Frost Bite Martini




It will be a busy day of preparation as I get ready to host my neighborhood Bunco group on the first stop of our annual progressive party. I will be serving a few appetizers, but more importantly a delicious martini to give us a fun and festive start to the night.

This Frost Bite Martini is a combination of a recipe or two that I thought sounded good, but in my opinion needed a little tweaking. Yesterday, I practiced making one and tweaked and tasted until I got the ingredients just right. The whipped cream vodka and the raspberry liqueur make a delicious combination of flavors and I think my Bunco friends will love it.

In the past years I have made a few different martinis for this event including a Merry Martini that everyone enjoyed very much. It's so much fun to prepare a festive cocktail and serve it in pretty glasses. The holiday spirit will be alive and well in my neighborhood tonight.


Frost Bite Martini

In a martini shaker filled with ice, add 1 1/2 ounces whipped cream vodka, 1/4 ounce Chambord, 2 ounces pineapple juice, 1 ounce cranberry juice and 1 ounce club soda. Shake well and pour through strainer into a pretty martini glass.

Note: when making martinis for a crowd, I always prepare a pitcher full in advance and then pour individual amounts into my martini shaker and serve. It saves a lot of measuring small quantities when your guests are waiting for a drink.

Have a wonderful weekend!

  1. Great idea to make a pitcher full ahead of the party! Your specialty drink sounds good and I'm sure your group will love it! Thanks for sharing!

  2. Great tip on making martinis for a crowd. I usually make drinks in a pitcher, but never thought to shake them individually. I'll be using this trick for sure!
