Bonefish Martini

If you follow me on Twitter, you might have noticed that I check in at Bonefish Grill on a pretty regular basis. What can I say? I really enjoy going out to dinner for seafood, as I don’t regularly make any at home (that will change once we live in a place where we can have a grill…).

However, I don’t want to talk about the seafood today. I want to talk about one of my favorite cocktails…which happens to be served at Bonefish Grill. You can pretty much guarantee that my mom and I will partake in one or two Bonefish Martinis when we dine there, because they are just so darn good. I wanted to be able to bring that drink home with me, so I investigated the recipe.

Surprise! Bonefish is forthcoming with their Bonefish Martini recipe! Hooray! And guess what…they are very simple to make…

Ingredients
  • 1.25 oz vodka
  • 1 oz cranberry juice
  • Champagne
  • Orange slices (optional)
Instructions
  1. Fill a cocktail shaker with ice; add vodka and cranberry. Shake vigorously.
  2. Strain vodka and cranberry juice mix into a martini glass. Top the cocktail with a splash of champagne (about 1 oz, depending on the size of your martini glass).
  3. Garnish with an orange slice, if desired.

 

Seriously…how gorgeous is the color of that cocktail? It definitely is reminiscent of a Cosmopolitan, with the added effervescence of the champagne in lieu of triple sec. It’s a refreshing cocktail for summer; just be careful how many of them you consume!

Anyway, I was slightly skeptical before making this cocktail at home. For some reason, when I try to recreate cocktails (or other dishes, etc.) at home, they taste good, but not exactly the same…there is always something a little off. My mom always says that things taste better when someone else makes them, so perhaps that is true in some cases. However, I have to say that this cocktail recreation was true to the original. It was certainly well received, at least…

Do you have a favorite cocktail at a restaurant? What is it?
