French Martini

Updated: Mar 15, 2022

This cocktail was produced during the 1980s–1990s cocktail renaissance at one of restaurateur, Keith McNally's New York City bars. In 1996 it would next appear on the drink’s menu at McNally's Balthazar in SoHo, a romantic brasserie serving traditional French fare from breakfast through supper. This French cocktail is made with a delicious raspberry and is not to be mistaken with a French connection.
