Day 5 of 30 Cocktails in 30 Days: the French Martini
The French Martini is one of Mrs Romance’s favourites. I thought it was just because it uses two of her favourite words as its name. In reality this flirty little number is a winner.
Mrs R refers to it as ‘a lady’s martini’. It has all the components of a martini but is also sweet enough and not too strong.
A vodka or gin martini will knock your socks right off – especially if you aren’t used to them. The mild mannered French Martini is sweet and easy to drink. The only trouble is you might be under the impression you can have more than one… it’s still a double shot of vodka after all.
How to make a French martini
Here’s what you need:
For each drink
- Double measure of vodka
- ¾ measure of Chambord
- Double measure of pineapple juice
- Cocktail shaker
- Chilled martini glass
- Garnish: maraschino cherry or raspberry
Here’s what you do:
- Put the vodka, Chambord, pineapple juice and ice in a cocktail shaker
- Shake until the shaker has frosted on the sides.
- Pour into the martini glass and garnish with a cherry or float a raspberry on the surface of the drink.
Tip: If the pineapple juice is unsweetened, you might want to add a dash of sugar syrup.
