FAQs

Can I make a large batch of pistachio martinis for a party?

Yes, you can. Multiply the recipe by the number of servings you need.

Can I make this pistachio martini ahead of time?

Since this recipe is shaken I would suggest making it right before serving. If you don’t mind it stirred you could make ahead in a pitcher and store in the fridge. Stir before serving.

Can I make a frozen version of a pistachio martini?

Yes, you can and it’s delicious. Just add all the ingredients to a blender and blend together. May need to add more ice and liquid to get the right consistency.
