French Martini Recipe

According to The New Craft of the Cocktail by Dale Degroff, the French Martini is “one of the sparks that got the cocktail-as-martini craze started.” We love it for its simplicity and versatility.

As Louisiana is a former French territory and a lot of French cultures can still be found in the southern part of the state, we feel that this recipe is perfect to kick off our Mardi Gras cocktail list.
