Every once in a while, pop culture helps propel a modern cocktail to the forefront.  This is the case with the Flirtini. The incredibly successful and critically acclaimed HBO show, Sex and The City, helped make this particular cocktail extremely famous.  The show has been more than just a successful TV show with 54 Emmy nominations, but actually even led to a popular and successful movie franchise.  In fact, it is regularly listed on critics’ lists of the greatest shows of all time.

The martini completely fit in with the theme and undertones of the show, as it is a show about four single women and their love lives in Manhattan.  In fact, fans of the show began throwing parties where they would make pitchers of the flirtini cocktail and drink while enjoying the series. The drink is a very simple cocktail – containing vodka, champagne, and pineapple juice.

Ingredients:

  • 1 ounce of vodka
  • 1 ounce of champagne
  • 2 pieces of fresh pineapple
  • ½ ounce of Cointreau Orange Liqueur
  • 1 ounce of pineapple juice

Preparation:

  1. Muddle the pineapple pieces and Cointreau into a mixing glass.
  2. Add vodka and pineapple juice.
  3. Stir.
  4. Strain into a chilled martini glass.
  5. Top the cocktail with some champagne.

Equipment:

  • Cocktail shaker
  • Martini glass
  • Muddler

You are always welcome to use an ounce of fresh pineapple juice instead of muddling the pineapple pieces.  There are also champagne lovers that add an extra ounce or two of champagne to their drink, because it is their favorite part.  It is ultimately a great date drink for a meetup at an upscale restaurant, or a nightcap on a balcony. The most common garnish for this particular martini is the maraschino cherry.  Some people also choose to garnish the martini with a sprig of mint.

Feel free to use raspberry vodka to give the drink an extra vibrant color. In fact, a “Pink Flirtini” often incorporates cranberry juice and raspberries, to make it extra pink, for those who prefer that version.  All in all, it is the perfect cocktail for a girl’s night out, or a romantic evening. Try the flirtatious drink today!
