Valentine’s Martini: FAQS
I don’t have vanilla or chocolate vodka, any substitutions?
You can use 1 oz of plain vodka and 1oz 0f white chocolate liqueur instead of the two vodkas if you need to.
Does this cocktail contain nuts?
While Amaretto has a distinctly almond flavor, I used the Disaronno brand for my martini and it does not contain any nuts.
According to the Italian company that makes it, this liqueur is an infusion of apricot kernel oil with “absolute alcohol, burnt sugar, and the pure essence of seventeen selected herbs and fruits”
