Favourite martini recipe*

cosmo* NaBloPoMo prompt suggested by Heather

Purists would say that my favourite martini is not a martini at all. Well, if it’s served in a martini glass, then as far as I’m concerned, it’s a martini.

I can’t take credit for this; the recipe comes from the Martini Goddess. It’s the perfect blend of flavours for my taste buds, walking the fine line between sweet and sour. It’s also sneaky – it’s one of those drinks that dangerously creeps up on you. It will only let you know how potent it is when you stand up after your third one. Or, I should say, try to stand up.

Raspberry Cosmo

1 oz. Raspberri Absolut (don’t use Smirnoff Raspberry, it tastes like shit)

1/2 oz. Triple Sec

1/2 oz. lime cordial

2 oz. cranberry-raspberry cocktail

Put all ingredients in a cocktail shaker filled with ice. Shake, letting the sound of the ice swooshing around soothe any shattered nerves.

Pour into a 4 oz. martini glass, garnish with a few raspberries.

Sip and enjoy until the crappy parts of your day are nothing but a distant memory.


  1. I have tried to stand up after 3 or 4 of those. Bad idea. Gravity still works

  2. is it sad that I have absolutely none of those ingredients in my house?
