Lime is not the “traditional” garnish for this martini recipe, but I love how the green and pink go together making the color of the martini even pinker.

You could use the traditional lemon twist, or omit the garnish all together. The drink will still be delicious!

How to Make a French Martini

If you don’t have a cocktail shaker, don’t worry! You can still make this pink martini with just a tall glass and a fork (yes a fork!)

Here’s how you make it without a cocktail shaker: Add the ingredients to a tall glass and mix with a fork until well chilled (about 1 minute.) Use the fork to hold back the ice, while also straining the martini into your martini glass.

Alternatively, you can also make this drink “on the rocks” by adding ice to a short glass, then pouring the ingredients over the ice, stir and serve.

French Martini Recipe

I love these pretty pink martinis, and they are sweet and mild enough for people who don’t love the taste of alcohol.

I recommend making fresh pineapple juice for this recipe, it cuts down the calories, sugar and carbs. But if you get store-bought that will still work in the recipe.

Lose Weight By Eating
This French Martini recipe is made lower in calories thanks to the fresh pineapple juice.
If you don't want to make your own pineapple juice (I have supplied you with directions!) you can use store-bought. But it will change the nutrition and the flavor a bit.
Special Tip: I like to get middle shelf or above vodka for this drink. Absolut is my favorite reasonably priced vodka.
