Last night, at a progressive dinner gathering of friends, we ended the night with after dinner drinks. I made butterscotch martinis. I saw the original recipe on the Food Network with Sandra Lee. She calls her version a Butter Martini, but the butterscotch Schnapps is so flavorful and makes the drink tastes more like the candy instead of a stick of butter.
Here’s what you need:
Cocktail shaker — not required, but will make you look really cool while mixing the cocktail
Crushed ice cubes
One part Vanilla Vodka (I put my bottle in the freezer to make it really cold)
One part chilled pineapple juice
Splash of butterscotch Schnapps
Splash of Chamboard (a raspberry liqueur)
For the “one part” I just used the little jigger on top of the cocktail shaker. Mix all the ingredients in the shaker, then pour into glasses.
It was just the right blend of flavors. You got the vanilla vodka at the top note of the drink and after a minute the smooth, caramel flavor of the butterscotch set in.
Perfect cozy fireside drink with friends. Cheers!
