This is not only gorgeous but delicious cocktail, which is actually a sparkling martini! It’s called Flirtini and made with vanilla vodka, champagne and pineapple juice.
This cocktail is just so “sunset at the beach,” every sip will make you believe that you are sitting in the sand with ocean breeze blowing in your hair, relaxing with a glassful of this summertime perfection!
I actually wanted to make this martini with pineapple vodka but for the life of me, I could not find any. I couldn’t believe that Total Wine, a giant spirits store, didn’t have any! Vanilla vodka worked very well but if you find pineapple vodka, use that!
Now, I bet you are wondering about the “Flirtini,” or you know exactly where this cocktail is from. This is actually a copycat champagne cocktail that was mentioned in one of my favorite shows. It’s from Sex and the City!! I was watching the show the other day and that episode happen to come on. Once I heard this flavor combination in the cocktail, I couldn’t get it out of my head.
It’s also such a perfect cocktail for summertime parties…or just having a quiet night with friends.
