Strawberry Martini

November 13th, 2009 - 5:36pm by Slye Fox

It's been a little while since I've played with my "chemistry set" and come up with a new concoction. A bottle of strawberry vodka from the liquor store got my creative juices running again though. :)

This strawberry martini is coupled with chocolate flavors that are pretty much hidden in the strawberry flavor, but really bring out the berry sweetness. Grapefruit juice is used to cut the sugar and provide a little color. It's absolutely delicious!

  • 4 oz Strawberry Vodka
  • 2 oz Clear Creme de Cocao
  • splash of Ruby Red grapefruit juice
  • few drops of Grenadine
  • white sugar
  • fresh strawberry

Slice the strawberry and run a slice around a martini glass edge. Rim the glass with sugar. Shake all ingredients with ice in a shaker until it sweats and strain into a martini glass. Garnish with a strawberry slice.

I am so NOT a drinker of beer or alcohol* but that sounds really good! I'd like to try it sometime.

*except an occasional Bacardi silver, Mike's,puckers, or shot of amaretto on the rocks
