Having a vanilla martini is one of the most convenient ways to enjoy a sweet, neat beverage with vanilla flavor. There are not many vanilla liqueurs on liquor store shelves, which is the source of the vanilla in the vanilla martini. A delightful martini utilizing Belvedere Vodka originally contained Navan, a vanilla liqueur that has natural flavoring. As a result, it was discontinued in the past, much to the dismay of its many fans, and it is now time to find a replacement. All three of these vanilla liqueurs would make great vanilla martinis, but Tuaca, Bols Vanilla, and Galliano will stand out as well. If you want to make your own vanilla rum, you might like Brinley Gold Shipwreck Rum, which has a flavor that is remarkably similar to Navan’s. It’s a perfect pairing to find a great vanilla spirit and use it in conjunction with smooth vodka such as Belvedere to create a new cocktail. Lime juice is added to neutralize the sweetness and to give the dish a zesty twist.
