The raspberry martini is a very popular and loved martini variation. It combines the fresh, sweet-sour flavor of raspberries and the strength of vodka to make a highly temperamental drink. The raspberry martini is a drink that could be relished throughout the night of parties and entertainments.

It contains raspberry liquor and vodka and adds lemon-lime soda to boost the slightly sour note and the sweetness. Ingredients you need include 2 parts raspberry liquor, 2 parts vodka, one part lemon-lime soda. If you use raspberry flavored vodka, you can use 1 part liquor, 3 parts vodka and 1 part lemon soda. Combine the ingredients along with some crushed ice; shake well so the flavors could combine.

You may rim the martini glass with sugar, and then serve the cocktail with fresh raspberries. If there are no fresh raspberries, you can use frozen ones you can buy at the supermarket.

. While the effect isn’t quite the same, they can still be quite nice. As an experiment, you can use the frozen raspberries in place of the ice when doing the mixing; the effect can be very much to your liking. As with any cocktail, recipes are mostly guidelines, and the secret in finding the ideal balance of ingredients lies in experimentation. The martini of today is more about having fun while creating a great recipe. A raspberry martini will surely have your guests quenching for more the next time you host a dinner party.
