French Martini

My girlfriend’s go-to drink for the evening. Simple but dangerously delicious.

So this is my Girlfriend Fionna’s favourite cocktail. She loves how easy it is to drink. She kind of stumbled across it whilst trying to find an alternative to Gin. Vodka based, this cocktail is fruity yet light. The pineapple juice, when shaken, leaves the cocktail with a lovely foamy top. Sweet but not overpoweringly so.

If you are a fan of light and fruity cocktails, then this one is for you. It is a cocktail to start off an evening of drinking or it can carry you all the way through it. The only issue is that it’s full of alcohol and far too easy to drink.
