I Dream of Jeanie Martini: Malibu, vodka, Cointreau, cranberry & lime.

@wearsmymoney decided to give me a shout-out today, so I thought I’d feature something stylish. It might not be her style, but maybe some of her followers might find it tasty.

It’s one for lovers of the Cosmopolitan, but with a bit of a caribbean twist (if you consider Malibu to be that way inclined).

Anyone like it? Comments on my Instagram!

How To Make: I Dream of Jeanie Martini


  • 35ml of Malibu
  • 25ml of Vodka
  • 25ml of Cointreau
  • 35ml of cranberry juice
  • A glug of freshly squeezed lime juice
  • Garnish with lemon rind spiral
  • Preferred glass would be a cocktail glass
  • A dash of

Stir the spirits and juices together with ice in a glass mixing jug (my recipe calls for a shake, but I like this one stirred). Strain into a chilled cocktail glass.

Use a citrus stripper to peel a rind of lemon, but do this over the glass so that the oils from the skin coat the surface of the drink. Twirl it into a spiral and drape the rind over the edge of the glass.

Add your favourite kitsch cocktail decorations.
