365:165 French Martini


A French Martini! In Scotland a couple of years ago, my Scottish BFF introduced me to a cocktail called a French Martini. It’s made of vodka, pineapple juice and a liqueur called Chambord which is made of black raspberries. Despite it being a French product, you cannot find it anywhere in Europe so the last time I was back in Scotland, I brought home a couple of bottles (they’re tiny, I needed two for sure.)

We had friends over to celebrate our Swiss BFF’s birthday and we cracked open the Chambord and made happy with some fabulous French Martinis.

The recipe Mr Mac followed is:

15ml Chambord (actually, when you up this a little, you get a tastier cocktail)
50ml vodka
60ml pineapple juice

Shake over ice, strain and serve with a twist of lemon or raspberry as garnish.

Try it, you’ll thank me.
