Ambrosia Martini

I grew up eating ambrosia for special occasions. While I don’t eat it quite as often anymore, it is one of my guilty pleasures. Full of orange, pineapple, whipped cream, coconut, marshmallows and cherries, my mom made the best. This drink is inspired by her fruity, creamy, coconut goodness.

Ambrosia Martini
by Tracy
Serves 1

1/2 Tablespoon honey
1 Tablespoon coconut, colored green, using this method
1 maraschino cherry
1 ounce coconut vodka, I used Skyy Coconut
1 ounce marshmallow vodka, I used Smirnoff Fluffed Marshmallow
1 ounce Cointreau
1/2 ounce pear vodka, I used Grey Goose La Poire
1/2 ounce brandy
2 ounces pineapple juice
1 ounce heavy cream
1 Tablespoon grenadine
Yellow Peeps

Prepare glass by coating rim with honey and dipping into colored coconut, making sure to cover rim all the way around. Slice the cherry without cutting all the way through and place it on the rim of the glass. Set aside

Fill a martini shaker with ice and add all of the drink ingredients. Shake well and strain into prepared glass. Top with a Peep. Enjoy!
