What makes the French Martini “French”?

The ingredients are what give this sweet martini its name. Grey Goose and Chambord are products of France.

How to Make a French Martini

  • In a co*cktail shaker add ice and vodka, Chambord, and pineapple juice. Shake it vigorously! Shake it really hard, this creates that silky foam layer on top.
  • Next strain the co*cktail into a martini glass. Take your time and allow the foam to pour out. Be patient to get the last bit of foam out of the shaker. Let the co*cktail rest for about 30 seconds to allow the foam layer to form.
  • How to Serve: Gently place a raspberry hallow opening side up on top of the foam. The raspberry will float and stay in place as long as no liquid gets into the top opening of the raspberry. Or garnish with a pick of raspberries and lay across the top of the French Martini.

Recipe Tips

The biggest thing about this French Martini Recipe is the silky foam layer. You will really want to shake the co*cktail shaker to achieve a nice thick foam layer. The pineapple juice is the ingredient that creates that layer.

Do you want to know how to make a French Martini frothy?

The pineapple juice is what creates the foam when shaken vigorously in a co*cktail shaker.

  • Once you have added all the co*cktail ingredients and ice in a shaker you will shake until your arms hurt or your hand’s freeze. The shaker will get frosty and then will start to freeze. It will be too cold to handle.

All that shaking creates an ice-cold co*cktail with a thick silky foam top.

  • Slowly strain the co*cktail into a martini glass. The foam will slowly come out. Just be patient. Give the shaker a few deliberate downward shakes over the co*cktail to get the remaining foam moving.
  • Let the French Martini co*cktail rest for 30 seconds. This allows the foam to form at the top of the glass. Then gently garnish with a raspberry.
