Our Keto French Martini Recipe is a Keto-friendly (low-carb) version of a classic 1980s cocktail. Back then, any cocktail with “tini” in the name was a hit. The “Bond Movie” years . . . where “shaken or stirred” was the question of the day . . . you get the idea. This one is a fruity-delicious low carb version of the original vodka-based creation. We actually found a superb French restaurant, “Le Sans Souci,” in our little town in Arizona that features a French Martini on their “Happy Hour” menu! They are the inspiration for our low-carb version!
The original recipe calls for three simple ingredients – Vodka, Chambord, and Pineapple Juice! It is served chilled in a martini glass, garnished with pineapple or raspberry, and has a distinctive frothy top when served. Yes, it is shaken vigorously so the pineapple juice produces the froth. Consider it a fruity vodka martini.

What makes this martini “French” is the use of Chambord. It is a French liqueur that dates back to the 17th Century. Chambord is made with black raspberries, cognac, spices, and even vanilla from Madagascar. It is sweet with a strong raspberry flavor in predominance. Chambord is not very expensive (around $ 20 per bottle). It can also be used to make delicious Chambord Mimosas, or even Chambord Spritzers for the Holidays. We only use half of the amount of Chambord that the classic recipe includes, as we do want to capture the classic taste. The Chambord is the source of the carbs in this drink. To reduce the carbs further, you could eliminate the Chambord and substitute 1 ounce of Torani Sugar-Free Raspberry Syrup.
The other low-carb substitute needed for our Keto French Martini Recipe is Torani Sugar-Free Pineapple Syrup for the traditional pineapple juice. The fresh pineapple juice does produce that “frothy top,” as noted above. However, to keep the carbs low we sacrifice some of that effect for this sugar-free version. What we tried to reproduce is the taste in a low-carb version. This one is tasty, is easy to make, and is Tasty Low Carb!
Ready to make this delicious Martini? First, as with any martini, you will need a chilled glass. Fill your martini glass with ice cubes and set it aside while you mix the ingredients. You need a chilled glass since the drink does not contain ice cubes. Grab your cocktail shaker and fill it 1/3 full with ice cubes. Add the rest of the ingredients and shake vigorously to combine. Some mixologists want a shake long enough until they hardly hear the ice cubes clatter. Not really needed. Strain the drink so you do not have ice cubes and pour into the chilled martini glass.
For garnish, we stick with the raspberry theme. We have seen garnishes with pineapple and even lemon peel. Not sure, why the lemon peel, but it does add color and reflects the mild citrus flavor of the Chambord. Serve cold and enjoy!
