*Recipe makes two cocktails.

Ingredients

  • 1 shot Malibu Rum
  • 1 shot Peach Schnapps
  • 1 shot Citron or plain Vodka
  • 6 shots cranberry juice
  • Ice cubes
  • 4 strawberries, to garnish
  • 2 lime wedges (optional)
  • 2 Martini glasses
  • Sugar to rim the glass (optional)

Instructions

  1. To make strawberry hearts for the garnish, cut a small “v” to remove the stem of the strawberry, then cut into slices. For the rim of the glass, simply make a cut halfway up the bottom of a strawberry.
  2. To rim the martini glass with sugar, run a lime wedge along the rim of the glass to get it wet and dip the glass in a plate with sugar. The drink is already sweet, but this looks good.
  3. In a shaker filled with ice, mix the rum, schnapps, vodka and cranberry juice together, shake gently and then pour into the prepared glass.
  4. Garnish your love martini with strawberry hearts and a strawberry on the rim.
  5. Drink responsibly.
