It isn’t very difficult to make a French Martini. All it requires is just a few ingredients which are readily available. Luxurious versions can be
created with the addition of fresh raspberries. This fruit also helps provide the drink with one of
its most prominent flavors. A variety of flavored vodkas can also be used as well as an interesting array of martini glasses. And along with all the prerequisites, add your own ingenious side
and love for the spirit!
Expert bartender John Collingwood demonstrates good techniques in this video from Want to Impress.
He uses Gray Goose Vodka in the demonstration, the Chambord recipe recommends Finlandia, we recommend you use
your favorite or try Svedka which is a super clean tasting reasonably priced choice.
Much like a Cosmopolitian Cocktail the French Martini requires a only a minimum of bar equipment to
prepare - a Boston Shaker along with a fine strainer will suffice for the basic. Locate your muddler or a
rolling pin to use fresh fruits along with or instead of fruit juices. Link to our selected French Martini Video page for another look at John.
