How To Make A Sweet Vermouth Martini

If you’re looking for a classic cocktail that’s easy to make, then look no further than this Sweet Vermouth Martini.
I can hardly imagine anyone who has never had a martini: with its signature olive (or lemon twist, depending on the barman!) and the classic mix of gin and dry vermouth, the martini is one of the most well-known and well-loved cocktails in the world.
But what if you liked your drink sweeter? What if the olive wasn’t really your thing?
Don’t worry:  the sweet martini is just as cool as the original martini, just a tad more “girly”.
This famous variation on the standard recipe features red sweet vermouth instead of dry vermouth, allowing for a more spicy and herbal flavor.
Add a few raspberries for a touch of sweetness and tang, and you got yourself the best possible after-dinner drink.
