1ozVodkaCan be any. Rock Town is my go to vodka. Vanilla, raspberry or pineapple would be my choice if you want to use flavored.
1ozChambordYou may choose any raspberry liqueur, but I have listed my choice.
2ozFresh or Dole Pineapple Juice If you choose another it can change the taste...a lot.
1/2 - 1ozPineapple Infused Simple SyrupDoes not have to have this ingredient. I only use 1/2 oz.
Pineapple Infused Simple Syrup - Fix in Advance
1/4 - 1/2cupSugar or SteviaI only use 1/4 but most recipes call for equal parts sugar to liquid.
If you are making a "Southern" French Martini you will want to go ahead and prepare your simple syrup ahead of time. Should be refrigerated & ready to mix. Shake well before you pour into measuring glass.You want to put a 4-6 cubes of ice in shaker, add all ingredients. Shake thoroughly to cause the pineapple to froth. (That's my favorite part!) Let it rest after the shake to fully froth for 20 seconds or so. That was a lie... I love it all. I frequently double all the amounts if I have a larger glass, or company over, but I never put more than that in the shaker at one time.
Pineapple Infused Simple Syrup
Add all the ingredients bring to a boil till sugar is dissolved 1-2 minutes. If possible to make ahead and refrigerate for best results. Will last in refrigerator for up to 2 weeks.
Garnishes and Glasses
The sky's the limit. I usually add frozen fruit to my glass, my preference is some type of berry or pineapple. Any of those can be used on cocktail sticks (fresh fruit is best for this, but I have used frozen). You can rim your glass with sugar for a different take. Classic martini glasses work great but are not necessary. We've used mason jars, metal insulated wine glasses, and champagne flutes. Just whatever makes you happy. Make it work for your life or theme. Send me pictures of what you do.
