French Martini

Pour all the ingredients into the cocktail shaker and shake. Strain into the glass and garnish with the lemon peel.

This particular cocktail was first created in the 1980s in New York, yet it lacks the key ingredient that gives the classic martini its character: vermouth. Instead, it's named for the type of glass that's often used, although strictly speaking, martini glasses are flatter than cocktail glasses. This French martini recipe yields a sweeter, fruitier concoction that's great with dessert.

The purpose behind shaking the drink is to chill it, but it also introduces small chips of ice into the drink. These chips melt and dilute it, producing a weaker flavour. If you want a stronger-tasting drink, mix the ingredients in this French martini recipe without ice directly in the glass. Stirred, not shaken. Delicious!
