How to Make a French Martini with Chambord Raspberry Liqueur

First, start with a cocktail shaker filled with plenty of ice cubes.

Then measure and pour the vodka into the shaker. To make a great vodka martini make sure to use a really good vodka. We use Absolut but you can also use Ketel One or Grey Goose. 


Next, measure out the Chambord and add it to the shaker. Chambord is a French raspberry liqueur with a sweet raspberry flavor. The brand started in the late 1980s and the French Martini was first served in New York City. The liqueur itself is modeled after a liqueur produced in the Loire Valley of France during the late 17th century.

Add the pineapple juice to the cocktail shaker. You can use fresh juiced or store-bought pineapple juice. Make sure it is 100% pure pineapple juice without anything added.
