Fruit martini with cherries

So here’s a festive little drink using pear flavoured vodka I made last Christmas (eep, a bit late posting); the cherries are gorgeous soaked in the cocktail then eaten, so decadent.  And I know it’s not really a martini … devotees of traditional martinis would be scandalised no doubt, however I can’t handle the real deal, a bit lame I know.

Although I do find others who drink martinis very sexy.  Ant ordered a martini on a night out a while back and I found it very suave I have to say.

And I don’t know if I’ve ever said, but these cocktail glasses are genuine 1960s glasses which used to belong to my grandmother.  There’s something about a cocktail in a proper cocktail glass isn’t there?  It always makes me feel a bit more glamorous, enjoying it that much more.

Mad Men has a lot to answer for!

  1. Emma, I adore your fruit martini, and soaking the fresh cherries in it…really is a ‘girlie’ cocktail! The martini vintage glasses are so much shorter and smaller. They are so cute!

  2. Perfect summer martini! I don’t usually like cocktails all that much, but I might have to give this one a try at my next girly night :)
