When people think martinis, they think shaken or stirred, dirty or dry, olives or twist. Don’t get me wrong, a good dirty martini makes me happy. But my go to happy martini is the French Martini.
Don’t be scared of a martini. But, be warned the largest part of the drink is vodka, so it won’t take many to make you happy as a farmwife. Three ingredients and you are on your way. Vanilla Vodka (or regular vodka), Chambord, and pineapple juice. That is all.
In a cocktail shaker, add ice followed by vodka, Chambord and the pineapple juice. I make my French Martini 2 parts vodka, 1 part Chambord and 1/2 part pineapple juice.
Now, I have made this martini with the likes of vanilla vodka. I have tried other raspberry or blackberry liquors. Nothing is like the original.
Shake the liquor and pour into a martini glass. Garnish with raspberries or a lemon twist.
- 2 ounces of vodka
- 1 ounce Chambord
- 1/2 ounce pineapple juice
Combine the ingredients in a shaker filled with ice. Shake.
Pour into martini glass.
Garnish with raspberries, if desired.
