Happy Friday! We are thrilled to collaborate with Kait on her summer drink series as guest bloggers. Yesterday, we posted one of her cocktail recipes “Sex on the Rockies” on our blog Mr. & Mrs. P. It is her hometown twist on the classic beach drink “Sex on the Beach.” Our followers loved it!
For our guest post on her blog, we decided to keep with the travel themed cocktails and create our twist on the classic French Martini. We took it up a notch and created the French Kiss Martini. This is the ultimate date-night-in drink for a Friday night and reminds us of our recent trip to Paris. (See our Paris posts on our blog!) With just a few simple ingredients, you can make it too! The pineapple juice and raspberry liquor delivers a wonderful rush of sweetness while the vodka and triple sec loosen you up! We promise you and your date won’t be disappointed. Oh la la!
1 cup of vodka
1/2 cup of pineapple juice
1/4 cup of triple sec
1/4 cup of Chambord (raspberry liquor)
Begin by pouring about 1/2 a cup of sugar to a small plate. Grab your lemon and cut it into 4 pieces lengthwise. Run the lemon wedge around the rim of the martini glasses and dip into the sugar. The lemon really helps the sugar adhere to the glass. Set aside while you prepare the martini.
Add the vodka, pineapple juice, triple sec and Chambord to the martini shaker. Fill with ice and shake vigorously for 30 to 45 seconds. Pour the chilled cocktail into your sugar rimmed martini glasses and enjoy!
Recipe makes 2 martinis.

Oh man, this looks good. I'd better make one fast, though – I'm leaving Monday and spending the rest of the summer in a dry village.
