Swedish Fish Martini
Preparation Time: 5 minutes
Serves: 1 serving
Glassware: Martini glass
60 ml (2 oz) Vodka
30 ml (1 oz) Triple Sec
30 ml (1 oz) Cranberry Juice
10 ml (1/3 oz) Lime Juice
1 Swedish Fish Candy
  1. Optional Step – Frost the rim of glass with bar sugar.
  2. Half fill cocktail shaker with crushed ice.
  3. Take vodka, triple sec, cranberry juice and lime juice into cocktail shaker and tumble it as much as possible for 30 seconds.
  4. Take pre-chilled martini glass; strain and pour chilled drink in it.
  5. Take one Swedish fish candy (If you don’t have the candy then use mint sprig) and garnish drink with it.
Tips and Variations:
  • Use cranberry liqueur instead of triple sec for more fruit flavor.
  • Shake cocktail shaker as much as you desire. More shaking will dilute the strong vodka flavor.
  • Taste of martini depends on quality of ingredients and preparation method. For best experience, use high quality vodka.
  • Add lime juice directly in serving glass instead of mixing it with other ingredients into cocktail shaker for different taste.
Taste: Chilled Swedish fish cocktail tastes sweet and smooth with cranberry flavor in every sip.
