Amarillo Martini

In a blog comment below, John asks about the brand name of the vanilla cognac and the recipe for the Amarillo Martini that I blogged about earlier. The cognac is called Navan. It's part of the Grand Marnier line of products. It's the only vanilla cognac sold in Washington state and may be the only one made. The liquor store that I was in yesterday displayed it in a locked case with other fine cognacs. The price was $39 for the bottle. Don't worry. Even if you don't just love the martini recipe, this vanilla cognac is a fine after dinner sipping drink. It's a little sweeter than your average cognac, but the blend of cognac and vanilla is rather heavenly.

Now, for the recipe. Note: I used the juice of half a small lime rather than muddle the three slices. Shawn later mixed a small (1/4 ounce) of brandy in with her last drink to take away some of the sweetness.

3 lime slices, plus one for garnish
1.5 ounces Navan vanilla cognac
1.5 ounces fresh pineapple juice

Muddle the limes, then shake with ice, cognac and juice. Strain into a martini glass. Garnish with lime.

If you google vanila cognac, you will also find a reference to another brand besides the Navan (Grand Marnier)....Meukow is another.

Interesting. I'm not familiar with the other brand name. Grand Marnier is a name that I trust. I didn't see Meukow in the Washington liquor store, so for my purposes, the point may be moot. If you do a taste test, then let me know!
