There are so many actors and actresses associated with cocktails, that one might assume that the Hollywood Martini was a cocktail that was consumed by everyone associated with the film industry.

Believe it or not, the martini actually stems from the Hollywood vodka fruit cocktail, and is a martini version of the same drink. The reason why it is called the Hollywood Martini is because of the vibrant sunset-like colors that the martini exudes. The martini is absolutely beautiful libation, and literally looks like a summer sunset in a glass.

Ingredients:

  • 3 ounces of vodka
  • ½ ounce of black raspberry liqueur
  • 1 dash of pineapple juice
  • Ice

Preparation:

  1. Pour the ingredients into a cocktail shaker filled with ice.
  2. Shake well.
  3. Strain into a martini glass.

Equipment:

  • Cocktail shaker
  • Martini glass
The Hollywood cocktail is widely known as a more tropical version of the Screwdriver, as it is a vodka-based cocktail but replaces orange juice with the more exotic pineapple juice. We all know that screwdrivers are served in most bars worldwide, but one can consider the Hollywood as the “vacation” version of the screwdriver. Of course, the black raspberry liqueur allows the cocktail to have a whole different dimension to it, and the way that the colors interact truly is something to behold.

It’s a no-brainer that a beautiful and refreshing drink would be turned into a martini, and hence, the Hollywood Martini. Feel free to choose your own garnish, although an orange or lemon peel might be the most common. There are all sorts of cocktails and martinis associated with Hollywood, but it takes a certain beautiful martini to actually be named after the iconic city that has fulfilled and crushed the cinematic dreams of millions. It doesn’t matter whether you are watching the Oscars, live in Los Angeles, or simply love refreshing vodka martinis – the Hollywood Martini is not only refreshing to drink, but is beautiful to look at, as well!
