The French martini was invented in the 1980s at one of Keith McNally‘s New York City bars. It next appeared on the drinks menu at McNally’s Balthazar in SoHo in 1996. The cocktail was produced during the 1980s–1990s cocktail renaissance. The key ingredient that makes a martini “French” is Chambord, a black raspberry liqueur that has been produced in France since 1685.[1]
