FRENCH MARTINI

FUSS FREE COCKTAILS

ABOUT

The French martini, a fan favourite, way actually first made in New York circa 1980’2 and quickly the trend followed in Soho during the cocktail renaissance of the 80’s and 90’s. 

The key ingredient in most French martini is the ‘Chambord’ which is a French raspberry liqueur which has been produced in France since 1685! 

Typically the cocktail is further fortified with vodka and then lengthened with pineapple juice, before being shaken and double strained, through both hawthorn strainer and a fine strainer to aerate the drink giving it a signature foamy top. 

Keeping on theme we’ve also included a French Vodka made from French wine grapes, Ciroc, which is also pineapple flavoured to help boost the sweet pineapple notes which are blanked perfectly with the sharp tang of the raspberry liqueur. 

This cocktail will most likely be the frenchest martini you could possibly get this side of the channel!
