Foodie Friday: French Martini #1

My drink of choice is always a French Martini. However, I have to pick and choose where I order one. Apparently it's not a very popular drink and some bartenders don't even know how to make it. There are two ways I've seen it made:

1.) Vodka, Chambord, cranberry or pineapple juice
2.) Gran Marnier, Chambord, cranberry or pineapple juice

When made correctly, it is a fabulous drink. Timpano Italian Restaurant and Mon Ami Gabi French Restaurant are two places in Maryland where I have had delicious French Martinis. Both restaurants have locations in other states as well. I haven't found a restaurant in Georgia that makes good ones yet. I'll keep you posted though.

Bon appetit!

The guys at NAVA can make them the "good" way...if the same bartenders I had are still there...I will ask my hubby.
