I really enjoyed the French Martini (with Chambord and pineapple juice), so I could not wait to try this. (Click here for original recipe.)
Ingredients: ½ oz. rum, ½ oz. Midori, 1 oz. Chambord, 3 oz. pineapple juice
Directions: Put all ingredients into a shaker with ice. Strain into a glass with ice.
I first made this drink as directed, but ended up adding a little extra Chambord to make this less orange and more red. I didn’t think the extra black raspberry flavor would be a bad thing…and it wasn’t. The flavor of the Midori is quite subtle, but it is still there. You will notice that there is a fair amount of liquor in this drink – but the sweet combination of flavors really hides that fact, so be forewarned. It is smooth and wonderful and should be tried as soon as possible. Cheers!
