How to Make a French Martini

In a cocktail shaker add ice and French Martini ingredients. Shake it vigorously! Shake it really hard, this creates that silky foam layer on top.

Next strain the cocktail 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 cocktail rest for about 30 seconds to allow the foam layer to form.

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 garnish pick with raspberries and lay across the top of the French Martini.

How to get that silky foamy top.

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

The pineapple juice is what creates the foam when shook vigorously in a cocktail shaker. Once you have added all the cocktail ingredients and ice in a shaker you will shake until your arms hurt or your hands’ freeze. The shaker will get frosty then will start to freeze. It will be too cold to handle. No pain. No gain! Trust me it is worth it!

All that shaking creates an ice-cold cocktail with a thick silky foam top.

Slowly strain the cocktail into a martini glass. The foam will slowly come out. Just be patient. Give the shaker a few deliberate downward shakes over the cocktail to get the remaining foam moving.

Let the cocktail rest for 30 seconds. This allows the foam to form at the top of the glass. Then gently garnish with a raspberry.

French Martini Recipe. Sweet, smooth and silky.

  1. Yeah you can get them on JoyJolt.com or on Amazon.com. I have a link in the blog post to the glasses.

  2. Delish drink! Great glasses! Just put in an order for them! Can’t wait to try some of the other drink recipes! Thanks!

  3. French Martinis are very tasty and too bad that most bartenders have no clue how to make them lol. Just a note- French martini is a blackberry drink not raspberry. Chambord is a blackberry liquor.

  4. The Chambord bottle says Black Raspberry Liqueur. Black raspberries are not the same as blackberries.

    I am very familiar with this cocktail. Just not that amazing foam. Fantastic. One question though. Try as I might I cannot get this drink to look very pink. The pineapple seems to rule the color palette. Any tips, advice on this problem?

    During this time of self-quarantine, I needed a recipe for my new found favorite cocktail. Because I like Stoli raspberry, I used that in place of the regular vodka. I also added 1/2 is Triple Sec. It was luscious!

  7. I’ve t r indeed lots of Martini’s I’ll definitely try this one and as for the Martini Glasses I also have them, as well as Shot Glasses, Whiskey Decanters. I absolutely love Joy Jolt Products
