Cocktail Hour: The French Martini.

Whenever I have company over, it’s fun to have a special drink to offer instead of just your standard wine, beer, vodka soda. When my mom visited a couple weeks ago, we made French martinis! They’re super easy to make, and really delicious! We served them in my new-ish pink milk glass champagne glasses (I’m obsessed with milk glass and it looks great on my bar cart). I got mine at Chairish, but eBay has a huge selection. I like to put the glasses in my freezer for a few hours before to ensure an extra frosty cocktail!

You only need three ingredients to make these (and there is no garnish), so this is great for when you want to serve something special without a big fuss.

Ingredients:

  • 1 1/2 oz. Vodka
  • 1/2 oz. Chambord (raspberry liquor)
  • 1 1/2 oz. Pineapple Juice (I used fresh pineapple juice and think it made a big difference!)

Shake or stir… strain, and pour into a chilled glass! Told you it was easy… 😉

    ok ok ok, French Martini’s are my FAVOURITE cocktail, they’re my signature drink – I have had to lean over man a bar to teach many a barperson how to make them. But they’re made a little differently in Australia than anywhere else – try adding some muddled lime to the cocktail and VOILA your world will be transformed x

    I don’t like martinis, but this I can handle. Luv the milk glass!

    Definitely going to try this recipe! Besides just being a fan of all things French, I like cocktail recipes that are a step up from the norm, but don’t require a ton of random liqueurs, etc. Thanks!
