The French Martini

Recipe by Ludovic Coatanroch, Behind the Bar



So funny that the French martini was created right here in New York City, and they don't even really drink it in France, RIGHT?!


My first trip to France, 10 years ago, I ordered a mixed drink at a restaurant, and they truly were confused. It wasn't often they got requests for non-typical aperitifs.


So, since then, I have definitely learned my lesson. When in France, I'd much rather stick to what is traditional there, and explore their cultural ways.


But here in the States, it is common to order mixed drinks at a restaurant. Behind the bar at Luc's Cafe, French martini's are a cocktail that I make often. And Ludo and I thought it would be a fun drink to share during this quarantine!




It's pretty easy to make, and it can be adjusted to how sweet or un-sweet you'd like it.

We hope you enjoy it!!


Santé!
