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.
Sweet Martini With Raspberry
- 2 1/2 fl oz gin (we used Hendriks)
- 1 1/2 fl oz red sweet Vermouth (we used Cinzano)
Sweet Vermouth Martini Instructions
Cool a martini/coupe glass in the fridge or use a few ice cubes.
Pour gin and vermouth into a mixing glass and add ice.
Stir and strain into the chilled glass.
Garnish with a couple of raspberries on a toothpick.
Sit back, relax and enjoy this delicious martini with its balance of sweet and dry flavors and its elegant presentation, it’s one of the most classic cocktails that never goes out of style.
So if you want to wow your friends with an impressive drink that doesn’t require a lot of effort on your part, the Sweet Vermouth Martini is just what you need! Cheers!
Variation: I also tried this with muddled/smashed raspberries, and it was delish!
The presentation is just lovely and would be great for Valentine’s or Galentine’s Day, Easter brunch or even a Mother’s day treat!
