Sparking Pineapple Martini

There’s something about a wintery weekend at the lake with the girls that calls for a little extra special indulgence, and this fruity champagne cocktail fits the bill perfectly. The combination of refreshing bubbles, vodka and pineapple juice is simply irresistible – it’s like taking a mini vacation to a tropical paradise while cozying up in a blanket next to a outdoor fire. I can’t think of a better way to beat the winter blues than with the girls and this delightful cocktail.

Sparking Pineapple Martini

Ingredients:

1 1/2 ounces vodka

1 1/2 ounces chilled champagne

1 ounce pineapple juice

Very conservative splash of St. Germain. (You can always use a tad of Triple Sec or a little Elderberry Syrup, if you prefer.)

Instructions

Chill a martini glass at least 30 minutes before serving. Add the ingredients to a mixing glass filled with ice. Gently stir. Place cubed pineapple into the bottom of each glass and strain. ENJOY!
