This fun French martini cocktail has a wonderful balance of flavors thanks to pineapple juice, black raspberry liquor and of course vodka; they all combine for a smooth, sweet and creamy drink that you’ll love.

This cocktail might have a classic name but it only dates back to 1989! Depending on what you read it was either invented at a bar in New York or by the Chambord company itself as a promotion. Either way its a fun cocktail with a nice fruity note that’s dangerously strong but oh so smooth!

If you can’t find Chambord you can make this cocktail with Creme de cassis, which is a delicious black currant liquor that works wonderfully in this French martini recipe.
