I’ve always had slightly odd tastes. From the time I was a kid, I could devour onion like no one’s business. I drank pickle juice with my grandparents. And even when I was a kid I chose milk and fruit over candy and cookies at snack time.
Now I’ve made a Sugar Plum Martini for all of you. And I can imagine you are grossed out. Look I get it, like Taylor Swift prune juice has a big reputation. You want to navigate away to a blog with a different recipe, but don’t.
I promise you will love this martini. That’s right. I. promise.
First you have to work with me. Prune juice is something we all only drink unless we need it, if you know what I mean. Not once you pick up a bottle at Trader Joe’s. This isn’t an ad (though Trader Joe’s if you want to work with me, I am all ears). Trader Joe’s organic prune juice is cravable. It’s thick and creamy and sweet and smooth and wonderful. I want to drink it. It’s so good it’s often out of stock at our local TJ’s.
And when you combine this magical prune juice with vodka and Grand Marnier, it’s even better because vodka and Grand Marnier make everything better.
This martini has all the holiday spirit you’re looking for in a classic cocktail. The flavor is smooth and a little sweet, but you still know you are drinking a cocktail. A frozen prune keeps the drink chilled without watering it down and is a drunken treat to enjoy once the drink is consumed.Print
- 1 cup vodka (I used Cîroc)
- 1 ¼ cup prune juice (it seriously needs to be Trader Joe’s)
- ¼ cup Grand Marnier
- Juice of 1 lemon
- 4 frozen prunes
- In a medium bowl, stir together vodka, prune juice, Grand Marnier, and lemon juice. Ladle into glasses and serve immediately with a frozen prune.
