Twisted French Martini

The Twisted French Martini takes this Martini variation to a new level. It adds a bunch of flowers with a dash of St Germain elderflower liqueur.

As anyone who creates or adapts cocktail recipes, St Germain is great when you just want to add something else. You may not know what that something else is, but chances are, St Germain will fix it. It brings an almost sensual note to your drink, but it’s important not to use too much. If you do, St Germain can take good balance down the path of cloying and sweet.

So how did the Twisted French Martini come into being? According to Difford’s Guide, it first made appearances during the late ’80s and ’90s in New York bars when “everything in a v-shaped glass was called a Martini”.

This sparked a renaissance in drinks making, with the basic three-ingredient principles being applied to many drinks. The Martini being just one.

So let’s just get onto making this delicious drink and celebrate another cocktail hour. The ingredients below make one large or two small cocktails.

Only serve alcohol to adults of legal drinking age in your country. And please drink this Twisted French Martini in moderation, it’s just better that way.
