Martini Monday: Cloud Nine Martini

035

I have no idea why this martini is called a Cloud Nine Martini. Maybe it’s because the whiskey gives you a sense of euphoria. No? Just me? Ok. Anyway, our liquor cabinet is on the low side at the moment and I’m avoiding restocking so this one is a bit strange – whiskey (Balvenie that’s been in our possession for 4 years) and amaretto. And some mixers. But it was surprisingly good.

059

1 part whiskey
1 part amaretto
1 part pineapple juice
splash of grenadine
splash of club soda
maraschino cherry for garnish

Combine all ingredients (except cherry) in an ice filled martini shaker. Shake well, strain into martini glass. Garnish with cherry.

  1. Whiskey is never my favorite or “go-to” for mixing, but this martini looks good!
    Great color 🙂

  2. This actually sounds rather interesting. I just bought a bottle of Amaretto and have like an inch left in a whiskey bottle I’ve had for literally years so I may have to try this one 🙂
