More inspiration for the "French-Italian Cocktail"

  • The Wedding Cake Martini: I love this idea, and it contains Amaretto, a favorite liquor of ours. I will suggest that Heidi use this for her "signature drink" at the reception. Here's how to make this martini: Ingredients-- 1/2 ounce Absolut vodka; 3 ounces Amaretto; 1/2 ounce orange juice; 1/2 ounce pineapple juice; 1 tablespoon heavy cream
