This elegant martini is sure to brighten the holidays. The Shooting Star martini is a mix of fresh raspberries, citrus lime, tart cranberry, aromatic bitters and smooth, oak-aged Canadian whisky. Its taste is rivalled only by it’s festive appearance.
Let the Shooting Star martini guide you to a very merry Christmas!
1 oz Canadian Club Whisky
1/3 oz lime juice
Splash of cranberry juice
Dash of Angostura Bitters
Starfruit slice for garnish (optional)
Start by placing ice in a martini glass to chill while making the drink. In a shaker glass, muddle the raspberries and fill with ice.
Add remaining ingredients and shake until well mixed. Discard the ice from the martini glass and strain the shaken ingredients into the now chilled martini glass. Place the slice of starfruit on the rim for garnish.
If starfruit is not available, placing three raspberries on a pick is a nice option.
You may double strain the shaken ingredients to remove the seeds from the martini if you prefer.
