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

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.
