It’s FRIYAY! So it’s only appropriate to get a little French Kiss(ing) in. Have you ever ordered a French Martini? I have, and it didn’t go the way I thought it would. I imagined immediately exuding the ‘je ne sais quoi’ of a French woman and after only one sip, my hair would blow gently in the wind, my lips would glow raspberry and all men would drop to their knees and…well…you get my drift. Instead, I puckered, choked, squinted one eye and I’m pretty sure my hair fell a bit. It was pretty clear I was American.
I can’t have that happening to anyone else, so, I’ve come up with a foolproof French Martini recipe that reduces the squint to a smolder, fluffs the hair and plumps the lips. I call it the French Kiss, and I daresay, you’ll drop at least one man or woman to their knees.
French Kiss Martini
1½ oz Vodka
1 oz Champagne
¼ oz Chambord (just a kiss!)
Splash of Cranberry Juice
Squeeze of Fresh Lime
Garnish with Fresh Raspberries
Pour vodka, champagne and just a “kiss” of Chambord into a shaker with ice. Add a splash of cranberry and a squeeze of lime and shake. Garnish with raspberries.
May your weekend start with a splash and a little smolder. Note the splash of the photo below…smolder on!
(I’m all smirks and smolder on the French countryside…okay, I’m not, but you’ll never guess where…)

Keep your heels, head and standards high and your home a happy one.
