Italian Riviera – Via Dell’Amore

  • 6cl roasted almond infused vodka

Place the ingredients in a shaker. Pour the mixture into a Martini glass and place an Amarena cherry at the bottom.

To make the roasted almond infused vodka: use 50g of almonds and preheat the oven to 180°C. Spread greaseproof baking paper on the oven shelf and place the almonds on it. Cook for 10 minutes at 180°C and, halfway through cooking, turn the almonds over to even out the batch. Finally, remove the almonds from the oven and allow them to cool before placing them in a bottle of vodka. Infusion time: 1 month.
