A quick and easy recipe for a non traditional martini.
Traditionally, martinis are made with gin and vermouth and this one has neither of those ingredients. This cocktail is a fruity blend that makes me dream of drinking it on the beach in Saint- Tropez. It may be far from what people define as a true martini but, it is a cocktail that deserved to be recognized nonetheless.

A fun fact about this cocktail is that it was actually created in New York but was given its name due to the use of the French raspberry liqueur, Chambord.
