The French Martini was first invented in the 1980s at one of Keith McNally’s New York City bars. It was first seen on the menu at his famous Balthazar restaurant in Soho in 1996. It is a stunningly pretty pink and calls for vodka, raspberry liqueur, and pineapple juice.
It has a deeper and richer bourbon-based Manhattan cousin, named also for its use of the French raspberry liqueur Chambord.
