French martinis

French martinis are my absolute favorite cocktail. They are the perfect stiff drink masked by just the right amount of sweetness. I have got lots of my friends hooked on them. If you want to make them at home here is the recipe that I use:

2 oz Vodka
½ oz Chambord (it comes in an orb-shaped bottle)
2 ½ oz Pineapple Juice

Pack a shaker full of ice and add all ingredients. Shake or stir. I usually shake to get a nice muddled color. Strain into a martini glass. Garnish with a lemon twist (optional, I never do it).

Enjoy! I sure do.
