and serve "up" in a glass. OR you can just mix and serve over ice in a short glass. I garnish with a cherry with stem.

Thanks! Think I'll start with a shot of each and eliminate the half and half and go from there!
