Valentine’s Day is coming up and what better way to celebrate than drink lots of alcohol, especially if you’re single! Lol, I’m not a fan of sweet drinks but I love the combination of flavors in this martini. It’s a fun and cute drink to make your partner or friends on Valentine’s Day! Plus it makes for a great dessert drink 🙂
- 1/4 cup Mint-Infused Simple Syrup, which you can make by combining one cup sugar, one cup water, and a bunch of fresh mint on the stove until it is a syrup consistency, strain mint from syrup
- 3 chocolate cookies, finely crushed, such as Nabisco Famous Wafers
- 10 raspberries
- 1/4 cup vodka
- 2 tablespoons cranberry juice
- Ice cubes
Fill a shallow dish with enough simple syrup to just cover the bottom.
Place crushed cookies into another shallow dish.
Invert a martini glass into simple syrup and then immediately into crushed cookies to coat the rim of the glass.
Place raspberries in a cocktail shaker; crush with a muddler.
Add simple syrup and muddle again.
Add vodka and cranberry juice; fill shaker with ice.
Shake well until chilled. Strain into prepared martini glass. Serve immediately.
