Baklava Martini Cocktail:

  • ½ oz. Amaretto liqueur
  • ½ oz. crème de cacao

Place a martini glass in a freezer till cold. Combine amaretto, bourbon, crème de cacao, simple syrup, and cinnamon in a cocktail shaker full of ice. Shake well; strain into a chilled martini glass.


Baklava Cocktail Rimmer Mix:

Ingredients:

  • 1 lb. walnuts, coarsely ground
  • 1/2 lb. almonds, coarsely ground
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 tbsp. ground cinnamon

Preparation:

If you are using a food processor to grind the nuts, process the almonds separately from the walnuts. Almonds take a bit more time to grind than walnuts and you don’t want the walnuts to be ground too finely. Using a coffee grinder, grind walnuts or almonds until they are finely ground. Store it in dry location.
