French Martini Cocktail Recipe

A Martini is simply a combination of Gin and Vermouth, although how much of each continues to be hotly debated. The amount of Vermouth has decreased significantly over the years, to the point where some add only a drop or even none at all. So, a classic Martini is becoming really just a measure of Gin in a fancy glass.

It’s no wonder, therefore, that a hundred variations have sprung up to keep the name alive such as the pornstar martini. It’s hard to run a Martini bar on the strength of a single bottle of Gin. Most of these new drinks are Martinis in name only, however, having nothing to do with either Gin or Vermouth. Now, it seems that any drink served in a Martini glass will qualify.

Our French Martini is one of the best of the new breed (but no Gin, no Vermouth). The mix of raspberry and pineapple flavours is truly delicious, and if you prefer a slightly sweeter cocktail, you can adjust the ratio of Vodka and Chambord to 1:1.

And in case you always wanted to know, James Bond orders his Martini made the wrong way. Shaking the Gin and Vermouth dilutes the drink and it tastes better lightly stirred so that two ingredients stay layered.

Here’s the recipe for making a French Martini:

Ingredients

Preparation

  1. Fill a cocktail shaker with ice.
  2. Add all ingredients.
  3. Shake gently, just long enough for the ingredients to blend.
  4. Strain into a cocktail glass.
  5. Garnish with a single raspberry.
