The Raspberry Martini, contrary to popular belief, is actually a pretty straightforward recipe: all you need is raspberry vodka (buying the flavored stuff is fine, but it's way more fun to make your own by soaking fresh raspberries in vodka in a jar for 3-4 weeks, then straining it through dampened cheesecloth) and some Grand Marnier orange liqueur. Sure, it may look like a traditionally "girly" drink, but show us a tough guy who doesn't think it's delicious—we dare you.
