Tips for Blackberry Vanilla Vodka Martini
Double straining - straining the drink out of the cocktail shaker and through a fine mesh sieve - keeps the blackberry seeds and mint pieces out of your cocktail. If you don’t mind some berry and mint pieces in your drink, feel free to skip it. 🙂
Don't have a cocktail shaker on hand? Use a mason jar with a tight fitting lid.
It will take a couple minutes to get all of the liquid to drain out of your cocktail shaker. This is due to the mint leaves, ice, and pieces of blackberry contained in your shaker. Tip your shaker upright, then pour at an angle a few times to make sure you get all of the cocktail in your glass.
Absolutely! Just thaw them first.
I chose Smirnoff Vanilla vodka for this recipe, but Absolut Vanilla or Stoli Vanil would also be delicious.
