History of the Pineapple Martini

Ben Reed is the charismatic, passionate cocktail expert (and author) who’s responsible for the deliciousness of the Pineapple Martini. He brought this modern classic to the party in 1997 at the opening of the legendary Met Bar in London. This Park Lane members club was the celeb hangout of the late 90’s and noughties, and we can picture The Spice Girls, Patsy Kensit, Liam Gallagher and Kate Moss sipping one of his Pineapple Martinis

When to serve

Although the Met bar is no longer, you can bring its glitz and glamour back to life in your home bar with this classic Pineapple Martini. Serve this sip of sophistication at your next cocktail party. Pineapple is a fabulous digestif, making this martini a delightful after-dinner treat. It’s fresh, bright flavours to outdoor garden parties, and pairs well with spicy foods. Don’t be shy to include a Pineapple Martini in your cocktail menu repertoire. It’s a real crowd-pleaser.

Tasty variations you must try

You’ll love our Pineapple Martini recipe so much, you’ll want to try a few variations:

  • For a crushed Pineapple Martini, muddle a handful of fresh pineapple with lime juice for a more textured drink.
  • If you are already a fan of our Pornstar Martini, try making the Pornstar Martini with pineapple juice, it’s delicious!
  • For a tropical vibe, make a Pineapple Coconut Martini. Ditch the vodka and pour this recipe with coconut rum.
  • Like a citrusy martini? Add 1 ounce of Grand Marnier for a punchier drink

How does it differ from the classic Martini?

Although a Vodka Martini is a popular variation, the Gin Martini has classic building blocks that differ from our Pineapple Martini recipe. A modern Martini is poured with 3 ounces of good gin and stirred with ½ ounce of crisp vermouth, and a twist of lemon or a green olive to garnish. Aromatic bitters are often included in martini recipes. Traditionally, a martini can be named a martini when a drink is served in a V-shaped martini glass. This design aims to keep the contents chilled for longer.

Martini magic lies in the ratios. Historically, the Martini started off with a 2:1 gin-to-vermouth ratio. Nowadays, versions erupt where ratios suit individual tastes. A Wet Martini is a 50:50 gin-to-vermouth. A Dry Martini contains little or no vermouth.  A perfect Martini has an equal mix of crisp and sweet vermouth. Then there is the savoury Dirty Martini with a cheeky splash of olive brine and the Reverse Martini with double vermouth-to-gin ratio. So basically, there is a Martini out there to suit everyone!
