Carbones Pistachio Martini
found at Carbone's
588 Franklin Ave, Hartford, CT 06115
Ingredients: Svedka vanilla vodka, Frangelico, Amaretto, Midori, Splash of cream
Featured in the Faith Middletown “Booze and Shmooze” Martini event in 2012, this ultra classic cocktail speaks volumes about what is found at Carbones in general. Namely: richly blended flavors, authentic ingredients, and the delicious sensation of getting exactly what you were looking for. There’s a smooth bite of vodka, sure, but the pistachio flavor is what really stands out and makes this drink unique. The pistachio martini plays equally well as a pre-dinner cocktail or dessert-you-don’t-need-a-fork-for. Of course, you could also order one by itself with no food involved. But let’s face it – this is Carbones, and they have been supplying Hartford’s Franklin Ave with delectable Italian food for generations. So it’s probably in your best interest to order at least a small bite to eat…. or a large plate of pasta perhaps. Mange mange!
