A Southern French Martini Recipe with my Well Told Yellowstone Rocks Glass

Southern French Martini

OK, so a martini should be served in a martini glass but when you have a Yellowstone Rocks Glass available and you just want to drink from it, it is perfectly acceptable to make a martini in one. As I feature one of the National Parks Rocks Glasses that Well Told offers, I thought I’d share how I recently learned how to make a Southern French Martini. A southern french martini has a simple syrup in the recipe. To not use a simple syrup would make it a french martini (without the southern title). I use stevia or monkfruit rather than standard sugar for a sugar free simple syrup and I infuse my syrup with pineapple so there is an element of ‘natural sugars’.

Southern French Martini

I got this recipe from a family member. I used a monkfruit sweetner for my infused simple syrup, however this does contain natural sugars within the fruit I use.
Prep Time 1 hr
Cook Time 20 mins
Course Drinks
Servings 1 cocktail

Equipment

  • 1 Shot Glass
  • 1 Cocktail Shaker

Ingredients
  

  • 1 oz Vodka
  • 1 oz Raspberry Liqueur I used Chombord
  • 1 oz Fresh Pineapple Juice I used Dole 100% Fresh juice
  • .5 oz Simple Syrup I used pineapple infused
  • Ice to shake and chill

Instructions
 

Pineapple Infused Simple Syrup

  • In a small saucepan ass 1:1 ratio of sugar (I used monkfruit sweetener) and water. I cup each will make several drinks. Add fresh cut pineapple. I buy precut pineapple from my grocers fruit bowl section. Bring to a boil as you stir occasionally. Let simmer for 20 minutes. Cool and transfer to a glass container. It will keep for a week in the fridge.

The Cocktail

  • Add ice to your shaker
  • Add the vodka, liqueur, simple syrup and pineapple juice and shake until blended and chilled. Drain into a glass and enjoy!

Notes

You can omit the simple syrup and use the other ingredients. In this case you have a French Martini rather than a Southern French Martini (Southern=Sugar)

Well Told has the best barware and drinkware. I have many Well Told items in my bar and they always bring compliments. Not only am I a Yellowstone (TV series) fan, but we visiting Yellowstone last summer in an RV road trip. I was so excited to find this rocks glass. You can also choose city maps, colleges, literature and more that are etched with the best quality. Shop Well Told for gifts and glasses for you home bar!
