The French Martini is a sweet and soft cocktail with a silky foamy top.
Disclosure: I saw these stunning Martini glasses by JoyJolt and emailed them in hopes to work together. They agreed and sent me these glasses to use for this recipe.
You can see by my Perfect Cosmopolitan, Blue Lagoon and Orange Martini that I love Martinis. This French Martini is my new favorite. Smooth, sweet and silky. How can you not fall in love with this French Martini!
Let’s talk about these Stunning Martini Glasses
I follow JoyJolt on Instagram and their glassware is nothing short of sexy. I already had their Hue Shot Glasses that I use all the time at parties because of their fun colors. I entertain A LOT at home and when I saw the CARRE Collection I had to have them. They are showstoppers. Absolutely stunning. If you entertain in the home you need these glasses.
French Martini Ingredients
Raspberry for garnish
What makes the French Martini French?
The ingredients are what gives this sweet martini its name. Grey Goose and Chambord are products of France.
How to get that silky foamy top.
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 to cold to handle. All that shaking creates an ice cold cocktail with a thick silky foam top.
Slowly strain the cocktail in to 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 garnish with a raspberry.

- 1 oz Grey Goose Vodka
- 1 oz Chambord
- 2 oz pineapple juice
- raspberry (garnish)
In a cocktail shaker add ice and cocktail ingredients.
Strain into a Martini glass. Take your time to and allow foam to rest on top. Let the cocktail rest for 30 seconds. This allows the foam to form.
Gently place a raspberry hallow opening side up on top the foam. It will float and stay in place as long as no liquid gets into the opening of the raspberry.
