French Martini

French Matini Cocktail from Passion for Cocktails

The combination of Vodka, Raspberry liqueur and pineapple juice make this quite a smooth, velvety and smooth fruity Cocktail. 

The mixing of Raspberry and Pineapple is always a joy as it 'goes down' very easily and well.

  • 2 shot Vodka
  • 1/2 Shot Chambord Liqueur
  • 1 & 1/2 Shot Pineapple juice
How to make one: 
  1. Add all the ingredients into the Cocktail shaker over ice
  2. Strain into a ice-filled glass
  3. Garnish with a slice of pineapple

There is no evidence that a French Martini was first created in France nor by a Frenchman. It is believed to have been created in America during the late1980's or early 1990's - there is no conclusive evidence anywhere to substantiate this.  Why it is called a Martini is also unclear as it does not contain Vermouth - the main constituent of a true Martini.  During the early 1990's Martini's were all the craze when Sean Connery was at his height as James Bond.  Justn about any Cocktail served in a 'V' shaped glass was considered a Martini.  Perhaps this is the origin of the French Martini

Glassware For This Cocktail

Coupe - Champagne Saucer
This Cocktail glass also known as "The Champagne saucer glass" was first created and used widely in the 1930's. Characterized by a tall stem and wide bowl. The Cocktail drinker's nose inhales the aroma, fragrance and bouquet of the cocktail - be it heady or delicate from the expansive bowl. The Coupe Cocktail glass was the original Champagne glass for literally the first half of the 20th century before the Champagne flute became popular in the 1950's and 1960's and subsequently took over as the glass to drink Champagne.
