French Martini

adapted from: 101 Martinis

This classic and elegantly sweet martini is made with a tempting combination of vodka, pineapple juice, and Chambord®. Chambord® is a beautifully bottled French liqueur made from red and black raspberries, Madagascar vanilla, citrus peel, honey and cognac. Be sure to shake and not stir, the pineapple juice clouds the drink anyway, and shaking it gives the drink a nice froth.

1 ½ oz premium vodka
1 oz pineapple juice
¾ oz Chambord®

lemon peel, for garnish

Combine the vodka, pineapple juice, and Chambord® in a cocktail shaker filled with ice and shake vigorously. Strain into a chilled martini glass. Garnish with the lemon peel. Blackberries also make a nice garnish.
