Cherry Martini

You know it was coming.

Cherry MartiniAnother cherry recipe…this one for after hours.


  • 6 ripe, juicy cherries, pitted and quartered.
  • 4 ounces vodka. I prefer Ketel One but settled for Absolut this time.
  • 4-6 ice cubes.


  1. Combine all ingredients in a shaker.
  2. Shake vigorously until fully chilled. The mixture should turn pink.
  3. Strain into martini glass.
  4. If desired, spoon cherries into glass.

This is quite tasty without being sickly sweet.

  1. Hmmm This recipe is great. I love the fact that it is not sickly sweet, and that fresh cherries are used. A delightful way to get more fruit haha!

    I am having a dinner party for 8 tomorrow night and this is definately going to be a drink I will serve for us all before the entree’s

  2. An alternative =
    1 oz Three Olives cherry vodka
    1 oz DeKuyper Cheri-Beri Pucker schnapps
    1 splash 7-Up soda

    Pour ingredients into a cocktail shaker and shake well. Strain into a cocktail glass. Garnish with a cherry at the bottom, and serve.

What do you think?
