Liz of Books n'Cooks invited all the Festive Foodies to join her for National Martini Day. Check out these other fun martini recipes for #NationalMartiniDay:

Ch-ch-ch-cherry bomb! Martini

Even though it was a weekday, all the ingredients were staring at me! The boys and I have been groovin' to the soundtrack of Guardians of the Galaxy so this is my Ch-ch-ch-cherry bomb! Martini. Happy Monday. Cheers!


I love this cocktail, and I hope that you enjoy it as much as I do.


Ingredients makes 1 cocktail
  • 2 oz gin (yes, I'm a gin girl!)
  • 3/4 oz Lillet
  • 3/4 oz Luxardo liqueur
  • 6 dashes bitters (I used the Big Sur Citrus from Golden Bear Bitters)
  • Also needed: ice, cocktail shaker, grittones for garnish


Procedure
Place all ingredients in a cocktail shaker. Shake for 30 seconds, then strain into a martini glass.  Garnish with grittones spear.

  1. I'm a gin girl to albeit I don't drink it often... enough! As you can imagine Lillet is plentiful here and we always have a bottle chilling. This cocktail sounds rather fresh and sassy. Definitely going to try it as soon as I track down Luxardo and some bitters ;-)

  2. Cherry bomb reminds me of my college days and shots- I loved those and I bet this is equally delicious!

  5. Oooo I didn't know Luxardo had a liquor. Their cherries are amazing. Off to the liquor store - this is one martini I know I'll enjoy!

    Thanks for joining me in celebrating National Martini Day!
