Cherry Pie Martini



So, we went to see Skyfall last night and it was brilliant! I won't give anything away but will just say, go and see it, you won't be disappointed. There was dinner first at Wagamamas and of course cocktails. We went to our favourite Happy Hour cocktail bar Lola's and had Meowtinis made with Snow Leopard Vodka, rosemary and vermouth.


We're going back to some old school Bond for today's cocktail, the Cherry Pie Martini. These are inspired by You Only Live Twice which is set in Japan a land famous for it's cherry blossom.


Cherry Pie Martini
Serves 1
1 shot of vodka
1 shot of cherry syrup
1 shot of lemon juice
1/2 shot of grenadine

Shake all the ingredients with ice in a cocktail shaker and strain into a martini glass.
Garnish with a cocktail cherry.

Here's the original trailer for You Only Live Twice. It was the fifth Bond film and again stars Sean Connery with a screenplay by Roald Dahl.

  1. Awesome, I need to go & see Skyfall. I've been hearing loads of great things about it & I'm a bit obsessed with China so it should be extra awesome!

  2. That looks gorgeous too - if you've got any cherry goodness left, try a Hemingway!
